This isn't all that rare, is it?

I think likening it to Songs for the Philologists might be a bit hyperbolic.

My, that was a gentle flaying there, Trotter.

You are correct. Also, the 1968 date is wrong, these came out in 1965.

From a Tolkein[sic] Specialist

"Ballintine/Houghton Mifflin, Very first printing of the 1968 of the paperback set in response to the illegal Ballintine set. Very good overall, scuffing to all edges but no serious damage. Slipcase art by Pauline Baynes."

Only two minor problems occur to me, the Ballintine set may be illegal (I have never heard of this publisher?), the set on display appear to be the authorised Ballantine printings but did Pauline Baynes do the slipcase for this set? I had always thought it was Barbara Remington.

Thank you, Khamul - I'll place a bid on it later - won't go very high, though (gotta save some money for The Art of The Hobbit!)
