Item specifics

Author: J R R Tolkien Special Attributes: 1st Edition
Format: Hardback w/Jacket Subject: Fiction
Fiction Subject: Fantasy Fiction Type: Novels
Language: English Printing Year: 1977



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.


'Beginning with the Music of the Ainur, The Silmarillion tells a tale of the Elder Days, when Elves and Men became estranged by the Dark Lord Morgoth's lust for the Silmarils, pure and powerful magic jewels.  Even the love between a human warrior and the daughter of the Elven king cannot defeat Morgoth, but the War of Wrath finally brings down the Dark Lord.  Peace reigns until the evil Sauron recovers the Rings of Power and sets the stage for the events told in the Lord of the Rings.'


This is a 1st Edition / 1st Printing.


Book - Very Good - rubbing/bumping/wear to the corners and edges, a faint indentation/crease to the front cover, slight marking and a v.slight knock to the page edges, slight darkening to the top page edges and soft even tanning to the pages.

Dust Jacket - Average - rubbing/bumping/wear to the corners and edges, a small tear and some creasing, marking, fading and discolouration.
