The Silmarillion is a collection of J. R. R. Tolkien's mythopoeic works, edited and published posthumously by his son Christopher Tolkien in 1977, with assistance from Guy Gavriel Kay, who later became a noted fantasy writer. The Silmarillion, along with J. R. R. Tolkien's other works, forms a comprehensive, yet incomplete, narrative that describes the universe of Middle-earth within which The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings take place.

The Silmarillion

TOLKIEN, J. R. R.; TOLKIEN, Christopher (editor)

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company. Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket. 1977. Hardcover. 0395257301 . Stated first printing, first American edition on copyright page. This is the first state version, but later in the print run with damaged lines of text on page 229; list of author's works incorrectly lists 'Father Giles of Ham' (instead of the correct 'Farmer'). In green full cloth covers with decorations & titling stamped in gilt and silver on cover & spine; publisher's red topstain. Large fold-out map of Beleriand at rear of volume. Jacket bears drawing by the author on the front, and Roger Hill photo of the author on the back; orig. $10.95 flap price intact. --- 'The Silmarillion' was a life-long Tolkien project, but wasn't published until after his death, after being edited and organized by his son, Christopher Tolkien. It is perhaps the author's most imaginative work, taking the reader along as he explored his imagined ancient world. --- A clean, firm, bright copy but with a slight bit of rubbing to cover edges, along with a very faint stain to front fore-edge. Touching gift inscription on half title pg. Jacket edges with some chafing and crumpling, particularly at spine ends; otherwise in nice shape and in removable archival mylar protector.; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 365 pages .

A true FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (statement, full number line, with "Father Giles'' pg. 352 in italics, pg. 229 unbroken type, & all other required points, & there are many on this book!

Tolkien, J.R.R.; Tolkien, Christopher (Editor)

London: George Allen & Unwin [0-04-823139-8] 1977, 1st Domestic Edition, 1st Impression, 1st State. (hardcover) 365p. Very good in very good dust jacket. 8vo. Blue cloth boards; lettering in gold to spine, emblem in gold at head. Top edge coloured black; colouring slightly faded. Binding a touch loose from reading. White dust jacket flaps age-toned, as common. Jacket with edgewear; NOT price-clipped, showing 4.95. Jacket appearance greatly improved in protective mylar. Faint erasure of previous bookseller's price crossed out at top corner of ffep. Gift inscription in ink to ffep, dated Christmas 1977. Slight indentation from a previously removed paper-clip at head of pp.308-311. Else internally bright and clean. Illustrated with an in-text map of "The Realms of the Noldor and the Sindar" and a folding map of "Beleriand and the Lands of the North" tipped to final leaf. Genealogical trees. This is the FIRST STATE of the 1st Domestic Edition / 1st Impression. Although the binding first appears to match the earlier Export Edition, the Domestic Edition lacks a head-band and the coloured top-edge is darker. The dust jacket of the 1st Domestic Edition is dark purple, as opposed to the midnight blue jacket of the Export Edition (the difference in jacket colour is scarcely noticeable at first glance; only apparent upon close inspection). Dust jacket with 4.95 on the front flap. Copyright page with no other impressions listed; "First published in 1977." Printed by offset lithography by Billing & Sons Ltd. The First State of the 1st/1st Domestic Edition has the same typographical errors as the Export Edition: there is NO PERIOD following "Feonar" on L.4 on p.330; "and" IS italicized on L.39 on p.352. These typographical errors are corrected in the second state of the first impression. The in-text map of "The Realms of the Noldor and the Sindar" is facing p.120, whereas the map faces p.121 in the First Export Edition. Hammon and Anderson A15b. Barron (Fantasy Literature) 251; Currey (Modern Science Fiction) 4597; Currey (Science Fiction) p.477 (2).
