Makes me very glad that the Tolkien Estate are actively trying to stop this sort of rubbish being produced, through the courts

The entire game is a fan fiction release and should not be referring to anything written by J.R.R. Tolkien.

I have linked the video, but if you decide to watch it, then you will have severe lore problems from the 1st second, and then they get worse, and worse, and worse, etc.

You have been warned.

Having watched the video, the "expert" made a lot of mistakes when discussing the letter, which is not good for the viewing public :)

They have set up a website for this, and I think it is well worth a visit.

I have just had a look at my copy and it is also clipped, the 7th impression is priced at £1.75 and not clipped, so it looks like they had dust-jackets left over with a £1.75 price on them, which were clipped for this impression. The 9th impression is £2.50 in my copy.

My 8th impression has a printed £2.00 label on it, so is slightly different.

Looks to be first impressions, but no dust-jackets and they may not be first impressions as you can't really tell from what is described by the auction house.

"Estimate: £400 - £600

Description: 1st Editions J R R Tolkien The Lord of the Rings Complete Set, The Fellowship of the Ring 1954, The Two Towers 1954 and Return of the King 1955. All published by George Allen & Unwin Limited. Hardcovers with red boards. (3 items)"
