Hmmm... don't think I'm not thinking about it. But definitive is quite challenging. It don't think it can be done by looking at the books alone; by this method it would be more of an overview, with clearly stated limitations. I'd like to do some research down at some of the printers archives for a start; much in the way Deagol gathered information for some of his articles on his TolkienBooks (--there's a massive amount of work behind those articles.) I'll get round to it some day...

I just updated the Quettar TCG page with links to lulu.com for issues 1-40. Volume four has been available for months now, but I have been lax in getting the notification out.

Hi Khamul,

someone (nudge nudge) should write a definitive article for identifying Silmarillion states.

Trotter: the non-US, non-UK statement is implying, but not stating, that this is the "Canadian" edition i.e. those 1st editions destined for the export market; sellers always state this kind of nonsense. To be honest, I'm really sick of reading these sorts of listings --when are dealers going to stop assuming that Clowes printed books plus unpriced DJs equal "first state". This is not necessarily the case. Look for the errors, by all means, but don't just look for Clowes and prices. Bah!

Did not all the 1st printings include "the much sought after large folding map at rear" and I think it is a UK edition?
