One paragraph, so many mistakes, though they did manage to work out the year the 1st World War started

Looks like a film to avoid at all costs.

"The film — featuring a script by Angus Fletcher, based on six years of interviews and archival research — will chart the tumultuous events that inspired him to pen Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies: when war broke out in 1914, disrupting his Oxford life with his wife Edith Bratt, Tolkien embarked on four years of battle, hardship, and new friendships, which served to shape his imagination and start him on the path to Middle Earth."

I think it is do with where on the map it is affixed to the back of the book, but I would also like to know.

I got my copy of the Lay of Aotrou and Itroun today, not a bad book, but did find it strange that the book has five plates, and two are the same, a colour version and a black and white version of the same manuscript page.

I think Amazon UK still has some copies, if you want to try there.


It looks like Amazon are running out of copies of the facsimile Hobbit, as the price has gone back to RRP (£25) for amazon.co.uk.

Another shiny one has arrived...


Can you give us some feedback on the book?

How many pages in total are the text of The Lay of Aotrou & Itroun and how many are commentary?

I am not that affected about this but other forum members are, where was it printed and what are your views on the printing quality?
