" 'The Silmarillion' is the central stock of J. R. R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work that he could not publish in his lifetime because it grews with him. Its origins stretch back sixty years, long before 'The Hobbit', which was independently conceived but was caught up int what he called the 'branching acquisitive theme' from which finally emerged 'The Lord of the Rings'.
'The Silmarillion', though published last and posthumously, has the primacy, both in terms of the author's life and in terms of his content. It is the story of the First Age in Tolkien's world, the ancient drama to which characters in 'The Lord of the Rings' look back, and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part" (from the front flap)
Book is very good+ with slightly fading to blue top edge of text block and to the top edges of the boards. Otherwise clean and bright with no inscriptions and no stamps.
Dustwrapper is near fine with minor signs of usage to the edges.
