Interesting definition of "practically".

Thanks for sharing! I've been meaning to follow up and see if I could still order a copy, this should hopefully be enough nudge to do so.

As a reputable auction house, I feel that they are following the (sadly falling out of use with the influx of so many new "booksellers") rule that "first edition" means first impression (for modern books, for older books it has meant first setting of type)

See for example
http://www.abaa.org/glossary#F

and http://www.ioba.org/pages/resources/book-terminology/
FIRST EDITION The first printing of a book, done from the original setting of type. The collectability of the first printing of the first edition was established in the early days of printing, when the type used in the presses would quickly wear away, compromising the readability of the book being printed. (Note: Technically, this term is used to describe any of the printings of a book, done from the original setting of type, at any time until the type is so altered as to constitute a second edition (see “Edition”). In the world of literature and Modern Firsts, the term is used differently, and means the very first printing of those copies, done at the same time. A second print run, though it is technically still the “First Edition”, is not what is meant by the phrase in the world of collectible Modern Firsts.) - See more at: http://www.ioba.org/pages/resources/b ... ogy/#sthash.tphG6MDK.dpuf

It does look that way from the spine photo, but the other photos look like the same size. Note how cocked the FOTR copy is too. I am thinking the books are leaning askew from each other in the spine shot making it hard to judge.

Worth asking the seller possibly, as they still have the books.
