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?
Tolkien Studies (5) is always good to look out for...

Happy New Year in any case wellinghall!

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.
