Not sure how rare these are or what a good asking price is...

Seems like a decent price for an Uncorrected Proof of The Silmarillion (Houghton Mifflin): eBay Item #162996045243

Interesting - there's at least one typo visible - "The History of the Silmaris" in the third picture (attached here). I wonder what else was caught in the proof stage, as this did not make it into the first edition. The page ordering visible is different from the first US edition, as well.
