[ABE, not eBay, but this seemed the best place to post this.]

http://www.abebooks.com/Leaf-Niggle-c ... a=want_CM&cm_ite=readmore

The listing is hyperbolic ("Quite probably the rarest of all Tolkien's publications"), factually challenged ("It is often described as providing the underpinnings of Tolkien's writings, helping to create his religious philosophy which is for example reflected in the creation of Orcs and Dwarfs by Valas, together with a suggestion that it is an autobiographical allegorical tale based on the writer's own characteristics, though he himself preferred to believe it a mythical tale."), and at $7K+ (in my estimation) substantially over-valued, but nonetheless of note as (except for one unfortunate blemish) a nice copy of a scarce work.

Thanks for the replies. Interesting that Wellinghall's first printing is "right." This would indicate that it was indeed "corrected." The publisher's image (see Amazon or Wayne & Christina's blog) clearly shows the titles both right-facing. It sure makes a lot more sense to me to have the slipcase mimic the book.

I don't think there is a hard and fast convention, but single-book slipcases from publishers I have books from have the "front-facing" information on the right of the slipcase, assuming the opening is facing towards you. Multi-book slipcases (for paperback sets, etc) seem to be a bit more random, but also more often than not follow this convention.

In this case, I'd guess a minor communications cock up between publisher and printer. Obligatory moan about everything being done in China to the detriment of our own economy, etc, etc...
