Why mention a 1978 Hobbit, I can't find it in the listing?

TOLKIEN - LORD OF THE RINGS 3 VOLUME BOX SET EDITION 1978 Hobbit !!!!!!!

I would not be happy that the reference to a 1978 Hobbit is because of PJ's Trilogy

Surely it's referring to the LR books themselves being 1978 6th impressions (TolkienBooks)? The word "hobbit" has just been tagged on to increase exposure of the auction. Yes/no?

Yes, it did, they have changed the description now.

This does not look too bad when looking at the box-set, but looks like they had very big mice, look at the rest of the pictures. To be fair does point out the issues, "Books are unread but covers are messed up. I have no idea how that happened but inside books are mint and they have no spine wear"

The seller is also using the horrible Global Postage Programme, which also deserves to disappear as soon as possible.

"Book" and "Slipcase" or "Book" (actually slipcase) and "Insert". Amazing how some peoples' minds work.
