I'm looking to acquire some editions of The Silmarillion published by Guild through the 1980's; if anyone can help.

The Silmarillion. 1981 (TolkienBooks.net)

I'm not looking for the first impression; I'm looking for any of the reprints through to 1989.

I.e.
2nd imp. 1985
3rd imp. 1986
4th imp. 1988
5th imp. 1989

I'm hoping someone (once upon a time) maybe took a punt on an auction with no impression stated, hoping they got a 1st; & was disappointed to get some later reprint. And now you don't want it, perhaps.

Anyway, if anyone has one of these reprints & wishes to be parted from it --then I'm willing to buy. I have a first impression to swap if someone wants to upgrade too.

I have a reprint from 1989 (5th edition?) and would like to swap to a first edition. Book is in very good shape.

Before we go any further Laurin666, I have to mention the condition of the 1st I'm happy to swap. The book is VG: nice & tight; doesn't look particularly read; no serious scratches to the leatherette; the odd little edge bump; etc --basically, minimal faults, with nothing any of us wouldn't live with. But, there is one caveat...

There is an unusual amount of loss to the gilt on the spine (compared to the front cover, for example --where I see no loss). Title & author are visible, just. In fact, I was actually struggling to take a decent photograph of the gilt to show you; which isn't a good sign! (See attached images.) Still want to swap?

So, you can have this if you want (I appreciate it isn't much of a bargaining chip) in a swap deal; or simply name your price for the 5th impression you have, if you're happy to sell it.

I would swap it with the nice clean copy on the left side

Khamûl, I have another idea. Send you a PN
