As a matter of interest has anyone got a copy of this book with the dust jacket?

Christina and I have a copy of the book, but without the dust-jacket - this is one of our elusive wants too. It was definitely issued in a jacket, though. I saw one - just one - when writing the Descriptive Bibliography. It's a typical Oxford University Press type of jacket, dark blue type on grey paper, with OUP advertisements (dated January 1928) on the lower panel.

Hello
As a matter of interest has anyone got a copy of this book with the dust jacket?
I have been on the search for one for years and never even seen one let alone tried to purchase.

Am I chasing a ghost?

Anyone kind enough to post a picture ?

Thanks

Rebinding books is ok, but not when they are as messed up as this


The following auction is for a rare first printing copy of The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien. As the copyright page clearly shows, it is a first printing - there were only 3250 copies printed


$650 USD

Thank you for the replies, Urulókë and Findegil.

It's quite an interesting piece of publication history.

We've heard somewhere that when Houghton Mifflin granted Contemporary Books permission to reprint "Oliphaunt" they thought that it was going to be just one poem in an anthology, not a separate publication.
