I must admit, I'd love to see the copyright holder (HarperCollins, I guess) stamping out the commercial sale of these facsimilie Dustjackets. Just because they are copies of older books doesn't mean that it isn't a violation of copyright. As soon as they are produced for commercial sale, any notion of "fair use" goes out of the window.

There are enough examples of books with genuine DJs in existence that these have no purpose from a historical perspective, and are primarily used to make a fast-dollar so that books in poor condition or missing DJs can be tarted up.

Having said that, I can see why it isn't really worth the effort for HC to do so (there isn't really any gain for them).

Is this a rare copy, as I don't know much about US editions

Not rare, I have a few copies (I think, have to go check the stack) myself that I have accumulated over the years. I do think the seller has an error, this is a hardcover edition not a paperback. Copies show up on eBay for about 1/10th that (so about $15 us or £10-12 or so).

Does remind me how pitifully behind I am updating the books section of the Guide. You can also go check out http://www.tolkienguide.us for Skwishmi's overview of US editions, this particular book is listed there as well.
