All,

Please help with this task if you can, it would be fantastic to get a better textual accuracy in the Appendices?

If you get a chance please see if you can find errors in the published editions of the Appendices.

A lot of errors may have been introduced, from the first edition of the Lord of the Rings, to the second edition and later changes.

In particular if you have a first edition Return of the King then please compare the Appendices with your latest edition, and please do so as well if you have a second edition.

If you find any differences, then please post them in this thread.

Two issues have already been found in the Tale of Years, but I think a lot more may be out there.

Can you also check, before posting that the issue you have found has not already been dealt with in the Reader's Companion or on the on-line Addenda and Corrigenda from Wayne and Christina?

Thanks, and looking forward to fixing mistakes in the Appendices.

Trotter

Very Sorry, but I do not think you can find this item.

The only way to get this, is if the seller gives a photo of the cover of the book that they are selling, so try that on ebay?

Amazingly the item now seems to have an even worse effort at a Fake signature.

It is the same seller, faking signatures, they appear to be based in the UK, so I will ask the Arts and Antiques Squad to have a look at this.

Did Tolkien write 'juvenile trash'?

Obviously the answer is No.

Dominic Sandbrook has a new book called The Great British Dream Factory published by Allen Lane, in which he discusses this question.

I noticed this post on the Onering.net

http://newboards.theonering.net/forum ... collapsed;guest=160974966

My question is are these all the matching paperbacks from HarperCollins?

The paperbacks that fit this "set", I think are

The Silmarillion
The Children of Hurin
The Hobbit
The Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King
Unfinished Tales
The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrun
Tales from the Perilous Realm (not in photo)
Letters from Father Christmas (not in photo)

Have I missed any matching paperbacks?
