Thanks, was really pleased to get it at that price.

Will be making an announcement in the next couple of months about my second copy, which I intend to sell.

Some pictures of the Super Deluxe Silmarillion, it appears to have been kept in its original box from new, and you can see the difference this has made to the spine when next to my other copy.

You can see the pencil £75 on the box, which was the price of the book when new.

I'm planning to sell my second copy in June and will post more pictures of it then.

Now that’s something quite special, especially coming with the box. Lovely find, Trotter.

For anyone interested in my existing Super Deluxe Silmarillion, it has already been sold to a private buyer, hopefully a few more of these items may come to the market over the next couple of years.
