I'm never that impressed by this sellers auctions, but this is a sensational claim.

J.R.R. Tolkien 1st LORD OF THE RINGS EXCLUSIVELY BOUND!

I don't have the 1968 pb; does this copyright page match the pb 1st printing? Basically can anyone, with a few more copies to check than myself, confirm what edition this is...

Andrew, are you talking about the dummy copy you just posted about? (--that I'd like in my collection!)

Dummy Silmarillion

I assume not, as it's not cloth: yes/no? It looks like the usual paper-covered boards.

I posted some pictures of a red Silmarillion I acquired in a thread a while back. It's not cloth, & I'm sure when you said "cloth" you meant it; but here's the link to the images in any case.

The post also has some speculative remarks, by myself, in regards to Wayne's Bibliography; undoubtedly in error...

So how else does it differ? Other than being bound in red cloth, does it have a dustjacket?; and if so, is this the same as the normal edition? (--except smaller) Copyright page: identical? No mention of this edition being something else? i.e. a Taiwan pirated edition or something. And is it definitely "cloth"?

I'm afraid I ain't no expert on US Silmarillions. I only have a few standard 1st printings on my shelves; & I don't have Hammond (the book that is!) to hand. More detail...

Trotter!, you damn nit-picker!

That's the way Wayne (I always assumed; presuming the format didn't accommodate italics) typed titles. I'm sure he'll correct me on this!

i.e.
_J.R.R. Tolkien, Artist & Illustrator_
_The Two Towers_
etcetera

You couldn't just have edited it once?
