Hello. I am relatively new to collecting Tolkien. I recently found a copy of the Silmarillion at a flea market for $25. It's in great condition so regardless of the edition I am pleased with my purchase. However, I would like to know if I have something of greater value or not. I believe it is the export edition of the first edition. It is the 1977 edition Allen and Unwin, printed by Clowes and Sons. There is no price on the dustjacket. The top of the pages are blue. There are misprints on pages 330 (missing full stop) and 352 (the word and is italicized in Ulmo's titles).

Do I have a "find" at $25 or did I over pay?

I apologize for no pics....my scanner is acting up tonight.

I saw these and had to go digging.

He has one of the most worn and well-read copies of LOTR that I have seen in a long while, as well as a smattering of other titles (I cannot figure out what one of the books are). I also saw some Tolkien in his paperback section - Silmarillion, Sir Gawain, Tolkien Reader, etc. but didn't pull out an enlargement of those for here - that is left as an exercise for the fan as obsessed as I.

Enjoy this fuzzy treasure, though.

Well - considering you can still buy it from the stores for £48 I'd say they were pretty stupid to even try and sell it for that much.

I'd like to think that The Professor's books are in there somewhere.

and I also like that even with a Library this big he has the same problem as the rest of us and has piled up books on his chair
