Looks a nice set and maybe get at a reasonable price. Worth a double check first impressions of this printing though

If anyone is trying to assemble a set (as I was) --I have a spare 1974 TT (this is the 8th --not sure why you'd want this impression! ) & a 1973 (7th) RK.

I must admit, with books like these that have no great significance, I don't tend to worry about the impression, it is more down to getting nice condition copies with that particular style of dust-jacket. I think I paid about a pound each. I paid a bit more to get the slipcased set with these wrappers.

I've never seen a copy of The Hobbit like this re-cased, have you?

Re-cased: A book that has been glued back into its covers after having been shaken loose.

I don't think I'd ever buy this for this price, but I guess someone here might be interested.

That is not a very nice looking recasing, in my opinion. I'd rather someone did a custom binding rather than gluing old fabric down on random green boards...
