If you don't have enough shelf-space, you can always try this US dealer's innovative approach.

I found some more pictures of this bookstore (The Derby Square Bookstore, Salem MA) and an interesting quote

I was very jealous of your signed copy when I saw it this year (it felt like leather to me)

As Deagol's site now states "bound in dark blue leather" (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62110), I think we have a definitive answer, thanks all for your contributions

I have seen the 1977 Methuen presentation copy Silmarillion described as "being bound in dark blue leather" (p220 J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography) or "bound in dark blue leatherette" (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62110).

What is the definitive answer?

It is now listed on AbeBooks , it was sold recently on eBay from the vast cavorite51 estate of 'signed' items.

http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/Boo ... rtby%3D1%26x%3D78%26y%3D9

I have emailed the seller to look at this thread and being a reputable dealer they have removed the letter from sale.
