Offered For Sale is the First Edition First Impression of The Silmarillion printed by William Clowes & Sons, commonly referred to as the 'export' edition. The dust jacket does not show a price and is in nearly mint condition with no bumps or tears. The book itself is in nearly perfect condition; the gold gilt is slightly faded at the base of the spine, but the corners are all sharp but just very slightly rubbed and the bottom is slightly rounded, probably just from being shelved. The inside of the book is clean and free of any writing. The map has a small 2-3mm tear at the base of where the map is glued to the page but is otherwise in perfect condition. The top of the book still has the blue stain and blue and white headband which is correct for the export edition. All of the issues I have listed with this book are extremely minor, I only want to be sure I list everything possible as this is generally the most desired version of the first impression. I will be more than happy to send more pictures of anything I have listed as an issue with the book but I have tried to take the best pictures I can to show exactly what condition the book is in! All offers will be considered so don't hesitate to contact me! I am also offering FREE SHIPPING on this item!!! Anytime that I buy a book I like to know exactly what condition it is in prior to getting it in the mail, and I would expect nothing less from anyone else! So I have tried to note all issues or defects and accurately picture all aspects of every book I am listing. I believe a picture is worth a thousand words and will be more than happy to send additional pictures or answer any questions you might have, so please do not hesitate to send me a message! I have been collecting Tolkien books for years and have a decent collection of rare and first edition books that I have decided to sell in order to pursue other interests, so check out the other items I have up for sell! Also, I have worked very hard to take care of the books in my collection. I have placed a mylar dust cover on all of the dust jackets and have kept all of the books free of dust and in a smoke free environment. All the books I am selling are in the same condition that I bought them in, and the ones that came new in packaging were only unwrapped and placed on my shelf for admiration.
