By the way, anyone else noticed the spelling mistake on the contents page of the Catlin Hobbits?


Thanks for spotting that 'INSDIE INFORMATION'.

I have let HC know for any reprints

I don't have any of my books at hand at present, so can't recall if this Tolkien letter (a clipping of which is pictured in the auction below) has been published anywhere before, or not.

Anyone noticed that the HC website is showing a hardback edition of Children of Hurin as having been published on 1 August this year? As far as I can see, this looks exactly the same as the original 2007 edition.

Has anyone bought it, and is it genuinely a new (presumably 2nd) edition? If so, are there any noticeable changes?


Can you give a link, I have not noticed this?

It looks like some booksellers are breaking the embargo on Jemima's illustrated Hobbit, the publishers ask them to respect the embargo until the 12th September 2013, but they can not really stop them selling early.

Don't bother with ebay sellers like this, I know that Jemima has signed at least 1,000 copies and everyone can pick up a signed copy, at a reasonable price, if you want one.

I expect signed copies to be about £20 from tolkien.co.uk.

It could be that people were more inclined to bid because it was a charity auction, but it wouldn't hurt to try to list some of your duplicate copies.


I bought the Daily Telegraph interview, and paid this much as it was going to charity, I would not normally have paid anywhere as near as much for the item (no more than 25% of final price), but well done for raising so much money for charity
