Here is an image for you of the lower (rear) board of a book club version of this book. Note that I have seen some where the blind-stamp is not colored, it is just an indentation in the gold faux leather, but this is a good example that really makes it stand out. Note that the spine is on the right in this photo.

Another seller that I am not affiliated with, but they have copy #117 of the 1000 first UK collector's edition of The Silmarillion.

This seller is not me, I am just passing on some interesting items:

Jobcol has five very scarce (some even rare!) items for sale on eBay right now. A first edition Leeds University Verse and an 1945 "Welsh Review" that contains the Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, for example. Get out those credit cards!

I just moved the entire site to a new SQL server (more robust and easier to back up), so let me know if you see anything strange like broken links, partial pages, garbage, etc. in any of the sections. All appears well (after the third try) but more eyes are better.

It looks like I might be able to squeeze this in at $14 or so for airmail. It is really unfortunate that the postal service has completely discontinued surface as a shipping option at this point.

Any book in a box is going to run about $17 to ship to Europe - the CD set is fairly light for its size so it comes in a bit less. For much smaller books, or books that condition is not an issue (reading copies), there is a thin flat-rate envelope that costs $12. I wish I could find cheaper options again, but so far I have not come up with any unless I am sending a huge shipment (say about 30 kg worth of books in a single go.) Maybe I can work out a distribution swap with René at TolkienWinkel.
