Nah, I already have two sets of the regular Hardback -- which is one more set than I need, Nice wrappers, nonetheless! :) . I can't see those jackets being added later (post leaving wherever they originated). They appeared to be in perfect condition without rubbing to the spine, and it seems improbable someone would have taken some pristine wrappers off some presumably pristine books to put them on a set that wouldn't normally have wrappers.

It seems far more likely they came out of the printers/binders/publisher that way (IMHO). For me, as a mismatched "oddity" set, they seem to be an original part of the oddity. I would guess they were put on to limit further rubbing of the spines -- which would tie in with them perhaps being returns.

I could, of course, be wrong.

I agree it is quite hard to find as evidenced by the first post in this thread, though this would be to much for even a collector such as myself :)


If it sells, then quite honestly, I'll probably put my copy up for sale for 400. It is in better condition than that one :)

Edit: looks like it sold off eBay. Wonders how much it went for (Laurel???)
