Re: SILM: Pirate Editions

(Trotter) I've noticed that Hobbit (1972?) Taiwan pirate copy on eBay Buy-It-Now for a while now (or something like that, if I recall). I'm not that interested in them besides the Silmarillion copies.

The Bookcase Shop copy is stated to be authorized. And, is in Hammond under the Billing UK domestic entry as authorized by GA&U. Although, with both errors corrected, it presumeably wasn't actually taken from the Billing printing, but more likely the Clowes 2nd impression; Hammond entered it here, I'm sure, as Bibliography doesn't have seperate entries for each impression with different printers for reasons of space etc.

There is no mention of the US pirate. I'm sure it came with a dj; I've seen other dealers mention a US pirate with a dj. Both errors are present & uncorrected in this red-covered copy. Does anyone know when these two errors were corrected in the US Silmarillion? Between the 1rst & 2nd impressions? Not that it matters in this respect, as the copyright claim (that it is from the US 1rst printing) would appear to be correct.
