Hi Wellinghall,

For me there are two books that stand out as must haves:

On Tolkien: Interviews, Reminiscences, and Other Essays by Douglas Anderson and Marjorie Burns
and
Tolkien on Fairy-Stories by Verlyn Fleiger and Douglas Anderson.

Both are coming out in the later half of the year, so I would be interested in what others are looking forward to, especially in the first half of the year.

Well, Holford ( ) states the following:

___________________________________________________________

Printed by Clowes & Sons.

Pre-publication dummy copy. According to a letter seen with one copy, these were distributed to booksellers to solicit pre-publication orders.

Dark blue cloth binding, with blue and white striped headband, dyed blue top edge and dark blue coloured dustwrapper.

Three variants have been seen:

1) With the pages printed up to page 32
2) With the pages printed up to page 35
3) With these pages blank

The copy of Variant 3 seen lacked a dustwrapper.

Most copies come in the unpriced export jacket, but one copy of the 32 page variant has been seen in a priced domestic dustwrapper. Whether this was as issued is uncertain.

___________________________________________________________

So I guess this is pretty much all thats been seen. The priced variant sounds unlikely if it was Clowes (as their jackets were unpriced).

Deagol!? Was the priced copy a Billing copy? Or have all dummy copies (seen) been Clowes 1rst impressions?

As an added point. The presence of only Clowes pre-publication copies (assuming this is the case) adds weight to the argument that Clowes was the main printer employed & that these copies were in production (or in this case pre-production) first.

Hi folks - Happy New Year to you all

I'm getting confused about which variants of the blank / dummy Silmarillions there are - any advice?

Thanks

Hi Tom -

A bit off topic for this thread, however . . .

Re the game that you noted in a previous post, you might find it here:

http://www.freewebs.com/tolkienboardgamecollecting/index.htm

As far as I know, this is the Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Games!
