I noticed that Tom Shippey's "J.R.R. Tolkien Author of the Century" has been issued as a print-on-demand paperback on the 7th May 2010. I am surprised that they did not reissue the hardback version.

I recall there are some references to Tolkien outside of the two chapters given to his publishing history, too.


Almost every chapter apart from the first, has references to Tolkien, most have a lot of references. I think that a reprinting of this book should happen, because it is such a fantastic book.

In his covering note to us, he said: 'You will find much of this rather boring but I think you might like the two Tolkien chapters.' Actually it's all very interesting.


I agree, in fact quite a bit of the information in the two chapters on Tolkien has been printed elsewhere but the whole book is really interesting, though I have not seen this wonderful quote from Tolkien before in the Publishing Tolkien chapters, that he was astonished that Pauline Baynes "should not realise that a dragon would always face out from its cave rather than lie with its tail near the entrance". Surely everyone knows this

I'm going to reopen this old post based on remy's comments and the fact that David Miller now posts on the forum based on comments in this post

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... =ASC&type=&mode=0&start=0

Three questions.

1 - It looks like the 50 copies were not all lost, as garm appears to own a copy and David may also have a copy.

2 - Are we any further in establishing publishing order for these items than the last post in September 2008?

3 - Where did the 12 marbled boards copies come from?

It would be nice to get some answers but I think Khamul's comment is very apt in this case.

The printing numbers & history regarding Rayner's The Making of the Lord of the Rings produced by Wim is also quite complicated. I'm not sure if Wim can quite remember!

remy is quite correct, there were three impressions of the Fowler Hobbit book, details below.
