"Acquired exclusive rights" --what is booktrade on about? Who else was going to publish tie-in editions? It was either HarperCollins or no one. And, since we know that HC had commercial interests in the LR films (beyond selling film-cover books), is it any wonder they are similarly on board with The Hobbit --as they presumably have a cut in the film's profit (as with LR). Makes sense to promote it.

Just keep slumming it on eBay. They pop up here & there --are you particularly particular (!) about getting it in the first impression that it made an appearance (10th impression according to TolkienBooks)? I'd imagine it's as annoying to get hold of as the Dealerfield (2000) and Book People/Ted Smart (2001) editions --sellers just aren't that clear what they have; it's not that they're aren't copies out there. (What Silmarillion are you saying it matches by the way? --the 2004 incarnation I assume).

Rare you say?

Rare ** 1st Edition J.R.R. Tolkien ** The Silmarillion, 2nd Impression

...oh, a second impression --that doesn't sound very collectable, or rare...

One of a few books from the limited 2nd only print run of the very first edition.


Hmmm... I'm pretty sure this is incorrect...
