My 4th impression doesn't have a price either.
I think there will be a number of variations with printed prices and stickers, just like the HOME volumes issued by HarperCollins.

I have just aquired a 3rd impression 1994 Lord of the Rings HarperCollins Hardback.

The Dustwrapper is not price-clipped but has no price printed on it. I was very suprised because most of my Tolkien books from the same period, unless Book Club Editions all have printed prices.

Does anyone know if HC were still using price stickers in 1994 and if it has been removed?

My copy looked like that from when I bought it.

I think when it comes to looking after books, Gollum had the right idea, hating the Sun and living in a cavern under the Misty Mountains

I'll give them a try in the future, when buying "Tree and Leaf" from HarperCollins web site the postage was about the same as the discounted book
