I don't have a definitive answer, but I do have a copy - and I can tell you that it's real leather, all right. A bookdealer I showed it to told me it's what's called 'publisher's leather'. I have a copy of 'Wuthering Heights' in the same material. It's soft, and quite thin (it smells lovely, too).

I have seen the 1977 Methuen presentation copy Silmarillion described as "being bound in dark blue leather" (p220 J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography) or "bound in dark blue leatherette" (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62110).

What is the definitive answer?

Ah, I thought so. I have first printings of those books; but only LotR is in a slipcase. The others are in boxes.

Must say the DM slipcase looks good, but for myself, I think the original boxes etc are an integral part of the book.

But you can see the spines with their own original slipcases...

'Indeed. Is it a (DM?) custom slipcase with Poems & Stories, & Unwin Hyman H & LR perhaps?'

It is indeed! I have the boxes, but much prefer to see those lovely spines. The slipcase is one of David Miller's and I love it!
