Like all UK books this is mentioned on Deagol's website.

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/html/other-sc_2.htm

Interestingly The Hobbit included with this set has a green dyed top to the pages. As far as I am aware only the First Impression Hobbits and this Fourth Impression had green dye on the top of the pages.

As the other books in The Tolkien Library also had blue and red dye on the top of the pages may explain why this this Hobbit was also dyed.

I have emailed Harper Collins asking for a replacement copy of the Book numbered by Alan Lee.

I need to use this route before Trading Standards and the Advertising Standards Authority (both now cover websites).

If I get a reply from Harper Collins, I'll post it here.

Yes they did, sections of both The Hobbit and the Lord of The Rings jackets were shown.

Having watched the programme about 10 minutes are devoted to Tolkien with mention of The Hobbit and Tolkien's original illustrations and then a small interview with Alan Lee about illustrating The Lord of the Rings.

It still states on the FAQ on the website that it is a numbered edition and I expect that they intended it be numbered but neglected to ask Alan to number them.

There is no real value in owning this book over the £20 cheaper copy on Amazon (as it would be easy to get Alan to sign the book) and I once again feel Harper Collins have let down individuals like ourselves by overcharging for a non-exclusive copy of the book.

I might ask Trading Standards about this.
