Hmmm... pretty expensive school prize. Cost £24 in late 70's (according to Hammond)... still, I should have read the description!

A quick peek at TolkienBooks.net (thanks Deagol!) says 4th/5th impressions of the Silmarillion, but other impressions may have been issued as well.

I am guessing here, but the seller mentions at the very top:

I was given these books as a school prize but I already had the paperbacks, so they have stayed in their box for over thirty years.


Based on that statement, I think that explains the presentation certificate (they picked one of the books to put it in, rather than on the box or making one for each book). The printing I can't answer to without being in front of my handy Hammond for a bit more research.

Can anyone comment on The Silmarillion in The Tolkien Library boxset? Haven't bothered to look anything up here or anything, but two previous copies I've noted had 4th impressions of The Silmarillion. Also, with a school presentation certificate? --& only in The Silmarillion? Would I be presumptious to think this might not be the original copy?

PS - Jimbo, one of your auctions (270606798788) does not mention "Tolkien" anywhere in it, and thus does not show up in my widget above. Probably also means that you are not getting as many search results on eBay as you would like, so you might want to add it to the description or title somehwere. )
