Yes, Lewis's _Collected Letters_ contains only letters written by Lewis. There's one to Tolkien in Volume 2; the one where Lewis praises LotR - 'Uton herian holbytlas', etc. (Oct. 27, 1949). Another is to be found in Vol.3.

Reading Lewis's letters can never be said to be a waste; there's a lot of good stuff in there. And there's quite a few mentions of Tolkien throughout the three volumes. But I can't sift through the great mass to find snippets of what might be letters from T. to L. A better bet, for my money, is Scull and Hammond's two-volume 'JRR Tolkien: A Companion and Guide_ which has parts of many previously unpublished letters - from auction catalogues, for example - and also select extracts from Tolkien's diary. All in all - a must!

If you are just interested in Lewis/Tolkien letters then as I mentioned earlier just buy Volume Two.

HC did not ask me to return my copy when I initially complained, just said they would send me a replacement copy.

David Brawn does now want my copy back so that he can have a go at Martins for sending it out, though I'm thinking I'd like to keep it, as it is probably a unique copy, may send him photos of the book instead. I decided to send it back as I'm keen to see these Print On Demand books succeed.

It looks like only the Index has so far been ordered which is why this problem is not on other books, it would have affected any of the books.

I'm planning to buy the three volumes of Collected Letters in a near future. I'll post here to let you know of any clues of unpublished letters by J.R.R. Tolkien.
