My copy is the same as Karl's.

Was not aware of any convention for slipcases until now, though I do have at least one other item that is oriented the same way as The Art of Lord of The Rings

Congratulations to Wayne and Christina for winning the Best Book of 2015
from the Tolkien Society, for this fantastic book

Received the new book yesterday, http://www.tolkien.co.uk/product/9780008131395/A+Secret+Vice, not had a chance to read much of it yet, but was fascinated to find that 'A Secret Vice' was first delivered to The Johnson Society at Pembroke College in November 1931 by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Tolkien also attended their sixtieth anniversary dinner that year in March, which is not mentioned in the book

As normal UK only.

The programme shows the oldest known copy of the Saga of Erik the Red (http://sagadb.org/eiriks_saga_rauda.en), shown in the picture below.

"Dan Snow uncovers the lost Vikings in America with space archaeologist Dr Sarah Parcak. Sarah uses satellites 383 miles above the earth to spot ruins as small as 30cm buried beneath the surface. As Sarah searches for Viking sites from Britain to America, Dan explores how they voyaged thousands of miles when most ships never left the shoreline. He also tracks their expansion west, first as raiders and then as settlers and traders throughout Britain and beyond to Iceland and Greenland. In North America they excavate what could be the most westerly Viking settlement ever discovered."

I think the seller would be very happy to get the latest bids for this book, £3900, final sale was for £4300.

Condition is important for copies without dust-jackets, even if the cloth covering and the boards are nearly always in poor condition, but this book does have serious condition problems on the inside of the book, which the seller has shown in the photos of the item.
