He makes a very good point

http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/com ... tml?origin=internalSearch

"J R R Tolkien, the Englishman I admire more than any other, was a rare combination. A scholar of the first rank, his was also a brilliant, primary imagination. He was the pre-eminent Germanic philologist of his age — specialising in 13th- and 14th- century English but knowing about Anglo-Saxon, and Norse"

"J R R Tolkien, the Englishman I admire more than any other" I agree

"So, two months ago today I was at Marquette, talking to Dr. Machan's Tolkien class* there in the morning ("how to become a Tolkien Scholar") and giving a talk at the Library in the afternoon about how THE HOBBIT manuscript wound up in Milwaukee, of all places, including an anecdotal account of what little is known about JRRT's planned trip there.** We had a good turn-out for the latter talk, which they recorded on video. And now they've gone through and put together a ten-minute representative excerpt from the Q-and-A session at the end"

This one is interesting, no mention of a slipcase, and I can not see one in the photos.

Khamûl, a lot of 99p Folio sealed sets are appearing, 'knocked off' may be correct

"I remember a good five years (or so) ago, a guy (in Glasgow; where HC printed all these editions) was selling piles of sealed HarperCollins editions; mainly the black deluxe incarnations.". I think an employee ended up in prison for stealing these from HarperCollins.
