The jacket-less HoME volumes in the picture appear to be the bible-paper editions.

These editions are very, very unlikely to appear again in the future and I expect should not have appeared in the picture

At first sight I thought they were just regular Complete HoMe volumes without jackets, but - compared to the other books on display - their width is too small to make that theory work... Very curious.

Interesting. They look like jacket-less HoME volumes, slipcased (as you say), in (perhaps?) the post-2004 (starting from the 50th Aniv. LotRs Ed.) deluxe style. That would kind of make sense I suppose. This is the first I've seen/heard though.

I didn't think for a second think they were Tolkien's comments; the seller didn't really suggest that though, did they? That said, I'm not really sure what they're claiming to be honest.

Is HarperCollins planning to reissue the HoMe deluxe series in a single slipcase? Or does anybody know something about this HoMe edition?
