Here is someone who has 4 or 5 (cant recall?) review copies of the same book! Talk about crazy

You calling me crazy?!

It's definitely five copies; but whether they are all strictly review copies, I'm not sure. One is (I'm sure you possibly saw it listed on eBay; it was up for months) a Clowes "export" edition with a small folded piece of card over the ffep; card is by Methuen & has details of the price & publication date. I'm guessing it was probably presented like this for review, but possibly not.

mmm
it looks like some sort of preview copy for sure - maybe something else was attached at time as well?

Indeed, there was probably some sort of generic cover letter too --but unfortunately nothing like that was present with the book when purchased. Pity, as it would have given a date. The US copy I have has a review slip plus a letter to the reviewer plus a biographical blurb about Tolkien. Distribution of US review copies was in early August 1977.
