This is a strange one,

Q: I'm sure someone else has asked you this, as this set (i.e. six books) is unusual --but does the slipcase itself say HarperCollins anywhere on it? I mean, did you buy the set like this, or know if it was bought as a set in this slipcase? Any suspicion that the slipcase may have been made, at a later date, to house these? Any more detail appreciated.
A: I'm getting loads of questions on this set as so unusual so get 6 in a set and I my self have not been able to find in I've just checked it and no can't see any thing all I can say was that this was a gift from Harper Collins publishers and only proof I have of that is the box it was sent to me in with the label from them thank


The slipcase was not made at a later date, but is the slipcase for the 3 volume History of Middle-Earth, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=86350

I suspect that HarperCollins were trying to use up the slipcases, if they were sent these books.

Why are you convinced that this is a HoME standard Hb 3-volume slipcase? I mean, they look the same; but why so sure? And why would HarperCollins be needing to get rid of them? Why would they not just fill them with more HoME volumes? I mean, there must be a demand for the 3-volume st. Hb HoME set, as they're still churning them out.

This was more of a warning to anyone bidding on this, as a new and unknown Tolkien box-set.

Without winning the auction and comparing the box with my HoME slipcase, I cannot be a 100% sure, but I think it is the HoME slipcase.

I actually tried to put the relevant editions into my HoME slipcase, and it looks identical.
