Oh, hang on; here's another - a £100 ticket being offered for £110. Can anyone tell me why anyone would pay over the face value of a ticket? It's not as if this is a 'ticket tout' operation - this is the event organiser offering these over-priced articles for sale!

- is Mr Faith really, actually offering a ticket with a face value of £260 for £285?

Thanks to both of you! Indeed, I've never quite understood the assertion that this is the most luxurious edition, but have read it numerous times and felt it was worth mentioning.

Trotter, I will add that information to the blog- thanks for that.

bruffyboy wrote on his blog. What you won't read in the blurb, but can't help but feel, is that there are surely STILL a whole bunch of errors in this release, but it's nice to know you have the most definitive edition on the market.


Wayne & Christina have a website containing Addenda and Corrigenda to Our Writings including the 50th Anniversary Edition of The Lord of the Rings detailing changes to this edition, some of which were corrected in the 2005 printings.
