My grandmother gifted me a copy of The Silmarillion years ago that she had purchased from a garage sale. I have looked into it and it turns out that it is a First edition Clowes printing referred to as the "Export Edition" (I'm sure you all know this, I'm just stating what my local rare book dealer told me after we looked at it) variant 1. It has all the identifiers listing it as such and is in "fine" condition. The very top of the cover slip has some very slight curling, other than that it is in amazing condition. I don't believe the book has ever been opened simply because it feels like the spine hasn't been cracked. Can't say for sure though. Anyways, I'm not a book collector, and I would certainly be interested in selling to anyone who might be interested. My dealer told me the book is worth 650 USD, but if he were to buy it from me, he'd pay me 200 and keep the rest. I feel that's kind of a rip off and would much rather sell it to somebody at a lower price than the 650 and not be ripped off. Please feel free to comment in any way you like, I appreciate and questions, advice, or criticism, as I said I am not a collector and am very new to this. Any number of pictures can be provided, my wife is a photographer so she'll only be too happy to take photos!

Hi, Jeremy.

Thanks for the info. He's sent me photos of the game itself. I'm not sure if it's the same one, so I have sent him the link you provided to ask him.

He's not a LOTR collector himself. He collects in another movie field, our paths crossed a while back, and I occasionally trade him American things from his genre for Polish LOTR, (which is why I have a reputation amongst friends and family for "whoring for Frodo".) But seriously, it's nice to have trade relationships with reliable people you're not actually competing with, lol! Makes life much easier.

Thanks muchly for the link. I've had your very nice site on my links page, too.

On the subject of trades, I am looking for the silver foil Nestlé promo poster from the UK. It was a FOTR movie promo, late 2001, early 2002. I think maybe you had to send in proofs of purchase to get one back via mail?

I would happily trade for one. I have the gold, which was the more "premium" version, but never got around to getting a silver one, which I always regretted.

This is the gold one. It is foil, etched, and very reflective.Quite an odd promo, considering how easily they damaged, but a beautiful one.

Hello to All -

It has been extraordinarily quiet on this thread over the summer (and all of the other forums I haunt, too.) Just a note to see if anyone's around. In spite of the fact that I haven't posted since May, it seems a very short time since I did. Picked up a few calendars over the summer, and the 2009 calendars have started coming out.

We are working to finalize the 2009 Heren Istarion calendar. We are using illustrations from two new illustrators and Jef Murray has generously done up the cover for it. You will soon see it and ordering information on the herenistarion.org website. All proceeds benefit HI. Because of the 2008 calendar, HI has now made all memberships free.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir
