Trotter - Can you see the colour difference between these images?

I checked my copies of the two Clowes Variants and there is indeed a difference in colour between the dustjackets (I would say, a more than subtle difference - it is quite noticeable).

Variant 1 (Top Stain, Headband, Cloth Boards) has a deep Navy Coloured Dustjacket.

Variant 2 (No Top Stain, No Headband, Paper Over Boards) has a lighter Navy Coloured Dustjacket with a Slight Purple tinge to it.

The Colour of the Variant 2 Dustjacket also matches that of the Billings Printing.

There is no fading to any of the dustjackets.

Added a new calendar to the catalog (and my collection): the Pocket (France) "Calendrier 2008 Collector." It has a single Tolkien-related illustration within: "The Fellowship of the Ring" by John Howe. It was a bonus for purchasing Pocket books at Christmas.

The Shaping of Middle-earth. 1988. First Paperback EditionThe latest update at TolkienBooks.net is largely concerned with the History of Middle-earth section of the site. While there are no new editions, all entries have been updated to the new style and format and details of the latest paperback impressions added.

A new page has been added to the Articles section to compliment this update to the bibliography. A Guide to the Contents of The History of Middle-earth gives details of the contents of each volume in the series. Each entry begins with a transcription of the tengwar inscription present on the title page and is followed by a list of the contents, starting with the frontispiece if present, all the way through to the Index. The content of each chapter is indicated by the title, and any additional items of interest are listed afterwards.

The Tolkien Calendars article has been amended. The changes are restricted to the table showing when you can re-use your old calendars - somehow a couple of errors had crept in there. This year you can re-use the 1980 Bakshi Film Calendar which is only usable once every 28 years!
