Sometimes the fates smile upon you. Last week I was perusing the book section at one of the local thrift stores when I came upon a set of the trilogy in hardcover. It was a first impression of the Unwin Allen second edition in very good condition. The best part is I picked it up for about 5 pounds. Has anyone else ever been lucky enough to stumble on a similar situation?

Thank you for the information. I couldn't check the Companion & Guide, because it's in my student's apartment. But I'll checked when I'm there again.
There was a copy of the booklet on eBay, which I was following (and perhaps to buy), but it has sold today or yesterday. Did someone of you bought it? If so, can you give me quick review when you get it?

Aw, that's a shame. (kidding)

It's my favourite Folio edition, too. The topstain is a blood red, the head and tail bands are lovely; and the pattern on the front board is ingenious. They fit in the hand lovely, too.

But you Need a slipcase with them!

I think i remember looking this up whe I bought my copy and found that "Elephant Hide" is just a tough paper which doesn't scuff easily. Not made from real elephants.
