Wow, even has pages removed at front and back, with tape holding it together. I wouldn't buy it at a library sale for spare change...

The special thing about this edition must be the sunned spine and the fingerprints on the slipcase.

As I understand it you can buy these from thebookpeople.co.uk for £11.99 plus shipping, you could get 3 copies for the price of this ebay auction.

"I purchased this 2000 Millennium edition of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings from a bookstore specializing in rare books. However, as you can see, this is NOT a complete set! There should be seven books in a set, which spell out Tolkien's name. But here, I only have 5 of the 7---O, K, I, E, and N. "

I love the fact that he did not notice when buying, that books 1 and 3 were missing, and the slipcase

Surely you would notice that Book 1 (the start of the book) is missing
