If HarperCollins were a small press (&/or had any sense) they would have marked this, as is common in the book trade, "PC" (i.e. printer's/publisher's copy). In the absence of any such non-numbering marking the owner is now free to mark this copy, if they are inclined to such shenanigans, with any number they desire e.g. #1, which would presumably command a higher price. Slightly odd HC didn't do this in this instance.

I think this is at the heart of your problem(s)!

Yeh, I remember Wayne & Christina mentioning (here on TCG) about some piece of information that was in Folio 60; it sounded worthwhile purchasing. I take it it's a big, big volume (i.e. physical size) like Folio 50?

Is it worth purchasing Deagol? I've been trying to get a copy for a while now, but can't seem to locate a copy for a decent price. I have Folio 50; lovely big book.

Indeed, there was probably some sort of generic cover letter too --but unfortunately nothing like that was present with the book when purchased. Pity, as it would have given a date. The US copy I have has a review slip plus a letter to the reviewer plus a biographical blurb about Tolkien. Distribution of US review copies was in early August 1977.
