Imagine nobody bothering to answer you Red! Btw, did you add the little postscript about the Unwin pb? Anyway, I don't know. I don't collect US Silmarillion's, so I'm not that familiar with when the various errors (that Hammond sites) were corrected in the US edition i.e. after what printing. You have to suspect that Ballantine simply produced the paperback from an early printing. Unwin didn't. But the 1978 UK BCA edition introduced new errors, some of which weren't rectified until the 1990's BCA/Guild editions. I suspect Wayne might have a clearer answer for you.
