Oh no. Could you guys please give an early notice, if you come across such books. I'm looking every day at ebay.uk but didn't see this listing....



Yep, I normally add things in advance assuming I'm not bidding myself. I just added this completed one to be part of the "historical record" of prices for anyone looking in the future. I was the winner on this auction and was somewhat surprised by the lack of other bids. The previous one that I noted went for GBP 102 on August 7th, which just shows the randomness of eBay auctions (plus, with eBay there is always the very strong possibility that the higher priced auction was shilled).

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.
