Looks ok to me too, but that certainly also looks to me above the 'going rate' for studies. Still, for what is a unique piece, what does a 'going rate' signify?

But the title is misspelled by the seller.

Well, the cover is in the link to Amazon. And the entry there is a usual Amazon hotchpotch. The cover says "60th anniversary edition", the review says 50th anniversary edition, the detailed data give the 1999 date of the 50th anniversary edition. The title is non-committal and has a typo (probably made by someone who could not read black letter).

I'm not doubting Beren, but Amazon's descriptions do not inspire me with any confidence in their accuracy.

Also, Amazon indicates the book as 'in stock', while at the same time HC website is totally silent about it. Not very likely.

...& with Amazon owning ABEbooks as well; and Beren in league with HarperCollins! -there's nowhere for the poor (average) collector to turn to for unbiased advice...

Indeed Trotter: It could well be either of the 1rst states (domestic or export); altho' the Billing copy DJs always seem to hold up that little bit better than the Clowes Export copies I think. The cloth is also quite dark in the picture; so I'd guess its a Billing copy too.

The nonsense about the spine (incidently the auction has been pulled) is just that: nonsense. It is clearly not red; altho' nobody is saying the jacket doesn't look otherwise Fine. But £400+!!? You could go on ABE now and buy a Metheun copy for that price. Mad is the word...
