    They aren't the same. The Book of Lost Tales I and II are an earlier version of the Silmarillion (at least that's what I recall; I haven't read the books for a long, long while.) Unfinished Tales cover some of the same material as the Sil and BoLT, but also have information that can't be found in other books. :)

    And that reminds me, I need to buy a copy of Morgoth's Ring and the War of the Jewels soon...
