Has anyone actually received any of the new POD HoME titles yet?

I received my HoME Index 1st Hb Ed. yesterday. Without going into any detail regarding uniformity or quality, I did notice that the copyright page has no mention of printing or publishing date i.e. '2010' is nowhere stated. Also, perhaps where the date should have been stated, it has a big typo, with nonsense and overlapping printed characters.

Anyone else got their copy? Copyright page typo present?

Thanks for the quick answer! I misinterpreted the page on tolkienbookshelf... I hope you all don't mind if I pose some newbie questions on the forum (I will likely have quite a few, since I have a growing interest in Tolkien bibliography...)

The Finn book is not by Tolkien - it's by R.A. Williams. This copy comes from Tolkien's library, and has his ownership signature.


This particular book also has some other hand-writing under Tolkien's signature, possibly to remind Tolkien about the quality of the book.
