eBay Item #281685165767

Anyone have any info on this auction? This may be common as dirt but I haven't soon too many listings for this with a slipcase like this.

They actually come up pretty often and usually are fairly cheap. They were produced by HarperCollins for The Book People (a UK book club). The Book People sold them off a few years back for 5 pounds including postage (which was a bargain).

They are printed in China, but are pretty good quality - probably better than the trade edition, IMHO. The Slipcase is good quality, also.

I agree with that, I think they are a good addition to your collection.

Thanks for the info, this seller won't ship to the US so I will keep looking. Its that thick slipcover that did it for me. Is this a full size or pocket edition? And will an ISBN be of help here or no?

It is the same size as the regular 70th Anniversary trade edition. ISBN is 9780007830626. I've personally never had much luck with ISBN searching.

As is this listing :(

"All published in 1966. Few age related marks but all in a great read and worth every penny"

All published in 1966, The Hobbit paperback in the picture was not and the Lord of the Rings paperbacks were at least 1974.
