Splendid. Out of interest, what criteria did you apply to determine this as being a different state of the standard HC set, rather than just a different boxed set all together (as per the distinct Ted Smart/Book People entries for LOTR paperback boxed sets in tolkiebbooks.net)?

I'm tending to think that a reprint is most likely. The "the_nile_au" auction still has 5 copies after 5 being sold (it just periodically increments back up to 5), so they must have had a minimum of 10 copies available, and most likely more.

Might have been reprinted (or might just be a few copies that have surfaced -- the auction had 5 copies available) ?

How can anyone really see how good that jacket is with the protective jacket cover? It might not be that good when you get it front of you. Either way, I think the price is stupidly high, given, as Stu says, the current market. I've got plenty in this kind of condition...

Exactly right - The mylar cover should be well and truly off when taking pictures with the purpose of selling a book. All but the worst jackets look good once they have has a nice, shiny protector on them.

And lets be honest, out of the 250,000 (?) first printings of the Sil., there must still be quite a lot of them in as new condition. The key thing seems to just be to keep them away from UV.

The Easton Press have released Beowulf, in case anyone is interested.
