I found a beautiful version of The Sil at the library. It was a large book, hardcover, and it had the most beautiful pictures in it. I have never seen it in a bookstore.

I do not have the book and have never gone back to that library. I have never seen it in a bookstore. It was a rather large book...bigger than 8 x 10. Sorry, that's all I remember.

Hm... Dang. Lol. I thought you meant the library was selling it and you bought it. My mistake.

I might look online. It sounds really nice!

I also found the 30th anniversary edition. If you google that you come up with all sorts of cool images.

Sorry, but I have no recollection of the year of this book or anything else for that matter. All I remember it that it was at the library and as I paged through it, I found the pictures to be quite beautiful.

I have not been back to that particular library in years and my local library does not have it.

Ah, gotcha. No worries. :).

I know the 30th anaversary edition has a lot of art inside. *shrugs*

It is always cool to see the old books like that.

My library had the trilogy and the Hobbit...all bound in leather with moire front pages and a ribbon bookmark. The pages are edged in gold gilt. They are second editions and in really good shape. I was able to get all four at a sale for $25 the set. I love them....(even though they have the library stamp in assorted places)

That sounds really cool, too! I have never even seen books like that. All I have ever seen is the typical versions that come out in walmart or what not. I have always loved leather bound books and leather covers.

Out of curiosity, how many of you have a complete set of The History of Middle-earth (HOME)?

Not I. I used to have the Silmarilion but it was actually my grandmother's and it got re-claimed... :P I had the children of Hurin and the lost tales (or thought I did) but before I ever read them I was informed in no uncertain terms that those were my sister's books and they too were re-claimed. lol

Jax, your Mandalorian banner is really cool. Who's that on the left?

I have all of The History of Middle-earth except for Morgoth's Ring, The War of the Jewels, and The Peoples of Middle-earth. Kind of a bummer, too, because that lack has killed a few interesting discussions I've had with friends about Tolkien's writing, when they could discuss material from those books and I hadn't read them to respond. :/

Thanks. :). Honestly I am not sure whonitnis. Just a mandalorian picture I found on google search. Lol Loved the picture, though!


Yeah, I have had that a lot. There is a lot of material indon't know because I read so little. I know more about some things theough hearing it in those conversations. I have learned to, instead of talking aboutnit with them, ask them questions about it. Keeps conversation going and I learn at the same time. (So long as they don't mind my endless questions). :p
