I recently saw the new version of Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull's The Lord of The Rings A Reader's Companion in my local bookshops in England with this cover

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/im ... oks&qid=1209576659&sr=1-1

I have not had a chance to look at the book, but the physical size of the book looks a lot bigger than the previous paperback

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/im ... oks&qid=1209576700&sr=1-3

and the original Hardback.

Does anyone have this book and know if it has been changed at all, or is it just much bigger text?

Thanks in advance for any help as always.

I forgot to post this before but the sticker is light not dark blue. I think I must have a problem with colours, see my post on the jacket of The Silmarillion. This looks to be the same as the sticker on Khamul's Silmarillion (see scan)

I was looking at an Ebay Item J.R.R. TOLKIEN ~ COMPLETE UNWIN HYMAN CATALOGUE 1989/90 and was intrigued by the entry on this page http://www.mjtbooks.com/images/ebay/jrrtcat08.jpg

There are two maps in packs of six, does anyone know what these maps looked liked, and why were they sold in packs of six?

The truly terrible BBC programme called the 'One Show' had a piece on Tolkien in Birmingham on Thursday the 10th April.

You can still watch it on the BBC IPlayer if you live in the UK and to spare you watching the dross it starts 5 minutes and 50 seconds into the program (5 minutes long)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/page/ite ... rt=1&version_pid=b009s8hw

The interview is Giles Brandwith and Robert Blackman who wrote 'The Roots of Tolkien's Middle Earth' about Sarehole Mill, then are two Victorian Water Towers in Birmingham the inspiration for 'The Two Towers' and finally Mosely Bog, is it the Old Forest.

"Minor textual differences indicate that Variant 1 was printed before Variant 2."

The description above is quite correct, the difference is on one page in the two copies.

On Page 352, 6th line from the bottom, there is an entry for Ulmo

First Variant

Ulmo A Vala, one of the Aratar, called Lord of Waters and King of the Sea.

Second Variant

Ulmo A Vala, one of the Aratar, called Lord of Waters and King of the Sea.

Because the 'and' should not be in Italics and was corrected, the second variant must have been printed after the first.
