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?

BH

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.

This is not a single book, but two separate items. 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.

The second item is an offprint of Tolkien's Middle English Lexicography, taken from the Review of English Studies Volume 1, 1925. The article doesn't appear in the Finn book.
