I have not seen this before, a review copy of Farmer Giles of Ham from 1949. The item for sale looks like it has a water damage, which is a shame.

I think publishers would offer a bit more today when sending out a review copy

He has not even got pictures of the books in good condition from the Internet. Beggars belief.

Now, now. No one would believe tosh like that.

Hoping to see the new Bond film next week, surely The Professor must get a mention, I have it on good authority that he was 'Q' in the 1940s :)

It looks like it all comes from Twitter.

This post, from a member of this site "Fool of a Took" is also interesting, wonderful rebinding, much better than the rebound copy that I have.

If you don't mind discussing, then how much did it cost and did you get a slipcase with it, and what do they all look like?
