This is the reference from this site

I think they are quite rare, but I have no idea of value.

HarperCollins have replied to this query.

"I can confirm that the below corrections have now been taken in to the latest impressions of the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings. Copies of the books are en route from the printer in China and should be in our warehouse around mid-February.

Readers will be able to discern which are the most correct copies of the books by checking that the respective copyright pages include “Printed in China” and have the following impression number:

The Fellowship of the Ring 8
The Two Towers 7
The Return of the King 7

I trust this information will be of use to you and to others.
"

I don't think that The Two Towers has any changes, so if you are looking to get just the books with the updates then you do not need a copy of all three books.

This is the ledger for the shoe shop, the clerks would have filled this in, not customers. It is probably a record that the young Tolkien owed them some money (looking at it again its states Paid 1st April 1914)

Even though Tolkien bought football boots I expect he used them for playing Rugby.

The date looks to be 1912, so Tolkien would have been 20, I don't think that is his signature though as there is no COA :)
