Like all UK books this is mentioned on Deagol's website.

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/html/other-sc_2.htm

Interestingly The Hobbit included with this set has a green dyed top to the pages. As far as I am aware only the First Impression Hobbits and this Fourth Impression had green dye on the top of the pages.

As the other books in The Tolkien Library also had blue and red dye on the top of the pages may explain why this this Hobbit was also dyed.

I have also emailed HarperCollins explaining why the error on their FAQ (or error with the actual books, whichever it is) is fairly material to collectors when deciding whether to make a purchase. I don't think much will happen beyond them correcting the FAQ (perhaps), but we shall see....

that set is called the "Tolkien Library"

It is a set I have since I was a kid, and it does not show up very often. But who knows, now that one has been listed more will come?

Me neither. I saw him this morning on Ebay, and when I had a first look I thought it was a custom made slipcase. But when I looked better, I saw it wasn't.
Never have seen it before but I think £400 is a bit overrated for this boxset...
