I have just a look at Appendix F in the 1955 ROTK and the latest single volume ROTK that I have.

It would not be possible to use OCR to do a comparison like this as the page formatting is to dissimilar between the editions.

I noticed a couple of very minor issues, which look to be to a matter of editorial changes, rather than actual incorrect text in the latest edition.

As an example on page 1129 (line 17), the first edition has the word 'dealings' and the latest version says 'dealing'. I prefer 'dealings' as in the first edition, but both are correct, and it would not seem appropriate for any changes to be made in this case.

It is nice to see that it is only very minor areas like this that I have found and I have to say thanks to the efforts of Christopher Tolkien and the Estate, HarperCollins and Wayne and Christina for this.

I also think that the latest version is a much better reading experience than the first impression :)

It appears that you have the Canadian version of the book.

From J.R.R. Tolkien: A Descriptive Bibliography by Wayne Hammond and Douglas Anderson.

"Published in Canada by Unwin Paperbacks with different lettering and a black background." - Page 57

Yes, this is exactly what I was looking for, I will try and put up a spreadsheet that everyone can access and update over the weekend, so that interested parties have a place to update with items that they have found.

It does not matter what editions you are comparing, if you find a change then please record it, as it can be checked in editions that members have, and you may not have.

Having checked on this, the latest Return of the King that I have does state "The wild white kine", so it looks like this has already been looked at.

All,

Please help with this task if you can, it would be fantastic to get a better textual accuracy in the Appendices?

If you get a chance please see if you can find errors in the published editions of the Appendices.

A lot of errors may have been introduced, from the first edition of the Lord of the Rings, to the second edition and later changes.

In particular if you have a first edition Return of the King then please compare the Appendices with your latest edition, and please do so as well if you have a second edition.

If you find any differences, then please post them in this thread.

Two issues have already been found in the Tale of Years, but I think a lot more may be out there.

Can you also check, before posting that the issue you have found has not already been dealt with in the Reader's Companion or on the on-line Addenda and Corrigenda from Wayne and Christina?

Thanks, and looking forward to fixing mistakes in the Appendices.

Trotter

Very Sorry, but I do not think you can find this item.

The only way to get this, is if the seller gives a photo of the cover of the book that they are selling, so try that on ebay?
