Dear Tolkien Brasil,

It reminded me a recent article of the blog written by one of my friends, who is also a Tolkien fan in Japan.
She noticed one main character in a Japanese TV drama was playing a piano with the unique logo "...ENRY TOLKI...", and supposed from the information on the internet that it might be a piano by Henry Tolkien.

This is her article about the piano written in Japanese, but you can see some screen captures of the piano in a Japanese drama.

She and I am not sure it is true or not because we have not asked the TV station about it, but I believe Henry Tolkien's piano was also imported to Japan.

Taken together, Henry Tolkien's pianos were exported from London not only to Brazil, but also maybe to Japan, the quite opposite side of the earth!!

If you look at this thread you should be able to see which version you have.

Very quick question.

As you may know, and as I keep saying, I'm new here. However, I've visited the forum a few times before actually signing up. One thing I recall is someone inquiring about specific details of the original hardback edition of The Silmarillion illustrated by Ted Nasmith that came out in 1998, not 2004.

I got one close to Christmas myself, and am curious about the printing, impression etc...as from what I can gather it had different jacket printings etc. What I mean is, some were done in 1998, others in 1999, and then in 2000....

Anyway, here are the 'quick facts' about mine, to help the experts determine which 'one' I've actually got [if it's a 98, 99 or 00 I mean.], from what I can remember others making of note of:

- The image on the spine matches the cover image (it's the same thing duplicated)

- it says "The Myths & Legends of Middle-earth" underneath "The Silmarillion" title on the front of the dustjacket.

- The price on the front inside dustjacket flap reads "19.99 until Dec 31 1998. 24.99 from 1 January 1999" [that's the only time a date higher than 1998 appears.] Also, it has the Britis pound curreny symbol in front of the price, which I can't put in with my keyboard.

- the publishing # line on the copyright reads "1 3 5 7 98 6 4 2"

- "This illustrated edition published by Harper Collins 1998"

That's all I can think of to mention at the moment.

>Email me (Aelfwine @ elvish . org) and I'll send you the VT covers you need.

Thanks!

VT on-demand reprints are all bound volumes. The original issues were all saddle-stapled booklets.

Double thanks :)
