The BBC news website has just put this up:
"Tolkien festival to recreate Middle Earth in mid Wales"
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/10374622.stm

Apparently, "Mr Faith said Tolkien, as a boy, was fascinated with the Welsh place names he saw on a train journey from Birmingham to Aberystwyth."

Not to take anything away from Stephen Raw's Lord of the Rings maps as collector's items, offered at tolkienmaps.com, but it isn't correct to claim that since they first appeared in 1994 "all subsequent English editions have included them".

For the 50th anniversary edition in 2004, both HarperCollins and Houghton Mifflin reverted to the revised general Middle-earth map Christopher Tolkien drew for Unfinished Tales, the original large-scale map of Rohan, Gondor, and Mordor by Christopher (emended by Houghton Mifflin and later by HarperCollins), and Christopher's original map of a part of the Shire. In subsequent HarperCollins printings and editions, Christopher's maps have been retained. In subsequent Houghton Mifflin printings, Raw's maps are used, except for 'A Part of the Shire' which has remained Christopher's version. Ballantine Books included Raw's general map as of later printings of The Lord of the Rings during the run of the Jackson films, previously using redrawings by Shelly Shapiro.

I've been soooooo busy! But a hurried overview of the shelves came up with about 1000 books on/about Tolkien, and about the same in fanzines and fanzine-like-things.

Good topic!

Hi, my name is Jeremy, and I collect Tolkien... It's been two days since my last purchase.

I noticed this auction today

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JRR-Tolkien-Hob ... ks_UK&hash=item5888593a29

It is nice to be able to refer to such excellent resources as "J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography" by Wayne G. Hammond and Douglas Anderson and send them an email stating

"I noticed you listed this item as "leather bound", it is actually bound "in green imitation leather over boards" according to "J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography" by Wayne G. Hammond and Douglas Anderson Page 59, and is confirmed by looking at my copy.

Regards

Andrew"

I forgot to mention no dust wrapper
