Do you think? I don't. We know the slipcase that housed these was a prototype only; therefore, it would be pretty unlikely to pop up in a 2014 HC photograph along with current editions. Additionally, those spines don't look leather. Further, if we assume the bottom of all of those books are sitting flush with the bottom of the cardboard box (not an unreasonable assumption), then these HoME volumes are far too short to be the 2000-2001 leather Eds. Yes/no?

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.
