HC did not ask me to return my copy when I initially complained, just said they would send me a replacement copy.

David Brawn does now want my copy back so that he can have a go at Martins for sending it out, though I'm thinking I'd like to keep it, as it is probably a unique copy, may send him photos of the book instead. I decided to send it back as I'm keen to see these Print On Demand books succeed.

It looks like only the Index has so far been ordered which is why this problem is not on other books, it would have affected any of the books.

Got my copy today with no ISBN and the wrong font used for HarperCollins and the date , according to David Brawn at HC, they have stopped sending out Print-on-Demand books until the issue is resolved, looks like the printers sent them out to early before proof copies were sent to HC.

David is sending me another copy after an email of complaint, which is just as well, because my copy was bound upside down.

I have the "Letters of C.S. Lewis" edited by W.H.Lewis first printed in 1966 by Bles.

This is not the same book that you mention, but this book has a couple of problems that relate to your enquiry. It has no index, so it is difficult to find all Tolkien references and it also appears to not have a single letter addressed directly to Tolkien.

The "Collected Letters" edited by Walter Hooper are in three volumes and it looks like volume two may contain some letters sent to Tolkien.

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.
