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

Thanks for posting this

I have seen lots of the Bookcase Shop Taiwan "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" in US copied DJ's but did not know that they also ripped off "The Silmarillion".

Did the Tolkien Estate/George Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins/Houghton Mifflin ever take action against this outfit?

Anyone else have a pirated Silmarillion? Just looking for comparison. I have (a couple of copies of) the Bookcase Shop Taiwan edition (as per Hammond); cream cloth boards; with (copied) UK priced-domestic jacket.

I also have a US copy (unfortunately without dj), which states on copyright page that it is a 'First Printing', 'First American Edition'; or at least copied from the US 1st/1st. Does anyone have this with a dj?/or have any further information on it?

Four pictures below. The last photo is of the Bookcase copyright page for comparison.
