Thinking about the fact that all the copies (up to now) that anyone has seen are the smaller widths, could the larger set be a HarperCollins Proof set which was subsequently rejected for the smaller size slipcase.

The books are all priced and both the covers and bindings are identical apart from width. I don't have them in front of me at the moment but the internal printed sheets looked identical, but I'll check them again.

I'm going to measure the width of each of the books tonight, difficult as there is not much difference in size.

Was that the £97 set off eBay Trotter?

J R R TOLKIEN LORD OF THE RINGS CENTENARY EDITION 1991

BH


It was and much cheaper than the original listing which I mentioned in the Wonders of eBay thread as the books are upside down in the picture

At the moment it is 4-1 for the smaller box-set. I'd like to get as many measurements as possible.

Thanks in advance for your help and assistance.

That's appalling. Amazon need to stop selling "their" books.

Do both of the sets have the centenary logo on the lower cover?


They both have the same logo's (Centenary Logo), including dustwrappers and slipcases.
