"And with all the photo's, they still don't show the most important part of the copyright page ... Billing or Clowes?"

- the top edge is blue - so I'd guess it's Billings. (The Clowes copies are unstained)

Btw - Trotter - can I ask, what was the rare item you just bought?

Have created a FAQ on the new Tolkien book:
http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... _of_Sigurd_and_Gudrun.php

Most interesting is the extent of 384 pages, the introduction by Tolkien - a lecture on Norse Legends, the confirmation that this is completely written by Tolkien, it will contain a few illustrations by artist Bill Sanderson, will be available in HB, Deluxe and Super Deluxe Edition, Audio CD and Downloadable audio as well.

The book will be released worldwide! Also in the US by Houghton Mifflin on May 5th.

They clearly haven't seen many copies if that's the best one! Sheesh! I've got a Billings copy that looks absolutely brand new (it did spent 25+ years in a box of GA&U books that apparently got forgotten about - thus avoiding anything nasty like sunlight or moisture) and cost me about 20 quid. A faded copy like that can't be worth more than a tenner (if that).

The Silmarillion 'Probably the best copy we have seen'

And with all the photo's, they still don't show the most important part of the copyright page ... Billing or Clowes?
