The ditched copy in Unfinished Tales is my favourite map, even if it has been drawn by Christopher

Bah. I preferred the old maps, even if CT isn't a gifted artist. Frankly, I don't like change and the old ones were fine by me when I was a young 'un.

Now Trotter, you aren't being very generous to her, are you? She was clearly talking in *Geologic terms* when she stated "this edition didn't last very long". Clearly.

"HarperCollins is starting its celebrations for the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit ahead of time, with the publication of a collection of Tolkien's artwork and a 'cute' pocket-sized edition of the novel at the end of this month."

They were originally added as a fold out end paper probably four pages wide by two or three pages in height and were originally produced in black and red. Clearly this edition did not last long. As the books became increasingly popular and printing techniques became more advanced, the previously expensive method of attaching the maps to the back of edition was ditched.


Clearly indeed this edition did not last long (at least 35 years from 1954 to 1988 or 1989) as three volume hardbacks.
