According to Deagol's site

"Variants of the text on page 281
There is another area of damaged text on the last line of page 281. There are two states, priority as follows:

There is a gap in the middle of the word Me n.
The gap has been closed - Men.

The small scale survey by Steven M. Frisby found 4 out of 10 copies checked had the defective text.
"

There is no gap in my copy though, and I wonder if it smaller than '4 out of 10' that have the error.

Wants £1250 for this, but does not bother to give the limitation, i.e. signed or not by Christopher Tolkien

I hope no one is mad enough to pay that price for those books.

It looks like it was done by an employee of the Oxford University Press, who crossed out the original text and wrote in Tolkien & Gordon's names.

I have not seen anything like this before.
