Yes, I had made an offer before the ebay auction started and have bought it outside of ebay.

I am interested in how rare this book actually is. It should not be rare, as it went through two printings but unlike the Heritage in Literature does not turn up.

Does anyone own the second printing of this book (1970 version)?

I think it is probably the Pleasure in Reading copy as hints are in the original post

"It's in the reading pleasure series"

garm pointed out the Longman Heritage of Literature editions, but those printings do not mention "Pleasure in Reading", that I can see.

I am confused by the seller stating that this set is by Grafton, I thought this set was Unicorn/Unwin Paperbacks, as on http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=82380

My belief is that Grafton were only around during the HarperCollins era.

Anyone ever seen any Grafton boxsets?
