Good stuff...

I'm not suggesting the review copy I have is any different from any other Billing copies of The Silmarillion; it is identical as far as I can see. But it is a Billing copy, and I was just curious (if it were possible to determine) how pre-publication it was. Likewise if dates could be put on the Clowes dummy copies it could help build a clearer picture of printing priority between different printers i.e. the old Clowes were in production first as they had to be shipped abroad chestnut.

Rowns, a US HoME copy of Lays just went on eBay for about £30; it was some sort of uncorrected proof copy (as you mention)...

Remy, can I get that 1998 Silmarillion 'Review' copy of you have?
