The 7-volume auctions were all definitely different sets Trotter; look at the the shrinkwrap coverings --all have different holes & stretches on them.

Why use this picture for ebooks?

eBay Item #221515656649

Not to mention that these ebooks are probably not legally legitimate.

This first American printing of RotK is a disaster: http://www.amazon.com/Lord-Rings-Part ... &sr=1-57&keywords=tolkien

The $170 price is almost laughable. I don't think I'd pay $17.

This is an interesting book, a 1st printing with commentary from the original buyer.

eBay Item #221519251942

The original buyer in 1962, stated that "This edition, alas, is spoiled by inappropriate illustrations".

I don't agree with these sentiments, but it is interesting that Pauline Baynes, was still being questioned as an illustrator in 1962.

I too saw this (re-listed; no buyers first time around) & found the marginalia very interesting. Not sure if it's interesting enough to make me want to buy it, but interesting nonetheless. I've been looking for copies of The Silmarillion with contemporary marginalia for quite some time (as early reception of the book itself; & marginalia [as something some readers do] is something I'm very interested in); never seen any copies though...
