If HarperCollins were a small press (&/or had any sense) they would have marked this, as is common in the book trade, "PC" (i.e. printer's/publisher's copy). In the absence of any such non-numbering marking the owner is now free to mark this copy, if they are inclined to such shenanigans, with any number they desire e.g. #1, which would presumably command a higher price. Slightly odd HC didn't do this in this instance.

I have several of such books... they are author copies.
They are either unnumbered or get the initials of those who they are for. Like I have some copies with PC in them.

Indeed; but it's poor practise not to mark them for the reasons I cited. It may well have been unnumbered unintentionally, I suppose.

I bought a copy of this Canadian magazine on eBay that contains the Plimmers' interview with Tolkien that was first published in The Daily Telegraph: http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=55110

I hadn't known about this reprint. Does anyone else have a copy of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-1968-Wee ... 253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

I have this magazine, but the title in the top left box is 'The Daily-Times Journal' of Fort William.
