It looks like Amazon are hedging their bets on the delivery date for the facsimile Hobbit.

Delivery estimate: 21 Oct 2011 - 9 Sep 2013

The ditched copy in Unfinished Tales is my favourite map, even if it has been drawn by Christopher

They were originally added as a fold out end paper probably four pages wide by two or three pages in height and were originally produced in black and red. Clearly this edition did not last long. As the books became increasingly popular and printing techniques became more advanced, the previously expensive method of attaching the maps to the back of edition was ditched.


Clearly indeed this edition did not last long (at least 35 years from 1954 to 1988 or 1989) as three volume hardbacks.

He has posted before on this forum, as Mark Faith, he organized a Tolkien festival in Wales last year that you may have read about.

I agree this item is at top end that anyone would pay i.e. not priced for a quick sale (£50 is still a good price for this excellent book)

I beat Khamul to it, and changed the title

I'll put in a plug for another site that I am member of, as that is a much better site for this type of question, we stick here to what the site is renowned for, collecting Tolkien

This question comes up a lot on the plaza and there are lots of posts about what other fantasy writers people like, and here is an example.

http://www.lotrplaza.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=242076

My answer to the question though is that I only really like one fantasy author's books, and I will let you guess who that is? (that last comment makes me think of the really hard questions on TV phone-ins, like my favourite, What colour is an orange?)
