I let Orcraider know that it was not the first printing and the eBay auction has been finished as unsold, which is the right thing to do and mirrors garm's positive comments on the seller.

It looks more like the Folcourt Press edition from 1969 by looking at the pictures on tolkienbooks.net (via archive.org)

Until Deagol fixes the site, you can use archive.org to see most of the information that used to be available. Archive.org can be a bit unfriendly, sometimes you need to refresh your browser to see the page, they also do not seem to have archived every entry so you may get some errors.

I still need some tutoring on the derivation of the new name!


According to the Index in the back of The Silmarillon, Urulóki is a Quenya word meaning fire-serpent or dragon, very apt for Jeremy's avatar. I assume that Urulókë is the plural of dragons.

The new version of www.tolkien.co.uk is now live, first impressions are that it is a big improvement on the old site.

They now seem to be selling all the UK books with international shipping, are doing a 3 for 2 deal even on Super Deluxe copies, and it is the only place to buy the print on demand books (History of Middle Earth hardbacks).
