£196 if I recall!

By far the most interesting (from a bibliographical perspective; although haven't seen it) Silmarillion variant to appear on Ebay over the past 3-4 years. (Dummy copies generally don't seem to come up on Ebay that often do they.)

On the subject of Silmarillion's: why on earth are later Folio printings going for so much (I know it was Christmas; & there not that expensive)?? I'm looking for a few of the later impressions; just to examine - but all impressions now seem to be going for £20-50! No bargains seem to be had...

By bargain I mean <£5

Yes, yes - very good (one would like a peek at your Silmarillion Collection Deagol... ) - every now & then some other copy (with a pre-publication letter!) is casually mentioned.

Billing would surely have made a dummy/variant copy of some sort though. They would have made one in order to send to GA&U themselves. Much like that very pre(pre)-publication BCA 1978 Silmarillion that came up a while back; with printers/typographers notes on the inside cover etc...

I know (Deagol) - for heavens sake!
You got your message in before I typed my two lines...
Well seeing we all haven't go anything better to do on a Saturday night!
