Hmmm... don't think I'm not thinking about it. But definitive is quite challenging. It don't think it can be done by looking at the books alone; by this method it would be more of an overview, with clearly stated limitations. I'd like to do some research down at some of the printers archives for a start; much in the way Deagol gathered information for some of his articles on his TolkienBooks (--there's a massive amount of work behind those articles.) I'll get round to it some day...

Trotter: the non-US, non-UK statement is implying, but not stating, that this is the "Canadian" edition i.e. those 1st editions destined for the export market; sellers always state this kind of nonsense. To be honest, I'm really sick of reading these sorts of listings --when are dealers going to stop assuming that Clowes printed books plus unpriced DJs equal "first state". This is not necessarily the case. Look for the errors, by all means, but don't just look for Clowes and prices. Bah!

I think we've mentioned this seller (1973lee1973) and this very item before. DM slipcase, was it not? And, as you say, seller makes no mention of this. Have a look at this sellers items once, and you'll notice them listed & relisted again & again. This has been up on eBay for years; I'm sure it's the same set.

Thanks, Wayne & Christina, for adding you expert opinion here. The seller has visited the forum, so will hopefully see this.

Come on, someone take it off me!

Arda Reconstructed
The Creation of the Published Silmarillion
Paperback, 2011, RRP £19.95

It's in "Like New" condition. The fault is that the laminate cover is slightly parting from the underlying card along the edges. This is very minor. I can supply pictures to any potential buyer before purchase. PM me if you're interested.

Name your price!
