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!

Too kind!!

Do your Clowes Export copies display the other features of the 2 variants?

1) Dark blue cloth binding, with blue and white striped headband and dyed blue top edge.

2) Dark blue textured paper binding, no headband and no dye to top edge.

Alas, I only have one Clowes copy ... but I'd love to acquire any variants that exist!

I have a fairly comprehensive collection of all the Impressions that exist (one doesn't) and Publishers of the GA&U Silmarillion from 1977.

Deagol states on his wonderful (forgot to say fantastic) website http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62120 that there is a difference in colour on the dust jackets of the first export edition.

"The difference in colour between the two dustwrapper variants is subtle, but is noticeable when the two are placed next to each other."

I can't see this at all, all my copies look identical in colour, all 8 of them.

So if you have copies of the first Export Edition (printed by Clowes), can you confirm this statement, as I much I'd like to, I can't.

Could be. Hilary's side of the family lives in the Evesham area.
