Just wondering can anyone help on this one (photo attached).

Is this a bootleg or genuine (or something other than the limited edition distributed at the centenary event)?

I seem to remember that this cassette was issued with a coloured insert?

Here are the photos.

The leaflet mentions the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings at 25s each - so this must be the 1966 Second Edition.

Also I had a GA&U promo letter filed with this leaflet (I think I purchased the leaflet and letter together). The Letter mentions the publication of Smith & Wootton Major in November - so this dates the letter to 1967. Whether the leaflet and letter were issued together:- Not sure on that one.

Anyway, 1966/67 seems to be the timeframe.

I'll root it out when I get home later today and see what I can do.

Couldn't enlarge the photo to read (but have one of these somewhere).

From memory (may be wrong) it is promotional leaflet/booklet issued with the 2nd Edition of the Lord of the Rings in 1966

Don't really know why the spine of TT is very prone to fading (difficult one to figure out) but it is definitely an issue.

Virtually all the ones I have seen for sale over the years have had the spine of the TT faded. I think it was about 8/9 years before I found a nice original set with an unfaded spine (and not a completely outrageous price - still was quite expensive - just not completely outrageous).

Sorry to be of no absolutely no help with your question. Don't even have a guess to venture!
