The Silmarillion in our Tolkien Library set is a 2nd impression, and the set came to Christina directly from the Tolkien books Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman had kept for consultation in their library, but which they eventually gave to the Bodleian or discarded. There were in fact many copies of the Allen & Unwin 2nd impression Silmarillion still in the warehouse as late as 1992, when HarperCollins issued them in a Centenary dust-jacket.
