I asked the seller to post images of the letter yesterday (or send me an image); clearly they've been pretty quick --& Trotter too!

I've also had a friendly email from [removed-BH] in regards to the seller's claims. I'll see what he says about the letter, which wasn't available to read yesterday when I emailed him. Anything pertinent will be posted here first.

It does just look like a rebound copy of the pb. Wayne might be able to comment on more recent 'special' bound copies of various editions. I'm pretty sure some 50th Aniversary editions of LotRs (standard or deluxe --I don't recall) were bound in full leather for a select few i.e. Wayne & Christina, Christopher, & perhaps various other folk involved in the publication. So there are 'special' editions out there; doubtful whether this is one though...

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.

SILM: Pirate Editions (Posted on: 2009/9/4 8:18)

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...
