I recently acquired a first Ballantine books edition of The Silmarillion, and was surprised to find that at least two of the points that denote the earlier printings of the hardcover book are present in this paperback. The period after Feanor is missing and the italicized “and” is present (Lord of Waters and King of the Sea) in the Index of Names. Not being too familiar with publishing or printing practices, I wondered if anyone could enlighten me as to why this would be the case given that in subsequent editions of the hardcover, these mistakes were rectified.
Interesting to note that the Unwin paperback edition from the same year, 1979, does have the corrected text.

Thank you from me as well for posting more background and how you are feeling, Deagol. I really appreciate all the time and effort you have put into this book, and do still hold out hope that it will see the light of day at some point.

I just PM'd the following to someone, but it pretty much sums up how I feel about it all:

It is a real shame, mostly I think for those that won't get to read the book, as I have had the privilege of reading the letters and spending hours pouring over all the papers.

Strangely I am not angry or outraged, as some seem to be judging by the response elsewhere, just disappointed that I don't get to share all the wonderful things with everybody.
