I have a UK dummy book club edition of The Silmarillion, which is both smaller than my other copies and bound in red cloth.

As my first post can I just say what a great discussion site this is. I haven't bought anything significant yet ... but I really feel like I'm getting some helpful advice before I do part with any money. Incidentally, is the general feeling that ebay is overpriced compared to real life auctions? Ebay seems to offer some bargains compared to the bookshops but I guess that takes into account the greater risk involved.

I posted some pictures of a red Silmarillion I acquired in a thread a while back. It's not cloth, & I'm sure when you said "cloth" you meant it; but here's the link to the images in any case.

The post also has some speculative remarks, by myself, in regards to Wayne's Bibliography; undoubtedly in error...

Yes, more details, please -- photo(s), if possible. Is there a date on the title-page? Is there a printing code (row of numbers) on the copyright page? Is there a fold-out map, or is the map printed on the endpapers? Presumably all as for the standard hardback, as you say it has all the points. Especially, how is it bound? My first thought was of the first American trade paperback, which is in red wrappers and somewhat smaller than the standard American hardback, but that has always had correct "Farmer Giles" in the list of works. Another thought is that the copy in question has been rebound and, in the process, cut down, perhaps a library rebinding. Are there any library marks? Or there could be a book club edition Christina and I have never seen.

So how else does it differ? Other than being bound in red cloth, does it have a dustjacket?; and if so, is this the same as the normal edition? (--except smaller) Copyright page: identical? No mention of this edition being something else? i.e. a Taiwan pirated edition or something. And is it definitely "cloth"?

I'm afraid I ain't no expert on US Silmarillions. I only have a few standard 1st printings on my shelves; & I don't have Hammond (the book that is!) to hand. More detail...
