Can you provide an image of your copy, SonOfDolf? I think I understand what you are saying, but there are two occurances of M & P on that line, so I am not 100% sure...

Also, here is another image that clearly shows the first rune (on the second line) as having been corrected:



The fourth line still appears to have the wrong rune. I found a better image (more accurate ) to show what I am talking about.



I have marked the rune in question. Note that it is not the same rune as the one in blue, but Easton's is appears to be the same. Can you confirm? it is hard to tell from just cover scans, perhaps the right side of the Easton rune is not vertically connected, which would make it correct.

And of course as mentioned the middle section is missing (intentionally).

Maybe we should mail Easton Press and they will correct it implying a second edition

I have dusted off a copy of the Hobbit and compared the runes on the map with those on the cover of Easton's. It looks like Easton press has it correct in the two spots you mention Urulókë.

The errors (or differences) are on the second line.

1. Between the "M" and the "P" is a dot on my map, and two vertical bars on the Easton Press cover

2. Also after the same "P" as mentioned ad 1. there is a rune missing on the Easton Press cover

Ah, that's not the one I meant. The one I mean occurs on the second line down on the cover of the book; fourth rune from the left. It's meant to look like a capital 'H', with two slanting crossbars, but the crossbars are missing, leaving two vertical lines resembling two capital 'I's.

It's just an odd thing...
