Hello, I was curious if anyone noticed the 'short' 7th imp Fellowship in this set listed on ebay,

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... &ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

I remember reading in The Tolkien Collector that some shorter copies had been seen, besides the 2nd & 3rd Fellowship. This is the first one I had actually seen photo's of, and thought someone else might be interested in noting it. Fairly unusual I do believe.

Probably 1,000 of these short copies were bound according to A&U correspondence, out of a total print run of A&U 4,000 copies.
The coloured top edge was also omitted.
Both errors due to Purnell & Sons, the printers/binders, who were also repsonsible for some copies of the 4th impression having silver lettering instead of gold.
