I would have thought the "rectangular white bits with the words" on should have got a mention, though some people here collect Silmarillion's without the words.

I'm sure a lot of visitors to the site already know these terms but just in case.

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.
