They have not added a page yet for the Bibliography, as you can see from looking at the site from November 2006, before they added Artist & Illustrator and Roverandom pages

Assistance required with identifying first UK edition The Return of the King

Last week I acquired a first edition/printing of The Return of the King, with a fine condition and the dust jacket being even in VF condition after close inspection.

Yesterday I let an expert (Rene van Rossenberg, one of the major Tolkien collector's in the Netherlands, he owns a Tolkien store/museum) look at it and his conclusion was that it really is a first edition/printing, but the only thing that troubles him is the colour of the dust jacket. The jacket is made from an old and genuine material (smells 'old' too), but the colour is more light-grey than light-brown, altho the areas around the text are brown-faded.

The private collector I got the book from claims the dust jackets of all first editions (atleast LotR) were grey, while Rene van Rossenberg claims they were all brown.

So who tells the truth now? I hope someone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Sigi

At http://mysite.verizon.net/wghammond/addenda.html...

...did anyone ever copy the material within the J.R.R. Tolkien: A Descriptive Bibliography link, before it became unavailable? (or remember if it ever was available?) [Always been curious as to whether anyone cut and pasted it into a word file etc.]

Need some help!

I've always wanted a copy of the Easton Press' The Silmarillion; but eBay listings always have new/sealed copies, and nobody seems sure of the printing status.

Whats with the printing history of Easton Press publications? In particular when did they first print The Silmarillion?; when were subsequent printings?; and how are these differentiated on the copyright page (or otherwise)?

Any help much appreciated. Information on any of the Tolkien Easton Press publications would also be welcomed. Also, has anyone bought the CoH Easton Press yet? (and have any information/comments on it?)

Thanks,

Brian

Julian Bradfield (jcb@inf.ed.ac.uk) posted the following on rec.arts.books.tolkien (alt.fan.tolkien) newsgroup(s):

Those with an interest in the history of Tolkienian linguistics might like to know that, after more than a decade of unavailability, I am in the process of making back issues of Quettar available via lulu.com. The first volume is now ready.

Further information at http://www.quettar.org/

For those interested (or who missed the post) etc
