The Ballantine paperback does have illustrations by Keith Henderson - as does our copy of the first American Worm Ouroboros from 1926. The Ballantine cover art appears to be by Barbara Remington, in the style of her Tolkien covers, though without any BREM signature or other indication of the artist on or in the book.

Here's something new (to me)

http://cgi.ebay.com/Worm-Ouroboros-bo ... Books&hash=item27b66058e4

The vendor says the cover art is by Henderson, the original artist for LotR. Which is nonsense; but this cover does seem like a rip-off of the Remington covers for Ballantine. Acording to a quick google, Henderson was Eddison's brother-in-law, so it's unlikely that he did the cover. I suspect the book contains prints of his original illustrations. Can anyone shed more light on this?

Something along the lines of: Dear Bookseller, thank you for your order for The Silmarillion, here is a dummy copy to help you get more.
