Rare, eh! That's cool - I've got one of those. Must have bought it years ago; at Oxonmoot, most likely.

I agree with the sentiments about Fangorn - a fine gent X I mean, Ent!

Posted the Calendar of the Month for June at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

Chose to post this issue to honor the June birthday of Fangorn, a wonderful gentleman and giant in the Tolkien world.

Hope this finds all well and enjoying summer (even if it technically does not arrive for another two weeks!)

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Stu I'd be interested to hear a review from someone who has purchased a volume containing colour plates.


I bought a copy of the POD version of Sauron Defeated and am able to compare it with the first edition.

The dust jacket is a different colour to the original (the original cover is a burgundy, the new cover is brown and is lighter in colour than the cover of BOLT2). This is probably due to the new printing process.

The barcode on the rear of the cover is about twice as big on this copy. I don't understand why these books have barcodes on them as they are printed to order, and I can't see any purpose that they serve

The colour plates in the book are darker in the new book, but the quality of the reproduction is just as good as the original book.

The copyright information shows

This edition published by HarperCollinsPublishers 2010
1


I can't imagine that the number line would ever change with these books.

The most obvious difference between the books are that the binding of the book is now black (the original binding is the same colour as the dust jacket). This is the same as the POD Index and I am assuming that all the POD History of Middle-Earth books have black bindings.

Overall though I am very impressed with these books.

It may interest you to know that a "Champion of Champions" series of "Mastermind" is being filmed. We recently saw two episodes being filmed, one of which included my father in law (not on Tolkien, though). It might be screened around October. And no, we won't tell you who won!
