"I just counted, I have approximately 26 .... now how does that make me feel?"

what - after reading of all the books others have amassed? I'd hope you'd feel Inspired to Emulate them!

Let's have a look - yup, mine has. Hadn't noticed it before. I shouldn't let it worry you; it's not that bad.

Thanks for pointing out the letter, Trotter. This was a late addition to the vendor's listing; I didn't see it yesterday.

If this was in 1969, I wonder why an ordinary paperback would have been re-bound? However, as I can see no date on the letter (more of a memo) I don't think we can take these exagerrated claims at face value. This one seems typical of this vendor -

"Any others of these that exist are being CHERISHED by Tolkien's closest family members!"

Must be nice to be CHERISHED (!)

According to Scull & Hammond, Tolkien was at Bedford for a month in 1915. But I don't think that's the reason the street is named after him. Take a look at the map:

Yes, the copyright page matches the 1st printing; down to the 'Cover illustration by Pauline Baynes', which leads me to ask: if these few were specially bound at the printers, why isn't there something to say so, on this page or elsewhere?

I think someone somewhere along the line is not being entirely accurate.
it looks to me like just another re-bound 1st paperback.

BTW - the phrase is 'half-bound'; not 'three quarter bound'.
