Christopher Tolkien has been interviewed in a very interesting Article on his father and the new book, but it also covers the "myth of the wild boar", as the last point.

I got my Deluxe Edition today and it does not really look like Stu's Picture.

In fact it is very similiar to the other Deluxe Editions, The Tolkien Logo is the same as on on The Hobbit, LOTR, Children of Hurin, etc. (i.e. not circled), there is no underline between J.R.R. Tolkien and "The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun".

The colour of the binding is also the same as the slipcase in the picture, not the darker book colour.

Also, according to Amazon, the deluxe (or special as it also seems to be called) edition will contain a facsimile page of Tolkien's original manuscript. The regular edition will not contain this.


The regular edition does contain this page

The Tolkien Estate have made a slight update to their website. A page has been added for the Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun.


website link

and if you follow the 'website' link; there is a note on what the website will contain...including "some hitherto unpublished maps, annotated by the author, and a selection of calligraphy".

Yes, the photo was in an email I received from HC exclaiming,

"We are extending the pre-order period until 20th May to allow you more time to reserve your copy of this historic edition of Tolkien's undiscovered masterpiece."

Wow! They have been so generous in affording me this extra time to pre-order! How can I thank them enough? Oh, that's how! By sending them 250GBP per book. I'll take two for that price!

(That sad thing, beneath my sarcasm, is that I had already pre-ordered two copies. )
