Can we assume the story of Angie talking to Rayner, and he running it by CT (btw, hope the old gent had a good 86th the other day...), is rubbish?

Red, speaking of UK & US editions (and avoiding the whole so-called Hb 'Canadian' (i.e. Export) edition), there is also an Unwin 1979 Pb (like the UK Pb), but printed in Canada...

Imagine nobody bothering to answer you Red! Btw, did you add the little postscript about the Unwin pb? Anyway, I don't know. I don't collect US Silmarillion's, so I'm not that familiar with when the various errors (that Hammond sites) were corrected in the US edition i.e. after what printing. You have to suspect that Ballantine simply produced the paperback from an early printing. Unwin didn't. But the 1978 UK BCA edition introduced new errors, some of which weren't rectified until the 1990's BCA/Guild editions. I suspect Wayne might have a clearer answer for you.

It was a genuine " For heaven's sake Trotter! "...

For heaven’s sake Trotter!, I know what the bibliographical (in the purest sense of the word i.e. the printed pages only) variation is. What I’m trying to say is that the characteristics that are often inextricably linked (I, for one, used to think they went hand-in-hand; other comments suggest others think so too) to the two Clowes printing variants...

i.e.
Clowes 1st State
Both errors + cloth boards + headbands + dyed top page edges + unpriced dj
Clowes 2nd State
One error [Ulmo corrected] + paper boards + no headbands + no dyed edges + unpriced dj

--are not linked.

I have a Clowes 1st state copy meeting all of the above points except the boards are paper covered, & it has a priced dj. So all I was basically trying to say was, if you’re searching for a Clowes 1st state & you cannot get the seller to confirm the presence or absence of the errors (sometimes tricky) --the other characteristics on their own are not a guide to the state of the sheets. E.g. if you come across a paper covered Clowes it isn’t necessarily the 2nd state.
