After sifting through over 10,000 letters in the A&U archive (over the last 14 months) I have finally published the latest article in The Early Publishing History of The Lord of the Rings series.

This one is called Printing and Binding The Lord of the Rings. It gives details of the number of copies of each impression that were printed and bound, and the number exported to the US for use by Houghton Mifflin. Details of galley proofs and page proofs are also included.

If anybody has questions, comments or suggestions for improvement please feel free to post here.

I would be especially interested if anybody has seen any of the proofs or advance copies - information on these is very thin on the ground. The photo used on the page is the best I could come up with. (It is the 1954 Page Proof of The Two Towers)

If you go into that section without being logged in, there is no hint as to how you go about posting an ad. (Or am I missing something?)

Perhaps a few words at the top of the page explaining what you need to do are required?
