Now we don’t know what these will go for, but the other end of the spectrum...

No one indeed...
But this is the first time I'm seeing a 1000ish price for a 2nd edition / 1st imp of LotR.

Fwiw the listing is in error, these are 2nd impressions.

Warning on this one - the dust jacket is from a third impression edition [Urulókë edit] (and I think the seller could state that a bit more strongly, though they aren't hiding the fact) so it is a £200 book at the most (the DJ is worthless). The seller is conveniently (for them) not accepting contact.

Don't you think the book would sell for more than £200 if listed now (sans DJ)? I do, even if it shouldn't. And I disagree that they're not hiding the fact... I think they're trying to ride the line between hiding it and showing/stating it. There should be at least one sentence in the listing that plainly says the jacket doesn't match the book. Not a fan.
