Bit slow in posting here, but previous to a few days ago I hadn't really had any remarkable finds. But, I just bought (another) GA&U (staff copy) CT signed Silmarillion last week for £5! Seller, upon questioning, stated...

" The signature " Christopher Tolkein " appears on the first free end paper. The signature is clearly and neatly written. I can not guarentee, but I think it is likely, that the signature is actually an authentic signature of Christopher Tolkein, who is the editor of this first edition of the book which was published four years after the death of the author. Christopher Tolkein is, as far as I can deduce from the foreword, the son of the author.

Yes, I think he is J. R. R. Tolkien's son; & needless to say, Christopher didn't spell his surname incorrectly...

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! "...
