Could you provide more detail? What book is it? (provide a link if you can); what are the two ISBN's?

I bought an identical copy, with same note & same price etc. It was discussed in an old thread; think I posted pictures. Will find the link in a bit...

Hello. This is my first post on this forum though i have been looking on here for a few weeks.


I have come across a tolkien book im interested in buying, however the ISBN on the copyright page is different to the ISBN on the dustjacket.

Is that normal for books to have two different ISBNs or are they meant to be the same.

If they are meant to be the same does that mean the seller is trying to pass off the book as a first edition, first impression, when really only the DJ is or vice versa?


Thank you.

Silmarillion - signed [GA&U employee copy]

I have recently brought a signed Silmarillion after many years of hunting.

Inside was a slip of paper dated Sept 1977 to sellers father who used to work for GA&U asking him to pay £2.48 for the signed copy.

From this it is safe to assume signed copies were sold to staff at the time.

Has anyone any idea how many of these were signed in this manner for publishers staff? .

Has anyone else got such a slip in there signed copies?

Thanks

Sorry, our mistake.


No need to apologise, I did not mean it that way, but that the letters are so terrible that they all look the same.
