I think i remember looking this up whe I bought my copy and found that "Elephant Hide" is just a tough paper which doesn't scuff easily. Not made from real elephants.

I agree these are my favourite Folio editions of "The Lord of the Rings"

The books state they are bound in "Elephant Hide", anyone have any ideas what this means?

You might want to consider this: http://cgi.ebay.com/TOLKIEN-LORD-RING ... ction&hash=item483c30dc4d

I've always liked this Folio style, but this set does lack the slipcase. For the difference in price you might be able to find a slipcase (just happen to know of an extra one hanging around, but shipping is kind of prohibitive).

Well I just spent £27 on a first edition 1997 Folio Silmarillion in fine condition - snapped up a new buy it now on ebay. Very happy with that, as it completes my folio set.

£73 left - any more ideas? Wish I had £800 for the folio deluxe lord of the rings on ebay right now!

We have it, and refer to it in the Companion and Guide, at the end of the article on Birmingham (p. 117). The chapter on Tolkien (pp. 28-33) is notable for having five photos of Tolkien's and Tolkien's grandparents' homes.
