I recently bought (on ebay) a copy of JRR Tolkien Author of the Century signed by Tom Shippey. The main reason I bought it, even though it was a second impression was that it also has, throughout, suggested amendments by Tom Shippey.

Whether these were just idle jottings or have been incorporated in later impressions, I don’t know.

There is nothing startling in the changes and the errors would have been spotted by many fans anyway but I thought it might be interesting to let other members know what Mr Shippey’s notes were and ask if anyone knows if later impressions remain unchanged.

page vi - two names to be added to the Acknowledgements

page 25, line 26 – “Brill” corrected to “Bree”
page 31, line 28 – “eigi einhamr” the “a” is crossed out but the margin note suggests to insert “a” underlined (not sure what is intended myself)

My copy of the 2011 HarperCollins calendar, with thirteen illustrations and an essay by Cor Blok, arrived yesterday (Saturday 3 July) from Amazon. It was waiting for me when I got home from work, and I lost no time in opening it and delighting in it!

And now I'm at work again
