Whilst browsing through one of my favourite books today, "JRR Tolkien -Artist and Illustrator", I was moved to wonder what kind of print runs the first impressions of the 1995 HarperCollins Hardback and subsequent 2004 HarperCollins Hardback revised edition had? I don't have the 2004 edition, but they don't seem to be terribly common (or possibly people just don't want to sell them).

Hoping that Findegil might be able to answer this one?

No. These books are really quite common as they were printed in huge numbers. There are a couple of variants, and I think the "Clowes" printed edition is possibly less common than the "Billings" version.

I think I paid about 20 pounds for my "mint" Silmarillion 1/1 a few years back, but that had been in a box of GA&U books that had been sealed since the early 80s. I got a 1/1 UT in the same condition from the same box. Those books were better than most new books in a book shop, though, so I paid a premium.

Good point. I stand corrected, Sir.
