Why are you convinced that this is a HoME standard Hb 3-volume slipcase? I mean, they look the same; but why so sure? And why would HarperCollins be needing to get rid of them? Why would they not just fill them with more HoME volumes? I mean, there must be a demand for the 3-volume st. Hb HoME set, as they're still churning them out.

Okay, so this is fairly minor (incredibly minor some might say); but it's annoying. If you were in a physical bookshop (do they still exist?! ) you'd be looking for a jacket that was cleaner ("newer") looking than this; I certainly wouldn't walk out the shop with this copy.

Deluxe arrived today, in shrinkwrap...
