Hello everyone i have a question for you because i cant seem to find an answer elsewhere. I have a copy of the The Lord of the Rings Special Edition Ballantine set and as i was reading through them i noticed that the end of The two towers is missing. It seems that the pages weren't torn out or removed but that it was printed this way. The binding is still very tight. i was wondering if this was a common problem for this edition? It cuts off mid word on page 416 3 pages into chapter 9 shelob's lair. Since this is an older edition does this add any value to my set? I tried to include a picture but i had some trouble trying to upload it. Thank you for reading this, any information you have would be very helpful :)

I checked a handful of copies and mine are all fine. Sounds like you have a printing error, which (in general and here specifically) makes the book pretty much worthless. If you keep an eye out on eBay, you can probably replace your book with a correct one for a few dollars, in my humble opinion.
