I was wondering along the same lines as Morgan. My main thought was whether Amazon.com would be selling HM copies and Amazon.co.uk would sell HC copies. I was wanting a 1/1 deluxe HC, since most of Tolkien's work was originally published in the UK I tend to prefer HC printings...

Thanks Jlong! Just got the book today and it's a very nice copy! The seller threw in a nice 1/1 (unjacketed) Tree and Leaf just as a gift!

I had been watching an auction for this ROTK 1/1, it had 3 days or so left but had a reserve. Just noticed he had reposted it as a buy it now for $195. Guess the seller thought noone was interested, but i sure was!

Let me know if your treatment works Morgan. My impression has been that stinky /mildewy books are beyond help and can affect other books. I'm interested if you have any luck, I hope you do!

Very interesting Jlong. I realize that i wasn't thinking about something very important about the Istari when i posted, "For they must be
mighty, peers of Sauron, but must forego might, and
clothe themselves in flesh so as to treat on equality
and win the trust of Elves and Men’’ (UT, 393).
This would then explain perhaps why Sauron seems so much more mighty than even Sauruman, the mightiest of the Istari. He (Sauron) did not forego any of his might, he came to Middle Earth as Melian did in full strength.
It is still interesting to me that JRR talks about the "Lords of the Valar" and states that we must assume that the Istari were all Maia. Definately leaves room for some sort of 'middle class' of Ainur, not Lords of the Valar and not servants of the Valar.
