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.

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

I'm sure that everyone here would be very interested in the latest Blog post from Wayne & Christina entitled Fifteen Years.

Congratulations on your accomplishments in that time and the resources you have produced.
