Nice to see a copy of Essays Presented to Charles Williams in the jacket.

3 non-matching volume numbers makes me suspect this was a reject set that probably wasn't supposed to be sold - someone at HC or the binders doing a relocation job....

This is a Tolkien signature from 1914 - you can see it in John Garth's recent Exeter College booklet.

Not his signature and as it was first written as Tolkeen and changed to Tolkien probably not written by him either....

(It dates from his time at Exeter College. 0/10 for your maths homework Khamul! )

Well the primary criterium this time was time and effort involved

A separate ISBN for the set would usually generate a new entry - as was the case for the Book People--Geoff Taylor cover art set.

I have merged entries in the past, but there are a few inconsistencies waiting for me to sort out - like the green slipcase Ted Smart H+LR set.

I went way overboard on variations in the first edition LR boxed sets, but that was just me getting a bit carried away.
