I have a fairly comprehensive collection of all the Impressions that exist (one doesn't) and Publishers of the GA&U Silmarillion from 1977.

Deagol states on his wonderful (forgot to say fantastic) website http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62120 that there is a difference in colour on the dust jackets of the first export edition.

"The difference in colour between the two dustwrapper variants is subtle, but is noticeable when the two are placed next to each other."

I can't see this at all, all my copies look identical in colour, all 8 of them.

So if you have copies of the first Export Edition (printed by Clowes), can you confirm this statement, as I much I'd like to, I can't.

Could be. Hilary's side of the family lives in the Evesham area.

Could the "Mr GFH Tolkein" mentioned be Gabriel Tolkien, JRR's nephew?

I'm glad that it is just a simple mistake on the sellers part, but I am still amazed that buyers don't do any homewor before bidding.

When I was down at the A&U archive at Reading before Christmas, one of the archivists mentioned that people from HarperCollins had been going through the files. I guess now we know why...
