Hi guys!

Do you have a copy of the HarperCollins hardback edition of Tolkien and the Great War? Can you post a picture of the spine, please? Is it prone to fading?

Thank you

Don't think it is.

My spine is not at all faded, but the pages are yellowing.

I’ll post pictures in a bit.

Thank you!

Here a picture of my copy, just arrived.
I was in doubt because of the writings on the spine (they are white in my copy) and the HC logo (white, as well - I had in mind the red and blue one, or the golden one).

The wrapper on this one is especially cool because it's got the class picture on the reverse side.

White is correct for the spine text and logo.

The hidden picture in the reverse of the dustjacket is definitely cool!

Thank you all!

Yes, I agree with you, that picture of students at Exeter college is really remarkable - an hidden gem of this great book.
