There is a hardback copy of "On Fairie Stories" in this lot, which may be of interest to someone.

The interesting thing about this edition of the Silmarillion is that there was a balls-up during production and the foreword is photo-offset (to the absolute worst standard I have ever seen on any edition of any book, ever). So the Deluxe edition printing is horrible compared to contemporary "standard" editions.

I also had to return two copies to Amazon because the quarter binding was completely misaligned. Third time was passable (just). I like the quarter black leather editions a lot, but - by God - the Silmarillion was an absolute mess.

And the slipcases ain't leather. they are plastic.

Decent enough price for all three books, mind.

Every time I see this listing it annoys me. I know the 1978 Guild Editions take "hideous faux leather" to new levels, but the artistically non-matching and irrelevant facsimile Dust Jacket just serves to make matters worse. Two quid book at best.

[Edit: The price changed downward by two orders of magnitude, so presumably was a listing mistake]
