Thanks I should have checked that

My shrink-wrapped copy has Ted Smart, embarrassingly in rather large writing, on the base of the box-set.

Now to find a non Ted Smart set

Hopefully Deagol will update

From memory (not at home at the moment), "Ted Smart" is printed on the bottom/base of the slipcase.

How do you tell the difference between these two box-sets of the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings? Is Ted Smart mentioned on the slipcase or in the books?

If you look at the first picture of it being held and zoom where the inside of the spine should be visible at the bottm, it looks like it is present. I think the person just didn't take any photos of it. Looks like a good copy for the money.

Edit - if you look at the feedback, the seller changed his mind about selling the book, and reneged on the deal.

I'm guessing someone offered him more money (which reflects as badly on the person offering on a fairly closed auction as on the seller)....
