I'm looking for a copy of The Silmarillion & was hoping someone in the UK might have a copy kicking around. You know: maybe you bought the Houghton Mifflin edition in error, or before getting the UK edition --& it's just taking up shelf space now! (--& who wants a US edition of Tolkien anyway?)

So...
The Silmarillion
Houghton Mifflin [US] 1998 Hb
1st imp. (preferred)
Nasmith DJ

There are plenty kicking about, it's just they're all on the wrong side of the Atlantic --& postage is hellish just now. I might even be willing to pay you something for it...

Cheers! --that is cheap. It's in the US though (> Find answers: "This seller doesn't offer international postage"). Plus, as I said, postage for this book is not going to be cheap. You'd probably struggle to get anyone in the US quoting less than double the Buy-it-now price to post it over to the UK.

Postage: I agree with Khamûl, a book this heavy will be $25+ to ship to the UK. I really miss the surface shipping option, which apparently is no longer available through any shipping service (that I can find). Airmail only.

Book: It is a nice book. I have a copy (two actually, one US and one UK) but they are not for sale, Ted made a nice full page sketch in each for me so these will never leave my hands!

UK availability: did you try Amazon third party sellers? Quite a few copies there (shipped from USA) and Amazon caps the shipping they can charge to under £3.

One additional note on shipping from the US internationally - there is an Airmail M-bag option for a large shipment of printed matter to one address. From the US to the UK it is $4 per pound, 11 pound minimum (so $44 minimum). Limit 20kg (44 lb) max.

So if you want to put together a large order of books from one seller, shipping can average out to be quite cheap. The seller has to be willing to do the M-bag option (which requires going in to the post office and filling out forms and getting the bag, etc.)

Note that the M-bag rate is available to other countries as well, but is slightly different, ranging from $3 per lb (Canada) to $6 per lb (Afghanistan). The 11 lb. minimum still applies.
