Hi all,

There is a blogger working on a Silmarillion project, with some questions about various editions - if you feel like helping out, head on over.

Thanks tolkienbrasil!

That was fun to watch, and has me thinking of an educational youtube channel (explaining differences between editions/states, showing examples of bookseller terms, etc.) - perhaps members here can help out too!

For those interested, here is the link to tolkienbrasil's YouTube channel (there are already two more videos up, Roverandom and Bilbo's Last Song): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj5-YE_x424rzcBrkVxHu1w

I reached out to the magazine, and got the following helpful response. Have at if you waited!

"Our automated system (i.e. online orders) purges after three months, so we don’t have any facility to order automatically, but do still have 12 copies in the office, which we’ll happily despatch to any of your readers. Please could you ask them to order by phone on 01778 392482, as this will all have to be processed manually."

Owned myself, was a set of the fiftieth anniversary Lord of the Rings/Hobbit paperbacks in the US (and I still cringe at the artwork...) I only post a sample of one of the book covers below to spare the faint of heart.

I was offered the original Michael Herring artwork once at reasonable prices, but didn't have to think too hard before declining.

My parents had first US edition hardcovers that I read and re-read many times growing up, those are still in the family collection but unfortunately I was not kind to the dustjackets. Not first impressions thankfully.

I have no idea which version of The Silmarillion was my first, but it was a US paperback from the 80s. I doubt I still have that particular copy (as I run across so many, I have taken to only keeping the best condition copies of each edition).

Growing up in the US has made my early collecting stories rather boring and uneventful, I am afraid. Only when I had the budget to shop online did anything truly noteworthy join the collection.

Hi Josh,

I believe I picked up a spare copy at the time, but have since moved and most of these materials are still boxed up. I will try to locate some time this week. If you have not found a copy elsewhere and haven't heard from me, feel free to ask again to remind me.

[Edit] It appears that this direct link still brings up the order form for this particular back issue - I have not tried it recently, please let me know if you do and it works.

Update: per responses below, this link does not work any more. Per this response from the magazine, you may be order via phone one of the last remaining copies.

I have an email address for an editor there, let me know if you want to reach out directly and I will PM/email it to you.
