It has a dusty slipcase & some markings to the leather on the spine. However, it's one of the signed ones --& only a few of the unsigned copies have surfaced on eBay recently. Beren?

I'm not sure what plate is the "proper" one. Deagol suggests the title page plate is the first variant (no priority mentioned, or likely); & the FFEP one (that Trotter posts) is the 2nd variant. Purely anecdotally, the FFEP friends of the publisher plate seems to be the more common. I've posted an image of the title page one. garm's plate is quite uncommon in itself --but I've never personally seen one in a Methuen copy.

BH

EDIT: Btw, the copy that had this title page plate (shown), had the FFEP plate too!

Well, it ain't common! But, I suppose CT must have signed a pile of these & not all were stuck in GA&U standard 1977 trade editions. Some, as the flatsigned auction shows, must have been given/distributed loose.
