No they are not, it looks like John Benjamin Tolkien (J.R.R. Tolkien's grandfather) was Henry's older brother, though nice to see this confirmed if anyone can.

It is called The Hobbit dustjacket 1937 (MS Tolkien 32), by the Bodleian Library. The MS Tolkien 32 describes the location in the library where the original copy is stored of the artwork, this copy was used by the printers to create the published dustjacket.

I am not aware that Tolkien named this artwork but the dustjacket also contained text in the runes that describe the contents of the book.

Saw this on Reddit. I hadn't really considered that errors would still be getting introduced. I expect the core text is fairly safe and unmucked about with by printers, these days.

I am struggling with a defence on this one, but as a description of an illustration it is not part of the core text, which has safeguards hopefully to stop changes like this happening.

Why it was changed is quite a mystery as it was correct in the first place?

I have informed HarperCollins of the error and hope it is rectified as soon as possible, they have responded and they are aware of the issue and investigating how it happened!

Step though the wardrobe on Great Lives as CS Lewis - creator of the Narnia Chronicles - is this week's choice. Lewis was a fascinating and extremely complicated man. Born in Northern Ireland, his mother died when he was a child, and his university career interrupted so he could go off and fight in the Great War. Historian Suzannah Lipscomb, who tweets as sixteenth century girl, says she finds his writings deeply moving and that they have influenced her faith. Matthew Parris is less convinced by the religious influence in his work. Malcolm Guite, contributer to the Cambridge Companion to CS Lewis, sits firmly on Suzannah Lipscomb's side.
