Now you just need to find some rare postage stamp where part of it is printed upside down, and you might get rich (although from what I understand, stamp collecting is in a bit of a lull)!

Not specifically seen it on the Silmarillion, but have seen it occasionally on other books, including a Morgoth's ring 1st. It is one of those random cock-ups that seems to happen for time to time. For most books, it seems to render them worthless (not necessarily uninteresting, though!), unless the error denotes some specific early state.

I doubt it is worth anything, but it has interest value and adds a little history to your RU set, so it is lucky, IMHO. Hopefully it hasn't discoloured any of the pages in the book, though?

Someone sold one (or more) photocopies of Tolkien's copy on eBay a couple of years ago. Did you get one of those?

I expect Trotter has at least three of the five kicking around.
