I think that is officially the winner of "The wonders of eBay". We can all pack up and go home now.

I am waiting for my preorder. If it will be of any help to anyone I can post pictures as soon as it arrives.



I think that would definitely be useful for those sitting on the fence on this one.

We're two days out from the release of the new Deluxe HoME set. Has anybody seen actual images of it? I admit I had sent the publishers a message informing them about my feelings on the design etc. I doubt it would have made any difference. I'm just curious to see what the final product looks like since several sites have varying images.


Haven't seen any significantly revised design. Also haven't ordered it, given the poor pre-publication designs. I guess we will know in a few days.

That is such a ridiculous collection :)

And 40 years old today.

As requested, pictures of my copy (without the mylar protector). Even with this copy, one can find slight imperfections, but one has to be realistic -- these are things made out of paper and cloth that had to be bound, packaged, shipped, stored, etc. BUT, there were 250,000 copies printed -- that is a lot to choose from.


Jesus Christ... that is the most beautiful book I have ever seen. Your copy looks like it has been printed yesterday. Thank you very much for sharing the most elegant copy of the Silmarillion I have ever seen!

Is it 1st Impression and 1st Edition as well? Also, is this the Domestic or Export issue?

Lastly.... Mr. Stu, what do I have to do to get this copy from you?!!!?


Ha Ha - Sadly, not for sale! It is the first impression of the domestic (Billings) edition.

It is proof that really good copies do exist, though. I was lucky, as that was the first (and only) copy of this edition that I purchased, and I bought it - along with an Unfinished Tales 1st in the same condition - without seeing any photos.
