Can't add much more than before, Trotter.

The Silmarillion 1977, 2nd imp. Distribution date unknown. Original (covered over) price: £4.95, as with all early Silmarillions.

Since GA&U regularly re-priced books (& this would have been fairly inexpensive), I can only assume that the use of this sticker (as mentioned previously) was to remove the presence of any price, without any thoughts of re-pricing i.e. for non-trade market.

I am trying to find out any more information on these blue stickers that I can.

Can you check your books (seems to be 1975-1978 UK editions) and if you do have any with the same Blue A & U stickers can you post the edition name and printed date?

Thanks

Andrew

A very interesting article by Anke Eismann on how she personally illustrates Tolkien from The Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza

I also have two copies. In one, the impression of the signature is very clear when looked at from the other side of the page. The other is quite different. Only the upper branch of the 'K' and the underline appear as a raised area on the other side of the page. There is no other difference between the two volumes that I can discern, although the copy with a weak signature impression is somewhat more used. There is a little foxing and the dustwrapper is missing.

The other Tolkien books with facsimile impressions that I have checked (all the Tree and Leaf versions) do not show this impression, but of course they are not printed on this glossy high quality paper.

Another cracking bargain from eBay (£121.50 buyitnow), it's a paperback by the way,and from Deagol's website possibly one of the rare 10,000 issues of the first printing

Missed this part of the description "Our Team aims to provide customers with good value for money"

When posting on this thread, can you please put the salient point in the post for posterity, as the eBay auctions are only available for 3 months (I edited garm's previous post to include the ludicrous price and my previous post).
