I would agree, it looks like the auction was ended early, with no bids.

Do you not mean "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition and not "Unfinished Tales", signed by Alan Lee?

The book on eBay was one of the unsigned copies.

Very good price at the moment on a UK 3rd Impression Hobbit, without a dustjacket.

Seller seems to have messed up on Shipping costs, i.e. quoting £150 to send from the UK to Italy, so please bear this in mind if you decide to bid.

The seller has also not shown any images, or discussed the top of the book, which should have a green stain on it.

This was more of a warning to anyone bidding on this, as a new and unknown Tolkien box-set.

Without winning the auction and comparing the box with my HoME slipcase, I cannot be a 100% sure, but I think it is the HoME slipcase.

I actually tried to put the relevant editions into my HoME slipcase, and it looks identical.

This is a strange one,

Q: I'm sure someone else has asked you this, as this set (i.e. six books) is unusual --but does the slipcase itself say HarperCollins anywhere on it? I mean, did you buy the set like this, or know if it was bought as a set in this slipcase? Any suspicion that the slipcase may have been made, at a later date, to house these? Any more detail appreciated.
A: I'm getting loads of questions on this set as so unusual so get 6 in a set and I my self have not been able to find in I've just checked it and no can't see any thing all I can say was that this was a gift from Harper Collins publishers and only proof I have of that is the box it was sent to me in with the label from them thank


The slipcase was not made at a later date, but is the slipcase for the 3 volume History of Middle-Earth, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=86350

I suspect that HarperCollins were trying to use up the slipcases, if they were sent these books.
