Can you say a little more about this error? I have to confess I'm not a Tolkien rune expert, but if they are selling these books all these years with an error on the cover it would find it funny (I have a sick sense of humor)

I like Easton Press - the materials are good quality, and they're well put together. But there is something odd about the decoration- it's the same on TH, LotR and Silm, but it's the runic legend 'Stand by the grey stone when the thrush knocks' which really only applies to TH.

There's an error with one of the runes, too.

For Easton Press:

Currently only the "Classics" (Hobbit, LOTR, Silmarillion 5 book set) is available from them, though they bring back the other editions occasionally when demand warrants. They are priced at $69 each ($345 for the set of five) including free shipping to the USA.

http://www.eastonpressbooks.com/leather/product.asp?code=0193

They only ship to the USA, so if any of you international TCG folk are interested, please contact me and we can work out an order with me in the middle - just need you to cover CC or PayPal fees and shipping.

I usually see these listed (and selling) on eBay for around $100 each, but if you keep your eyes out you can get most of them for $50 or so.

I have had most of these at one point or another, but have not held on to any copies. They are a reasonable binding and good quality materials, but since there is no limitation (they just keep making more and more with no printing indications) they will never become "scarce" - I figure if I want a nice set, I will still be able to get one ten years from now for the same price, so I use my space for other books.

Well it is £154 more than I paid for my copy

How rare are these copies (possibly a very large number could have been issued with the replacement dust-jacket)?
