From a Tolkein[sic] Specialist

"Ballintine/Houghton Mifflin, Very first printing of the 1968 of the paperback set in response to the illegal Ballintine set. Very good overall, scuffing to all edges but no serious damage. Slipcase art by Pauline Baynes."

Only two minor problems occur to me, the Ballintine set may be illegal (I have never heard of this publisher?), the set on display appear to be the authorised Ballantine printings but did Pauline Baynes do the slipcase for this set? I had always thought it was Barbara Remington.

I would have thought the "rectangular white bits with the words" on should have got a mention, though some people here collect Silmarillion's without the words.

I'm sure a lot of visitors to the site already know these terms but just in case.

It looks like Amazon are hedging their bets on the delivery date for the facsimile Hobbit.

Delivery estimate: 21 Oct 2011 - 9 Sep 2013

The ditched copy in Unfinished Tales is my favourite map, even if it has been drawn by Christopher
