This is not the original slipcase, looks like David Miller's slipcase instead, but why not state that in the description

(Very good slipcase but seller should state not the original)

Starting Price £1,250.00

1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The true 1st Edition, Allen and Unwin 1963 Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". The books are housed in a slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "triptych" artwork. This cloth bound slipcase is particularly sturdy and in excellent condition. This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and original silk bookmark sewn in. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to publishers records, 1000 or less published, some rumours say only 300 sets produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson. These sets very rarely come up for sale. minor marks to book covers and pages edges. Previous owners name top FEP of the Two Towers and Return of the King and on page with the Lord of the Rings poem in the FOTR. There is also some ink inscriptions in the FOTR and ROTK volumes on the FEP/inside book cover/BEP. Maps present in FOTR and TT, not in ROTK. Interestingly the previous owner to whom the inscriptions are written by is the costume designer for the famous Benny Hill t.v shows and his name was Christos panoupolus, whom passed away only last month.

mmmmmmmmm
this is the set just sold for £550. Odd no photo of all the writing and names in two of the volumes- would that put people off maybe ? I suspect so. Insteed use careful wording and keep fingers crossed approach. A fast buck is expression in mind!
