It looks like it was done by an employee of the Oxford University Press, who crossed out the original text and wrote in Tolkien & Gordon's names.

I have not seen anything like this before.

I would also like to see a Super Deluxe B&L, so how many copies should they do of this, 500 seems to be far to many, so what might be a better number?
