Yes, in some ways all that matters is the spine and slipcase as 99% of the time that is what you will see.


Great, my copy #205, when I bought it had a faded spine, 3 nicks in the leather, and no slipcase, so I had a matching slipcase made.

From Khamûl's list in this thread

2009: £588 [#205, unsigned, no slipcase]

Fails in every respect

I would think that in most cases, the higher priced items are later, but for UK books, on at least one edition of The Lord of the Rings, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=45450, the price was cheaper for a later edition, so does not always hold true.
