I thought I'd be quite interested in this set, but if that's roughly what it's going to look like and that is the price then there is no way I'll be buying this set.

I got a whole load of POD PBs from the US once and they all looked like that (see images). My guess is it's temperature related i.e. they were really cold in transit & then brought in to the warmth of my house. I'm sure the paper also plays a role.

Similarly I often pick up old books (which have probably been stored in cold, perhaps damp, conditions for years) & immediately in bringing them into a warm dry modern home the boards often warp.

My guess is that's your copy of B&L? This happened with CoH too & I think it was probably the paper the laid-in illustrations were printed on. Or just the rubbish paper generally...

Well, they possibly are, but they're filled with so much other rubbish (as you point out) that the top text is at the top of the page anyway. From memory, do most of them not look like they take up full pages?

Amazing how many signed standard copies of CoH are appearing on eBay recently.

Stuff like this is ridiculous though:

HC have't been "listing" reprints (e.g. in a 1977 Silmarillion way) for years and a line sequence (what they do use) doesn't take up any more room after each subsequent reprint --so not sure I follow what you're saying Trotter. Copyright page bottom justification of text is hardly a HC format preference, is it?

That said, the copyright material does indeed start half way down the page.
