The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien (First 1st Edition, Hardback 1977) with map


Welcome to my auction! You are bidding on a used, first edition of the Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien.

Condition: in Very good condition. It includes dust cover and attached map, not clipped, no inscription or book plate, just slight shelf wear and age related discolouring as would be expected of a book of this age. The map has become slightly detached where it was taped into the back cover and this has become slightly lose.

Edition: This is the Book Club Associates By George Allen & Unwin Ltd. First Edition 1977 so you could see it as the 'poor relation' first edition. But the differences are not that great; the George Allen & Unwin first editions pages were coloured blue along the top edge of the book and I believe that in addition to the map there was some other fold out diagram.
NB I have taken the liberty of using the George Allen & Unwin first edition ISBN number to make it more visible on eBay. There is no ISBN number for the Book Club edition I can find and I have only done to make it more visible it is not the  George Allen & Unwin edition but the Book Club Associates By George Allen & Unwin Ltd. First Edition. The photos below can be clicked on to give a super-sized image.
