A dodgy signature from a seller with a history of selling doubtful signatures. They seem to have a suspiciously large range of signatures. I would avoid at all costs. The organisation may have nothing to do with the seller of course.

Here's another 1963 ROTK in a 1965 jacket.

If anybody spots any 1963 impressions of FOTR and TT in later jackets let me know.

Thanks for all the info. It will go into the melting pot with all the other titbits I have acquired. If anybody else has any of the books mentioned above I would love to hear from you.

Jeremy - I was hoping somebody would come up with a 1963 Impression in a later jacket. In December 1964 A&U asked Jarrolds to re-price all the bound stock, but the correspondence is unclear whether this was by clipping or re-jacketing. It would be nice to find a few more copies though, just to to confirm this...

I remember from somewhere in the History of Middle-earth series that Tolkien had a grand plan for the Silmarillion that, if he had completed it, would have amounted to more than one volume, so I wouldn't be surprised if he had shown this to Clyde Kilby.


There is an article by Charles Noad in Tolkien's Legendarium (ISBN 0313305307) that tries to reconstruct Tolkien's intentions for The Silmarillion using details given on title pages of the various manuscripts described in The History of Middle-earth series . This is what he came up with:

Quenta Silmarillion

Concerning the Powers
Ainulindale
Valaquenta

The Great Tales
The Lay of Leithian
Narn i Chin Hurin
The Fall of Gondolin
Earendil the Wanderer

The Later Tales
Akallabeth
Of the Rings of Power

Appendices
The Tale of Years
Of the Laws and Customs among the Eldar
Dangweth Pengolod
Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth
Quendi and Eldar

I am researching the early publishing history of The Lord of the Rings at the moment and would be grateful if anybody can help out on the points below:

Do you have a 1963/1964 Allen & Unwin Deluxe edition? The 3 books are bound in black buckram and come in a slipcase illustrated by Pauline Baynes. If so, I would love to hear from you!


Do you have an Allen & Unwin Second Edition copy of any of the three volumes? I am looking for details for copies published between 1968 and 1978.

I need to know who is the PRINTER - Jarrold or Unwin Brothers, or maybe somebody else.
Also what price appears on the front flap of the dust jacket?


Has anybody seen a Readers Union set in a slipcase?


Has anybody got any 1963 Allen & Unwin impressions of the 3 volumes? I am interested to know if the dust jackets are price clipped, or what price they show. Also do they show the correct impression number on the front flap.

Any help would be appreciated.
