I didn't even try. I figured there was a 100% chance of there being other people prepared to may more than me. I suspect I will never have one of these!

Well said

I wonder if "Tolkien's Corrigan Poems" is simply a commentary by VF on various drafts of the Lay or if Tolkien wrote multiple poems that include reference to Corrigan (I'm not aware that he did)?

At the end of the day, it is a short poem, so the commentary giving context and explanation shouldn't really be a hundred pages long, unless intended to pad. Verbosity is not a virtue, and neither - necessarily - is squeezing in every draft.

Amazon UK has it listed as a hardback for pre-order; in case there was still any debate about format:
