Found this book on Amazon The Legend of a Hero Beowulf Illustrated by John Howe Retold by Nicky Raven.

I bought the slipcased version and the illustrations from John are fantastic as always and very reminiscent of his Tolkien work.

The Professor gets a brief mention at the end in John's notes on the book.

I had a copy of the US Silmarillion with review slip (it has since found another home, but I kept a photocopy of the review letter for research purposes.)

I have also seen a lot of review copies for the US HOME series. There are also a couple of first edition LOTR review copies floating around (in the Marquette collection, etc.) that are essentially galleys. I don't recall seeing a copy of the review letter with them, but I will go back and check what I have tucked away. I haven't seen anything for the Hobbit.

Does anyone else have any 'review' copies of Tolkien books?

Although interested in hearing about the earlier years of publishing (i.e. when Tolkien was alive), I'm particularly looking to see if anyone else has stumbled across any review 'slips' which came with otherwise normal books.

I just bought a copy of The Silmarillion (interestingly a Billing copy), which has a GA&U slip laid in. It is not specifically for Tolkien. It begins We have pleasure in sending the accompanying book for review; and has four blank areas where the title, author, price, and publication date can be (in this case) typed in. It adds Please ensure no review appears before the publication date.

Anyone seen anything similar? (perhaps in UT). Were these 'slips' used in any pre-Silmarillion Tolkien titles?

It had already been listed at £699; no bidders. This is it re-listed. One bidder this time though...
