Hmmm... pretty expensive school prize. Cost £24 in late 70's (according to Hammond)... still, I should have read the description!

Can anyone comment on The Silmarillion in The Tolkien Library boxset? Haven't bothered to look anything up here or anything, but two previous copies I've noted had 4th impressions of The Silmarillion. Also, with a school presentation certificate? --& only in The Silmarillion? Would I be presumptious to think this might not be the original copy?

Well!? Do you have any pictures?
(Might have known one had passed through your hands...)

No mistake Beren. We're talking about both. Brawn is referring specifically to a deluxe slipcase --& there was a copy on eBay in 2007. I have the original email, with item number, that I sent Deagol. Yes, it may have been a customised slipcase --but if I recall, the seller said they'd bought the three editions in the slipcase. It was black cloth, matching the single slipcases. And, to be honest, I don't recall them looking a poor fit.

Are you disagreeing with the fact ("marginally") or the justification ("production problem")? Either way, I don't see how these books should have differed from any other three book set to be housed in a slipcase. GA&U produced a five book slipcased release with The Tolkien Library; a nice set of which sold for, a more reasonable (the last set I saw go for £400 odd!), £130 on eBay the other day --& they weren't originally produced to sit in a slipcase together in the first place. I presume he simply meant that they weren't quite as uniform as they had planned (& understandably hoped) for. So who has one?
