My assumption is, just like The Story of Kullervo, this book too might be embellished with some commentary.


It looks like it would be 109 extra pages of embellishment and commentary, if I remember correctly, the 1945 Welsh Review had in total, half the number of pages of embellishment and commentary that is now proposed, and that is for the entire Welsh Review.

Just had a look at my copy of The Welsh Review, which is an A5 booklet, with 63 pages, Tolkien's poem is on 11 pages of A5 printed on both sides, I am struggling with how this can become a 120 page book.

I'm not sure if this has come up (I did a quick search of the boards and did not find anything on it).

HarperCollins seems to be releasing The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun by Verlyn Flieger later this year.

Link: http://www.harpercollins.ca/978000820 ... -lay-of-aotrou-and-itroun


The website states at the moment that it is an ebook only, and I can't find any reference to Verlyn Flieger on the site that you linked to, where did you see that?

The poem has been reprinted twice, since its appearance in the Welsh Review in 1945, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=31350, in a bilingual English/Serbian edition.

Like Stu,

I have three copies of this book, two of which are unopened, sealed and in the original packaging.

I intend to sell them when HarperCollins has sold all of these editions, which could be up to 10-15 years time, hopefully a lot sooner.

I have no expectations or would want to try and sell them for more than the price that HarperCollins are selling them for, which is £350, or just over $500USD.

I do not like taking advantage of buyers who have no knowledge of the current market and pay a lot more than they could get the item for, however very happy to do so with sellers
