Thanks for the information alpingloin.

I am surprised they have sold as far as copy number 340. At a guess (and considering that they can now sell to the USA), this edition may sell out by mid next year. Much quicker than I thought with the price at £350. Of course, Sterling has depreciated dramatically against all other currencies in the past number of months, so I suppose it has been getting cheaper as the year has progressed. And with the additional 10% discount coupon and their large reduction in postage charges (previously £36 to Europe), it has become more reasonable to purchase.

An 'Advance Uncorrected Proof' copy of Lays (Houghton Mifflin), sold on eBay earlier this year for £34 (not sure what it was in $; although I'm sure it was from US.) Don't recall much about it, other than the fact that I'd never seen one; and that the final price was pretty low. Jeremy (Rowns) was (if I recall correctly) definitely in on the bidding; don't recall if he won it tho'...

It's been a while since I've seen a library binding like this, but they are not unique. You can see another one over at skwishmi's webiste:

From Abe:

USD $360

"Book Description: Houghton Mifflin, Wilmington, Massachusetts, U.S.A., 1987. Paper. Book Condition: Very Good. HOLIDAY SALE! ! All prices reflect a 10% discount. Extremly rare uncorrected Proof of the hard to find Volume V of the History of Middle Earth. Orange colored cover with slightly faded spine.

I'm not sure if is the same copy I came across/briefly considered a few years back. I remember at the time that the particular dealer on Abe didn't have a digital camera (!) and therefore couldn't/wouldn't provide pictures, so I decided I wasn't interested...
