Thanks guys. Not sure if the slip of paper is worth the price difference to me, but there are still £60 copies of the signed edition available from tolkien.co.uk (and signed copies on eBay, etc.)


Not a big surprise that HarperCollins still have limited too 500 copies available (reminds me of Super-Deluxe books in recent years)

Stu is correct, you did get a flyer with the book and that states it is a signed copy, which is the only difference in the books apart from Mr Lee's signature.

Looking at my books, I think Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien (1979) is the first example of the monogram being used on a book.
Letters is continuing the theme.

Well it is £154 more than I paid for my copy

How rare are these copies (possibly a very large number could have been issued with the replacement dust-jacket)?

As I understand it Unwin paperbacks started to use the monogram as a branding/marketing tool for Tolkien merchandise in 1990, just before Unwin Hyman was acquired by HarperCollins.

As you pointed out it had been used before this i.e. on Letters and HOME but not in the same consistent manner as from 1990.
