A batch of 726 A&U copies were exported to the US.
They had the A&U title page and jacket with HM binding.

I bought the complete set of Bodleian posters in November 2013. It included the 1987 exhibition poster. The image on their website appears to be incorrect.

A link to the Tolkien Library article:

It also has the December 2008 publication date.

I would assume that HarperCollins are the source of the dates on both Amazon and Tolkien.co.uk.

We have been noting anomalies in the dates on Amazon in this forum for years, so I am no longer surprised when they don't tie in with what is actually printed inside the books.

The same date appears on Amazon. No idea of the significance.

Has anybody bought a copy in the last 6 months?

The "Look Inside" preview is a 12th impression and includes The Fall of Arthur in the other books section so must be fairly recent. My suspicion is that the preview file was updated in August 2013, but that is little more than a guess.
