Nigel Williams Rare Books was pretty well known; I didn't know Nigel at all, but probably emailed him once or twice. The name's sort of up there with Peter Harrington etc. --sad news.

Love your posts garm! Sounds like it was a great event; you couldn't even remember attending! *chuckle* --but, hold on, Alan & Ted might have been there too! Well, if I'd been to half as many Tolkien events as you, I'd probably forget who all had been there too. Anyway, I look forward to looking into TCG tomorrow; "Hold on!, I actually have one of these signed Silmarillions in my collection now that I think about it..." hehe...

The poster implies this was stuck in the book at the time: "and they placed them in the Simarillion books". This was published in 2004, which would contradict the information garm provided. Nice though...

Can't add much more than before, Trotter.

The Silmarillion 1977, 2nd imp. Distribution date unknown. Original (covered over) price: £4.95, as with all early Silmarillions.

Since GA&U regularly re-priced books (& this would have been fairly inexpensive), I can only assume that the use of this sticker (as mentioned previously) was to remove the presence of any price, without any thoughts of re-pricing i.e. for non-trade market.
