Hi,
a friend of mine has trouble finding the value (or, actually, any information, especially the date/year it was issued) of the records he recently acquired. It represents the English language course that includes two recordings by Tolkien. Basically all references to it I found so far are of a different version where the records have different cover (the one with copyright text and picture of poeple) while his version is plain text (see the pictures).
He is a great Tolkien fan and would love to find out more about this latest addition to his collection. Would any of you be able to solve this mystery?

We have had questions about these records before, have a look at this post which may answer your questions

I have seen the other posts, but those are of a different edition. You can see that the cover of the record has a picture of people in it and a copyright text while the version I have has a pure text cover without any copyright. This leads me to an assumption that it might be an older version but I would like to have it confirmed.

I can see what you mean, if you look at the two images below from the same record you can see the differences.

If I recall correctly the set your friend has is a 1930s set, while the sets with the other image are 1940s. I've had a 1930s set, but as it was incomplete (booklets missing) I sold it again. I have a complete 1940s set though.
