Thanks for the citation!

Alas I didn't follow it up to find out who the printer was. My suspicion is that the jacket had been added, but it is impossible to be sure.

I have a copy of Variant 1 with an associated letter dated 22 August 1977, just over 3 weeks before publication. The Billing copies would have been in production by then, so I think it is almost certain that Clowes would have produced all the dummy copies.

I know (Deagol) - for heavens sake!
You got your message in before I typed my two lines...
Well seeing we all haven't go anything better to do on a Saturday night!

Tolkien on Fairy Stories and On Tolkien: Interviews, Reminiscences, and Other Essays should be interesting.

[oops - people posted while I was thinking...]

Not sure! What is coming out this year?

Happy New Year in any case wellinghall!
