Yes, I recall it was someone with Valhalla or Walhalla in its name...
I have seen that copy of Lays of Beleriand too. I even was the first bidder, but because I went on holiday, I couldn't check it, and I was overbid when I came back (and lost the auction of course)...

This is quite an interesting area.

In one sense yes they are a breach of copyright, as you are taking a very quality image of the original cover and reproducing it as a high quality image. The cover images of the books are copyrighted by the book publishers and The Tolkien Estate.

In another sense they may not be in breach of copyright, if you marry the facsimile dustjacket with an original book that has lost its original wrapper, that this is a facsimile of.

The book was originally sold with a dustjacket that has been lost and you have replaced it with a copy of its original wrapper. I think it is probably difficult to argue breach of copyright in this example.

I recently bought a facimile dustjacket for the Hobbit offf Ebay the other day and I began wondering about the legallity of reproducing and seling these.

Does anyone know if this is breach of copyright or not?

It was a good price and I should have made the effort to go after it myself.

www.tolkien.co.uk is back again, hardly any difference from before, but the FAQ has changed indicating that the books are not numbered.

Does seem odd that a whole site has to be taken down for a couple of weeks to change a couple of pictures and a couple of lines of text.
