I have decided I am going to keep mine. If only 30 dispatched and maybe a few returned they may be worth something more than £40 paid in 20 or so years! Can live in hope

It would be interesting to see a picture of the Index page with the typo, if someone could post one.


Very remiss not to provide any pictures, here are one of the dust jacket, one showing my unusual binding and one showing the typos. There are two typos, HarperCollins and the date (2010) appear in a very strange font, and they also forgot to include the full ISBN, just left the end blank.

We have not yet tried to order the Index or any of the other HOME print-on-demand titles, waiting to see how this all shakes out.

By 'unpublished letters' we assume is meant, not published in Letters. There are still many Tolkien letters which have never appeared in print, in whole or in part – more than we can know, as we've not had access to the preserved Tolkien family correspondence; and then there are many letters which have appeared only in part, e.g. in auction or manuscript dealers' catalogues, which would come under Morgan's heading of 'hard-to-find'. As Garm very kindly says, we included parts of many previously unpublished letters in our Companion and Guide, over a hundred of them, and also quoted from extracts previously published in catalogues or elsewhere. The copyright statement at the back of either volume points to sources, supported by our bibliography of works consulted. Wayne's Descriptive Bibliography, Section Dii, is also a useful list of separately published letters or extracts up to mid-1992.

There are also letters recorded in the addenda and corrigenda to the Companion and Guide, at this site.

Hmm, it's hard to know whether it is best to keep the faulty copy or to get a replacement. I'm tempted to keep the faulty one as the typo distinguishes these as being the only kind of "first print" that this book will ever have (and we know there are only 30 of them). What is everyone else planning to do (keep or return?).
