According to Scull & Hammond, Tolkien was at Bedford for a month in 1915. But I don't think that's the reason the street is named after him. Take a look at the map:

Yes, the copyright page matches the 1st printing; down to the 'Cover illustration by Pauline Baynes', which leads me to ask: if these few were specially bound at the printers, why isn't there something to say so, on this page or elsewhere?

I think someone somewhere along the line is not being entirely accurate.
it looks to me like just another re-bound 1st paperback.

BTW - the phrase is 'half-bound'; not 'three quarter bound'.

I'm never that impressed by this sellers auctions, but this is a sensational claim.

J.R.R. Tolkien 1st LORD OF THE RINGS EXCLUSIVELY BOUND!

I don't have the 1968 pb; does this copyright page match the pb 1st printing? Basically can anyone, with a few more copies to check than myself, confirm what edition this is...

Yes, he lived there for a short while; when he was in the army, I think.

Was Tolkien ever very close to Bedford in the UK?
