I'd say most of us here have one - except that mine doesn't have a real leather binding 'with spectacular gold embellishments to the cover and spine. '

Neither do I consider it to be ' a spectacular edition worthy of any fine library or discriminating Tolkien collection.'

This dealer doesn't know his bum from his elbow...

What about this one, from the same seller?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SILMARILLION- ... tible&hash=item19c7c97418





excerpt:

"This is one of the nicest limited editions ever published. Originally printed in 1978 by Guild Publishing in London, this is leather bound with spectacular gold embellishments to the cover and spine. It contains all of the same two color illustrations by Tolkien himself found in all other editions as well as all of the original maps.

It is a spectacular edition worthy of any fine library or discriminating Tolkien collection. And if you are looking for a nice gift for a Tolkien collector, there is a good chance they don't have this as it is not very common! "

Btw, what's very near fine, d'you think? Is it like between NF & F --a kind of very good NF; or NF+...
