Wayne & Christina just posted a summary of the update on their blog too:

Personally, I think they should straighten a few of those books up; having them sitting on the shelves like that isn't doing those spines any good at all...

And there's your answer!

Trotter, the image Deagol has up on his award winning site (), TolkienBooks.net, clearly has no such issue...

Benefit of doubt? Come on Stu, you've seen this seller's other listings. The kindest thing than one could say is: he's just another bookseller who knows nothing (by his own admission) about what he's selling. None of this would matter if it weren't for that price. It's clearly a nod to the value of the 1996 edition.

BH

EDIT: He's also got a 1996 edition listed, so it's not like he can't compare the two:

I can't decide if this is deception or stupidity of the highest order from 1973lee1973:
eBay Item #141656456501
Clearly this is 2010 Print-on-demand HarperCollins edition. One would expect a guy who's been selling Tolkien books on eBay for nearly a decade to spot this...

The generic description is also hysterically vague:
VERY SOUGHT AFTER AND COLLECTABLE
Hardback Edition of THE PEOPLES OF MIDDLE EARTH
(being book 12 in The History of Middle Earth)
rarely seen for sale
worthy of any collection
and an absolute must for any collector
------
excellent condition, not price clipped, no inscriptions - see pics for further illustration of condition

I am selling all 12 books in the History Of Middle Earth series

would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

worth much more than the asking price

low starting price, this value only likely to increase with the film release.
