The truly terrible BBC programme called the 'One Show' had a piece on Tolkien in Birmingham on Thursday the 10th April.

You can still watch it on the BBC IPlayer if you live in the UK and to spare you watching the dross it starts 5 minutes and 50 seconds into the program (5 minutes long)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/page/ite ... rt=1&version_pid=b009s8hw

The interview is Giles Brandwith and Robert Blackman who wrote 'The Roots of Tolkien's Middle Earth' about Sarehole Mill, then are two Victorian Water Towers in Birmingham the inspiration for 'The Two Towers' and finally Mosely Bog, is it the Old Forest.

The lack of a printed price does seem odd.
It is only a guess but A&U may have printed some unpriced jackets after the wrong copies were sent to the U.S.
At the moment I have 3rd and 8th Impression copies but nothing inbetween, so it is hard to check.
Does anybody else have copies of FG from the mid-1960s? It would interesting to know what the dj on the 1966 Impression looks like.

In the hardback British editions all the frontispieces are in colour with the exception of that in Volume 1.

The northern and southern portions of the first Silmarillion map in Volume 4 are also in colour (in the paperback edition too).

How many of the illustrations in HoME are in color? This one, and maybe one other I saw online somewhere, are the only ones I've seen that are not in b&w.
