The picture refers to a competition that HC are running at the moment.

http://www.tolkienchristmas.com/

If you look at that page you will see the same books but with the current slipcased HOME 3 volume.

I think they were doing a publicity photo and the current HOME 3 volumes would not fit in the box, so they used the leather 3 volume HOME instead.

The jacket-less HoME volumes in the picture appear to be the bible-paper editions.

These editions are very, very unlikely to appear again in the future and I expect should not have appeared in the picture

I have looked at the pictures and can not find any evidence that they are proof copies, possibly looking at the wrong pictures, but not good as to what I can see.

The books look to have water damage from the pictures that I could find and are not in the condition that I would have considered suitable for rebinding.

I do not think these are Tolkien's comments in the margin.

Definitely pre-ordering this, don't care about the 36 year wait and the real possibility that Amazon will not be around then
