Re: Folio Silmarillion print run numbers?

I can offer only negative information, I'm afraid, i.e. that the Folio Society official bibliography (Folio 60, 2007, a lovely book in itself) gives no number of copies for the first printing. It does indicate that there were five printings through 2004, and that there was a stated limitation of 1,750 for some copies of the fourth printing (2003). The Folio Society tends not to indicate print numbers in its bibliographies, and I believe I'm correct (without unearthing my old correspondence files) that that they couldn't or wouldn't supply them for their Hobbit and Lord of the Rings when I was writing my Bibliography.
