Trotter, did you buy that set just so see what the impression numbering was? Or did you not have the set?

Bestselling Used Books on AbeBooks Since 2000:

26. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
94. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien

I may have missed it, but I didn't see LotRs on there. Kind of strange, what with The Silmarillion making it onto the list.

Email exchange with eBay seller listing copy of The Silmarillion.
Book description: "Signed pages missing". That's it, no other detail given.
I was curious...

BH Q: What do you mean by "signed pages missing"? Signed by who, and missing in what way?
I think it was signed by Tolkien's son, pages three to six has been removed, it is a first edition and still has the original map at the back.

BH Q: I'm curious as to why you would say it was signed by his son (the editor). Are you guessing this, or do you know this to be the case with this copy? And if it was signed, why would someone have torn out the pages?
To my knowledge, all first edition hard backs were signed.

BH Q: I'm assuming you're referring to this title in particular & not "all first edition hard backs" generally? Either way, Christopher Tolkien (son & editor) signed very, very few copies of The Silmarillion, considering how many were printed (i.e. hundreds of thousands). I don't think someone would have torn his signature out.

Silence...

The auction detail wasn't amazing. I'm surprised, given that, that it was snapped up for £100, to be honest. Still, it's quite uncommon.

My copy states the copyright as 2005, with "1" beneath denoting first printing; pretty much as the 2005 edition would say! Don't see any mention of "2015" on the copyright pg. at all.
