This (I'm now referring to Khamul's "Silmarillion") is also a Taiwanese pirated edition, publication date is 1977.
FWIW, the publisher's name (rendered in Pinyin) is Huang Jia Publishing House Ltd., and the book was distributed by Lin Kou Book Company.
The imprint also contains info on the printer, addresses, etc, the usual stuff.
There is not, however, any further information about the original publisher beyond what's written above in English, but yes, has to be HM.

Hi!

Yes, the characters are Chinese, and it's indeed a Taiwanese (Republic of China, as opposed to People's Republic of China, that is) edition, published in 1970. And it's definitely pirated, because the first licensed editions of "The Hobbit" appeared much later.

Cheers,

Thanks remy, you've sated my curiosity! :) So this was only corrected in the first paperback edition, after all.

Wayne and Christina: Thanks for answering my other question(s) in your post!
Sounds like I need to start shopping for the Descriptive Bibliography in earnest. But I'll probably wait for the second edition...quite a few things have been published since 1992, after all...
Guess it's still "premature to predict a date of publication" (quoting from your website)? Now I'm being hasty again...

Cheers,

What happened, remy? Can't find the copy? Or haven't been home yet? :)
Still curious, is all I'm saying...thanks in advance!
Sorry for being hasty, hrum, hoom.

Cheers,

Thanks again everybody...

So I've learned that my copy of SD is first impression--title page looks exactly like the one Trotter uploaded (thanks for taking the time!), that is without the number line remy also describes.

Well then, anybody own a second impression (UK hardcover) copy who can enlighten us as to whether "be" was indeed changed to "me"?

BTW, would one actually find this kind of very detailed information in the Hammond/Anderson Bibliography, I mean do they really record every single misprint or other error of any kind that was ever noted and subsequently corrected (or not, as may be)?? For example, would it answer this specific question?

I've been thinking of buying the Descriptive Bibliography before (a standard work I know), but it's a little bit on the pricey side if you're not quite the serious collector...anybody have a copy they wanna sell at a low price? ;) Juuust kidding.

Cheers,

felagund
