I'm with your wife on this one; personally I wouldn't buy a mis-bound copy; but that's just me.

On the other hand, I recently bought a one-volume de luxe Lee LotR, and was dismayed to find that it has a misprint - that is, a blank leaf where one of the illustrations ought to be. For a while i was torn between sending it back (tho' I didn't find the fault until some time after I bought it) and holding on to it because it was a very good price. The vendor hadn't mentioned it, and I don't suppose he knew anything about it. So, I still have the book. I'm hoping to catch up with Alan Lee again one day; and ask him to 'personalize' it, with an inscription on that page, or even a sketch - even if it's only a 'What! No Pic?' sort of 'Kilroy was Here' type picture.

Just a quick entry: http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... -1996-illustrated-pb.html

note - some pics are posting upside-down, despite being the correct way up on file. Tying to flip them horizontally on file and re-submit doesn't change it either :(
