No idea. You'd better ask Beren where he plucked that number from?

In respect to the pirated copies of The Silmarillion --I have another three UK/GA&U copies. One has the copyright page excised (I think the original one I bought) & the other two are binding variants, being bound in slightly different colours of cloth. All three have DJs in pretty decent shape.

I've a copy of The Silmarillion (lacking the DJ unfortunately) which is similar & which, I think, I've mentioned here before. Like this H, it's not a GA&U pirate; and although it doesn't state anything on the title page regarding the publisher (unlike the Bookcase Shop UK pirate editions), it's a HMCo pirate as it states "First American Edition" (see pictures). Covers, although also red, aren't the same though; your H looks cloth bound.

There's also another ISBN (ending 0007275390) that doesn't seem to link to anything properly; e.g. eBay Item #141173825297

I guess (& have guessed) it's a glitch. Sellers posting with these ISBNs always seem to show pictures of the super deluxe; but with low prices, like with the example above (--as well as strange images of the super deluxe without the slipcase.)

Indeed, but the films haven't normally effected Silmarillion prices. Maybe this time they have.
