I have to admit to being disappointed with the size of the maps in the 50th Anniversary Edition and in particular the fold out map in the rear of the book as it is not the same as the original maps in the pre 1980's three volume books.

I would have liked to have the original sized bigger fold out maps in a Deluxe Edition.

I'd really like to see HarperCollins putting back the wonderful fold out large maps that were in the original books in any later printings of this book or any future Deluxe or Super Deluxe LOTR.

As I only have a limited space for books, I only have about 500 Tolkien Books, so I have had to go for quality rather than quantity, something that I'm sure that a lot of other board members have also done

I agree the whole Wales line is simply Mark with his business hat on, rather than his collector hat; the kind of antics I would have thought he would have objected to, judging by some of his other comments. That said, some of what Mark says is true enough. Unfortunately for him though, as a book seller, he becomes part of the very problem he criticizes. Upon close examination, many of the books he sells are neither rare nor scarce; & are are not, in my opinion, 'worth' what he is charging for them.

I also dislike all this 'true' collector rubbish. In the field of Tolkien collecting, bargains are few and far between; & the ony hope most collectors have of acquiring anything like a rarity are on sites like eBay --where many sellers are unaware of what they are selling. Otherwise everything is expensive & overpriced. You can be as knowledgeable as you like, you ain't going to get anything 'rare' without hard cold cash.

He said: "It wasn't an accident that I chose this part of Wales for the festival."

As I said earlier - I fancy that if Mr faith had chosen to settle in Scotland (or anywhere else in the British Isles) then that place -wherever it might be - would suddenly sprout a formerly unknown connection to Tolkien.

And, as I also noted; this venue was not Mr Faith's first choice; accident or not.

(some folk just enjoy making things up about Tolkien, esp. when there's money to be made.)
