Well it is £154 more than I paid for my copy

How rare are these copies (possibly a very large number could have been issued with the replacement dust-jacket)?

As I understand it Unwin paperbacks started to use the monogram as a branding/marketing tool for Tolkien merchandise in 1990, just before Unwin Hyman was acquired by HarperCollins.

As you pointed out it had been used before this i.e. on Letters and HOME but not in the same consistent manner as from 1990.

As I work in London, that's a great idea.

London bookshops like most cities have all but disappeared but Cecil Court and the few stores left on Charing Cross Road are worth a visit. Forbidden Planet in Shaftesbury Avenue is good for current Science Fiction and Fantasy books as well.

You may want to keep an eye on this sale as it is the same item that you are selling.
