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...

I recently acquired what is supposedly a first american edition of The Silmarillion. It is significantly smaller than any other Sils I've seen and is bound in red cloth. It has all the points of a first american edition, Father Giles of Ham etc. I've never seen it listed anywhere and was just wondering if anyone else had any information on it.
thanks

I think this one is a much better buy, a real bargain and you can buy it now though sadly not reduced by 10% (which would take $760,000 off the price)

Heh. No need for concern; I was neither offended nor incensed. It was a kind thought, but I'm not planning on selling any of the collection yet.

In fact, the plan - if I were so organized ad to have a plan - is to leave the stuff to my kids; then the collection will go back out into he secondhand market again, and (hopefully) some future collectors will get the same buzz that I got when happening across some choice piece.

Hi Garm -

I am very pleased to know that you find my site useful. I created it to be so. As you noted, it's a very specialized collection. So the number of collectors is small (and "we" all know who "we" are for the most part. But there seemed to be an influx of new people recently if I interpret a flurry of activity/purchases of these calendars on eBay correctly.)

As to the 1974 A&U mailer: You can view a fully intact one on my website. Just go to its listing in the 1969-1974 section and click on the green "mailer" link. It has tear strip to open it. Some people did. I always separated the glued flap on the back and kept the mailer essentially intact.

I'll have to add your dainties to a list that I keep so I know (or can remember!) where copies of various calendars are. Hope I did not offend you when I mentioned selling your calendar. My intent was not to get it from you. It was an offer to put you in contact with other calendar collectors and avoid the costs associated with eBay and PayPal. Some people get very incensed about mere suggestion of parting with any of their Tolkienalia.

Congratulations on the 1998 S.T.I. That's another goodie. I keep mine in Tyvek envelopes.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm
