Should we guess not? Recent deluxe editions (of new material) have been issued at the same time as the standard hardbacks: Beowulf, Arthur, etc. It makes sense for them to print the pages at the same time you'd think. But, maybe not; other stand-alone deluxe editions, like UT, just appeared on their own.

What do you think?

EDIT: You think 2016!

This has to be one of the most ludicrous listings I've seen in a while:
eBay Item #161802347766

We find other first edition examples of this book for sale at over $1,350!
Now that is quite a find!

Yikes indeed!

I didn't really pay that much attention to the auctions once the prices started rising. I hope you weren't only going on the presence of a cloth slipcase for impression numbering in regard to LR? Were they stated to be first impressions? Having said all this, if the seller said a copy was sealed, & it wasn't, --then clearly this is grounds for returning the item as not described. You spent a hell of a lot of money to not be happy with the condition of these books...

Okay, here's a fabulously priced "true" 1st of The Silmarillion:

eBay Item #231609865390

...with a touch of exaggeration for good measure:

1977 Allen & Unwin. This is the true first editions with no price on the flap for international distribution. The UK priced example was just for the UK. Book near fine with only minor blemmishes. Jacket near fine, no tears or marks, spine title is pink to red meaning less sunning than most copies. Generally they are available only with the spine title faded to white. As good and example as they get.

Faded to white?!

A challenge to all members & posters & the public at large. Find a 1977 copy of The Silmarillion with the "Silmarillion" spine lettering faded to white. Not orange. Not yellow. White. Can't say I've ever seen this, but what do I know?! There's a prize in it for the winner...
