"Together with eight letters to Rayner Unwin, six typed from Dahl and signed in ink, all warm in tone and principally dealing with publication of his books, including an exceptional letter praising his newly discovered illustrator Quentin Blake and suggesting he illustrates some of his Unwin editions, approval of Unwin’s ‘gentlemanly’ business conduct and requests for copies to be sent to him from the publisher for charity signings. He also refers to the unfinished ‘Charlie’ sequel, ‘Charlie in the White House’, but suggests he had no plans to complete it; one handwritten letter is from the UK illustrator of Dahl’s early books, Faith Jaques, chasing royalty payments, and one typed and annotated and signed in ink from Liccy, Dahl’s widow, shortly after his death. Also included is the printed tribute by Peter Mayer, then CEO of Penguin, delivered at Dahl’s funeral in Great Missenden.
A fantastic publisher’s collection of one of their most successful authors, the letters revealing a close and mutually appreciative working relationship.

Thanks for the recommendations, Mark has the dust-jackets that I want, so I will get them from him.

I am looking for companies that can produce exceptional facsimile dust jackets for Tolkien books.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I checked the 50th Fellowship of the Ring from the box set, with the newly arrived 60th Fellowship of the Ring (6th printing) against the changes listed by Wayne and Christina (http://www.hammondandscull.com/addenda/rings.html).

The 6th printing incorporates all the changes on the pages, that I checked, i.e. the change below is in the new copy

"p. 50, Ring inscription: As noted in The Lord of the Rings: A Reader’s Companion, the inscription reproduced in 2004 printings of the 50th anniversary edition is incorrect, taken from earlier, rejected lettering by Tolkien."

However, I have just checked Wayne & Christina's Note on the text in the Fellowship of the Ring, and this seems to be different to the note in the one volume 60th anniversary edition.

6th impression Fellowship of the Ring

Note on the 50th Anniversary Edition and dated May 2004

60th Anniversary One volume edition

Note on the revised text and dated January 2014

I would have expected both books to have the January 2014 notes.

Just got the three volume 60th Lord of the Rings and Reader's Companion in a slipcase.

The Lord of The Rings single volume editions are all 6th printings, and the Reader's Companion is now a 1st printing with a copyright date of 2014.

I will try and put up some additional photos of the books later, but this picture shows the 50th box set, 60th box set and the 60th one volume edition.

If anybody else has a copy yet, does your dust-jacket on the Two Towers, appear to be the correct size and fit well on the book?

The second picture shows the problem, my dust jacket is way too big for the book, which results in bending on the dust jacket, which you can see at the top left of the dust jacket in the picture.
