The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This copy is the 1st printing of the 1st UK Edition published in 1977 by Allen & Unwin. This is the UK Export Edition, bound by William Clowes & Sons Ltd, with no price on the unclipped dustjacket. The book is in Near Fine condition, with no previous owners name, no other writing or marks. No bumped corners noted, nor any stains to the blue cloth, gilt bright and shiny. The edges of the textblock are lightly soiled, with the top stain clean and unfaded. A very clean and bright dustjacket, with no fading or tanning. Only the most minor of rubbing to the edges, a tiny bit of color loss along the bottom edge of the spine area, the dustjacket is in Near Fine condition. A wonderful copy of J.R.R. Tolkien's lifetime work containing his account of the mythology of Middle-earth, edited by his son, Christopher Tolkien. The map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North appears as a fold-out map, and is printed in black and red, no tears or marks noted, very clean and bright. Noted points or error's: Page 330 line 4 shows no period after Feanor. Page 352 line 39 has an italicized "and" in 'Lord of Waters and King of the Sea'. Making this the First State of the First Impression. An highly collectable copy, housed in a custom black leather slipcase, gilt stamped with the JRRT Monogram, and Tolkien's Heraldic device representing Luthien Tinuviel stamped on the covers of the black leather. Any questions, please feel free to ask. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
