D’ARTAGNAN BOOKS

 

This is a first edition in good condition.  It was published by George Allen & Unwin in 1977.  This edition has no coloured edging to top of the pages, and the map is present.

This 'Export Edition' preceded the first edition.  It was printed by William Clowes & Sons and has no price to the DJ.  The print errors are all present e.g. Page 352 'Lord of Waters' and 'King of the Sea' are in italics.

 

'The Silmarillion is the central stock of J R R Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work that he could not publish in his lfetime because it grew with him.'

 

This is a 1st Edition / 1st Printing.

 

Condition:

Book - Very Good - rubbing/bumping to the corners and edges, some marking and discolouration/foxing to the page edges (mainly the top edge), a bump and some creasing to the top page corners, soft even tanning to the pages and there is a previous owner's bookplate inside.

Dust Jacket - Good - rubbing/bumping/wear to the corners, edges and covers, a couple of small tears, two tape repairs to the reverse and slight marking, creasing and fading.

The DJ is not price clipped, though there is no price evident.

The DJ is in a protective plastic sleeve (non-adhesive).
