Thanks Khamûl. I saw some comments/notes online when looking yesterday that the BCA (book club) put this edition out too - would those be the unpriced jackets perhaps? I know that often BCA would have the same physical book and make changes to the dustjacket only, on occasion. I have no idea if that happened with this edition.

One other note - David also provided the copyright page photo, which is identical to my first impression "common" copy - definitely not indicated as a later printing!

David at The Tolkien Bookshelf was quite kind to provide the original high-resolution image of the dustjacket he had for sale. I have attached that below.

I can say the following: my personal copy looks like the "common" dustjacket spine design shown above in the thread. However, on the inside flap, it has the following for pricing info:
£19.99 until 31 December 1998
£24.99 from 1 January 1999


The picture from David fairly clearly shows just the price of £24.99 on the flap. My theory is that David's copy was an updated dustjacket from 1999 at the least, or perhaps from the 2000 reprint. It is also possible that there was a last minute decision to have the "discount" priced dustjacket, and so David's copy could predate the "common" copy. David's copy definitely has the same ISBN as my first impression in "common" dustjacket.

I don't see any other differences in the dustjackets other than the spine and price info (just from the photo, I obviously don't have both in hand.)

There may well be someone interested here. I know that TolkienLibrary set has been listed for quite a long while (perhaps it was sold and is just not marked as such).

For value, I have seen sets going for (USD) $750 and up, but they don't sell often so it is hard to say. With the movie fervor dying down, perhaps there is less demand and prices will have to drop to find a buyer. There is no harm in setting an asking price and seeing what the response is.

They fixed the link! It wouldn't load for me earlier today. That's a nice shot of the poem with the original wording (shadow that would change to darkness). Thanks for sharing!
