Very Scarce, The Silmarillion 30th Anniversary (Deluxe Edition, 2007) FIRST PRINTING (PRINTED by I.E.G.O. ITALY)Harback in slipcase, Titles in gilt on spine, Gilt Tolkien original motif on book and slipcase, plus Taniquetil illustration on first page.The slipcase is in excellent condition with the slightest shelf wear.Book is unread and absolutely as new. Please see pictures for reference. This is the almost impossible to find first printing of this edition, since all books sold by online shops are now chinese or hong kong reprints.The first printing distinguishes from the reprint by a far high quality cream paper, gilt lettering on spine far thiner, and the spine itself more curved.The splicase is also perfectly fitting the book (instead of the basic and inaccurate slipcase of the reprints which is too big for the book). Shipping : please ask before complete the purchase. I'm located in France and will ship worlwide with secured tracking service.Shipping to France : £ 5Shipping to UK, Europe : £ 15Shipping to worlwide : £ 35
