Looking at the two signatures and inscriptions side by side I am inclined to think that the cureforcancers one is a copy of the David Miller one. The Miller signature looks ok to me.

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
