...incidentally, how do you pull up the way the site looked in 2006? i.e. the link ( ) -BH

Thanks for that Trotter!
Just curious in case I'd missed something. I suppose the site isn't that old... (wonder if we'll ever see it!)

Dear Trotter,

I am sorry, after a better inspection the dust jacket is more grey (80%) than brown (20%), while the flaps are even complete grey.

Regards,
Sigi

Sigi,

Normally with these books, only the spine is brown from sunlight, a 50% brown dust jacket is not in fine condition.

Regards

Totter

Dear Trotter,

Thanks for clearing that up. I still don't understand why the 'expert' I asked advice from, still keeps claiming the dust jackets were brown; mayb he doesn't expect any copies of RotK/LotR with jackets being light-grey?

I asked the same question on Tolkienbooks.net to get a definite answer, but I am starting to think my copy of RotK is in such a fine condition that the dust jacket is for 50% light-grey and for 50% brown-faded around the text/pictures ...

Kind regards,
Sigi
