I used to buy every book that I could find, resulting in piles and piles of books. In the current financial climate I am trying to reduce down to certain authors that I want to keep. This will result in me clearing out a lot of my other signed and unsigned books and putting the money towards other enterprises. So watch out for a range of items coming up for sale!

This is a hard back edition of Tolkien's The Samarillion. The book is in very good condition, the pages are all clean, with a light splash mark at top when pages are closed. The cover is also in very good condition, with only tiny knock marks to along the top edge of the dust jacket. Very minor but I wish to be accurate. It has not been read, but listed as very good because of the knocks to the dust jacket. The map is still neatly folded at the back. It is published by Allen & Unwin Books in 1977. This has a plain top edging and no price on the inside of the dust jacket. A great book at a great price, happy bidding!

Please note that this is not a SIGNED edition.

I have been informed this is a more sought after edition, printed in Great Britain in 11 on 12 point imprint type by William Clowes & Sons, Limited London, Beccles and Colchester

Will post world wide!
