Is this an expanded version of the material published in Tolkien Studies Vol. 7? (which I haven't read)

Okay, here's a fabulously priced "true" 1st of The Silmarillion:

eBay Item #231609865390

...with a touch of exaggeration for good measure:

1977 Allen & Unwin. This is the true first editions with no price on the flap for international distribution. The UK priced example was just for the UK. Book near fine with only minor blemmishes. Jacket near fine, no tears or marks, spine title is pink to red meaning less sunning than most copies. Generally they are available only with the spine title faded to white. As good and example as they get.

Faded to white?!

A challenge to all members & posters & the public at large. Find a 1977 copy of The Silmarillion with the "Silmarillion" spine lettering faded to white. Not orange. Not yellow. White. Can't say I've ever seen this, but what do I know?! There's a prize in it for the winner...

Exaggeration is dogfark's trademark, I think. And if you have a Billings 1st, it is total crap (and a reprint) that isn't worth having (as real collectors are only interested in the Clowes, as that is the true first). That's the general idea I get from his FB page, anyway. Still, if the can get 150 quid for a 5 quid book, that is quite a skill.
