Christina and I have a copy also, a wedding gift from Rayner Unwin. A scan of the copyright page is below. I made the initial description of this edition for my Tolkien bibliography from the deposit copy in the British Library (acquired 11 July 1966).

Edit: Trotter inserted picture directly into post, and if you look at the picture you can see two signatures through the page

We have a first printing, 2008, in the boxed set, which we purchased on 14 February 2009 from a German seller (through abebooks) after reading about it in a post of 31 January 2009 on the Tolkien Library site.

Names can't be copyrighted, but "Tolkien" is trademarked.

Our guess would be that this is a copy of the 2nd printing of the Canadian edition. Its price was $34.95 (thanks for including an image of the front flap!). But we don't have a copy of this to verify.

Might we see photos of the title-page and the back of the title-page of the 2nd printing? These might offer a clue. Also, are there any extra marks or indentations on the lower (back) cover of the binding of the 2nd printing?
