A 67th impression?! It's amazing that they're still running this impression numbering from nearly 15 years ago.

Deagol, does the smaller A-Format (which I don't have yet) have the same ISBN as the old A-Format Silmarillion from 1999; and does it continue with the impression numbering?

Indeed; but it's poor practise not to mark them for the reasons I cited. It may well have been unnumbered unintentionally, I suppose.

If HarperCollins were a small press (&/or had any sense) they would have marked this, as is common in the book trade, "PC" (i.e. printer's/publisher's copy). In the absence of any such non-numbering marking the owner is now free to mark this copy, if they are inclined to such shenanigans, with any number they desire e.g. #1, which would presumably command a higher price. Slightly odd HC didn't do this in this instance.
