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. Elvish script decoration above and below title on cover and title page. Part One: The Fall of Numenor and he Lost Road. Part Two: Valinor an Middle Earth Before the Lord of the Rings. Part Three: The Etymologies. Also includes, Geneologies, the 2nd simerillion map and list of names. Professional book dealer since 1975. All orders are processed promptly and packaged with the utmost care. Satisfaction guaranteed. ; Uncorrected Proof. Bookseller Inventory # 020882"


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...

If it is a proof with orange (?) boards, I saw one on Abebooks a few years back for $300-400 or so (from vague memory). I seem to remember it being up there for a long time, so not sure if anyone ever bought it.

Are uncorrected proofs from the HoMe scarce or very valuable? I'm just asking because I found a copy of The Lost Road (American edition) that is an uncorrected proof.
