I think this was just a bit of a mis-understanding / confusion on behalf of a few bidders.

As such, this is not quite a limited edition of 100 copies (There were one or two previous 'Limited' Editions). Thorton's are actually the publishers (Wim Meeuws) and the booklet is currently 'in print' and available.

I believe there were two other limited edition print runs (One being 250 copies and the other 50). I am not sure which was the first print run (possibly the 250 print run).

The current print run of 100 copies is not numbered. The earlier 250 print run is numbered on the back cover. I don't have one from the print run of 50 copies (if this exists - I belive from a previous conversation with Wim, that some/most/all of these may have been lost when he moved).

If the final bid were for a copy of the Numbered 250 Copy Limited Run, it may indeed reflect an appropriate price. I did see another copy (of the 250 print run) sell for somewhere around £60 last year on Ebay.

I hope I have most of the above information correct (not 100% on all of it, but I think it is mostly right).

I have one of the Roverandom Editions. It has a small green card inserted which states the limitation to 25 copies and the copy number.

Never seen the Hobbit or Silmarillion as of yet.

Seems to be the 1991 Signed Limited (250) One Vol Alan Lee Deluxe Edition. LOL!!! £5000 is a bit of a stretch. More like £500. Still, nice bonus for Oxfam.

I recently found an original School Register (January 1909 term) for King Edward’s School in Birmingham. It lists names and address of pupils for that term. JRRT and his brother Hilary are listed along with their address and of being under the care of Fr. Francis Morgan. Not of any bibliographical significance, but I thought it was a nice early item of Tolkien Memorabilia. It is a small softcover book, bound in dark blue soft leatherette with Gilt Titles.
