Halla --why were you bidding on it? It doesn't say it's a 1st, & I don't see any evidence ("Questions and answers about this item" posted by seller) anyone asked. Were you anywhere near that £92 mark? I think you could get a copy far, far cheaper than this.

The listing itself is hysterical:

Must be very rare--i can't find this edition anywhere: eBay, WorthPoint, etc. No where. The only other one that came close was selling for $999. Mine looks the same as that, and is in better condition, but he says his is illustrated by Tolkien. He could be mistaken. Anyway--mine is also hardback, but illustrated by the great Alan Lee. Both b/w and color ilustrations, and lots of 'em. Inside is in absolute MINT condition. Cover is darn near mint too--just two pin-point white specks, and a 1/4" by 1/16" smudge on the back. They'll probably wipe off, but i am not going to touch this thing. Found it in parent's attic. Pages nice and crisp. Just beautiful.

Great photos to show off this very rare book, what a numpty (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=numpty)

From the pictures it appears to be missing the dust-jacket, but from the description it may be included, but even so one of the best entries to The Wonders of... for a long time

Have a look at this listing from ebay, one book seems to be a lot more expensive than items that you "can't find this edition anywhere: eBay, WorthPoint, etc. No where. The only other one that came close was selling for $999. Mine looks the same as that, and is in better condition". I can see two US copies in the listing both of which have dust-jackets.
