Well I don't think anyone here is qualified to argue with an Abebooks valuation

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Silmarillion-Tr ... ks_UK&hash=item3caf0dcd45

and of course, I didn't know this but

This book will only ever increase in value. If you take it to a tolkein convention, of which there are many up and down the country each year, you can usually get them signed by Christopher Tolkein, This almost automatically doubles the value.

I just came across this auction on ebay. I believe it is a first impression of the A&U Fellowship of the Ring. I am not sure that the seller realizes what he's got. It's a pretty poor picture and the description is lacking, but it could be a steal for anyone looking to complete a set or pick up a copy for rebinding. UK shipping only, though.

I can't agree with David Brawn's comments that "a production problem resulted in the heights of the three volumes being marginally different". The books vary considerably in width and height between the three editions. It would have been very difficult to make a slipcase that housed the three books, you would have needed some sort of padding to stop the books falling out.


Actually the books themselves only differ in height quite marginally. I think my volume and 1,2 and 3 only differ in height by 1-1.5mm or so (from shortest to tallest). The real issue in height on these volumes is all down to the different construction of the slipcases, which exaggerates the differences hugely. It would be quite easy to make a slipcase housing all three that would look "OK", but not great (especially when also taking into account the different profiles of the spines). This is evidently what HC found, so they decided not to bother.

Stu.

Well!? Do you have any pictures?
(Might have known one had passed through your hands...)
