I noticed this morning that the e-book editions of The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún are now available, at least for the Kindle (on Amazon.com, of course).

I have a 1st/1st of UT which was stored in an A&U box (along with various other A&U titles) from new until about 4 years ago when I acquired it. It is absolutely mint with no fading, but I keep it stored in the dark to preserve the state. I can't imagine my copy is the only one that has been stored in darkness, so it is possible that is is genuine.

Looks okay to me, but without pics of the flap corners to look for the indicator points, hard to tell for sure. I have (and have seen) dustjackets this nice - just have to keep the book away from most light for a few decades. :)

TOLKIEN: UNFINISHED TALES - TRUE 1st/1st HB/DJ - RARE

Anyone else think this might not be a first state dj? Book is a 1st/1st, but I've never seen such an unfaded blue spine (-I have my suspicions.) I'm not a big fan of this sellers listings; but at least recent listings have had good copyright page photographs, giving the buyer the information the text of the listing sometimes lacks. Anyone got a 1st/1st this good?

The story is terrific! I have always been a fan of the old legends, including the Sigurd/Siefried sagas. I am afraid that many people may be turned off from this book, especially if they come to it seeking more Middle Earth. However, true Tolkien fans will enjoy it greatly, as it reveals more of the influences and ideas behind Tolkien concepts.
