There are about five variants of this edition. From memory, without going & getting them all...

Unpriced jacket & "£19.99 then £24.99" priced jacket.
Both have 'J. R. R. Tolkien’ printed with the spine (parallel to spine) in large font size; picture of Maglor perpendicular to spine; and just ‘The Silmarillion’ printed parallel to spine in large font.

£24.99 priced jacket & 2000 incarnation (2nd imp. Pb bound as Hb).
Both have ‘J. R. R. Tolkien’ perpendicular to spine (not parallel) and in smaller font size; picture is ships (not Maglor); under ‘The Silmarillion’ (which is in smaller size) additional ‘Illustrated by Ted Nasmith’ text.

2000 Pb:
Back to original setting: bigger font size; Maglor; no TN mention on spine.

The copies with unpriced jackets, "£19.99 then £24.99" jackets, and "£24.99" --are all 1st imp. copies with full line numbers. Additionally, the US first imp. was probably printed with the first UK edition. If I recall, both were printed in Spain.

At list price £25, I can't see this being anything other than a normal HC hardback i.e. having pretty average production values.

"Sumptous gift set" doesn't fill me with hope.

I think your price range is just about right. Anything under or near £100 would be pretty decent I reckon. I wouldn't personally pay more than the £175 you suggest.

I tend to avoid using my paper-backed jacket covers & use my archival (transparent plastic only) jacket covers; they're very slightly less bulky because of the lack of paper. You can also buy covers (or make your own) which only really cover the spines and covers & don't have layers of wrap-round i.e. what sellers use at book fairs. Again, this cuts down on the bulk of the covering & usually allows books to fit in their respective slipcases.

Amazon UK has it listed as a hardback for pre-order; in case there was still any debate about format:
