That is way too much for that book, yes. I have seen first printings go for much less than that, though obviously not shrinkwrapped.

Question I have is, how does the seller know the numberline on the copyright page, if the box is sealed in shrinkwrap?

The only way to know would be if the seller had owned it since new. I have a few shrinkwrapped books that I know are 1st impressions, just by virtue of when I bought them (and I have retained the receipts and kept them alongside).

I doubt I would purchase a shrinkwrapped book and trust it to be a specific impression, though (except for new prior to any reprinting).

eBay isn't the only place you can find over-priced copies of The Silmarillion ...
