Spent some time last night cleaning up under the hood. More work to be done (mostly because some changes had unexpected consequences so I held off on doing them) but the website should load a lot faster now.

Initial loads (for new visitors) should have gone down about half (for me, from 15 seconds to 8 seconds) and the same for subsequent visitors (again for me, 8 seconds to about four). Your mileage will vary because speed depends on where you are in the world, but hopefully this makes the site more usable in general.

One of the side effects I haven't come up with a perfect answer for is removal of some widgets I like but that are really slow - the Google Translate was itself about a second of latency, and the Twitter feed widget was about three seconds of latency by itself! These should be the only visible results of the tweaking though, the rest is behind the scenes improvements.

I let Orcraider know that it was not the first printing and the eBay auction has been finished as unsold, which is the right thing to do and mirrors garm's positive comments on the seller.

I agree that the vendor is very good and reliable; no problem there. But I think he's mistaken this time - as Trotter says, it looks more like the Folcourt Press edition. it's an easy mistake to make.

According to Hammond there were also editions by Norwood Editions (1975) and Arden Library (1978). There was also a typed hand-out which was given to those who attended the lecture; I've only ever seen one of these.

It looks more like the Folcourt Press edition from 1969 by looking at the pictures on tolkienbooks.net (via archive.org)

Until Deagol fixes the site, you can use archive.org to see most of the information that used to be available. Archive.org can be a bit unfriendly, sometimes you need to refresh your browser to see the page, they also do not seem to have archived every entry so you may get some errors.
