On tonight on BBC 4 at 9pm BST and for UK members will be on the BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.

"Hundreds of years ago in faraway Iceland the Vikings began to write down dozens of stories called sagas - sweeping narratives based on real people and real events. But as Oxford University's Janina Ramirez discovers, these sagas are not just great works of art, they are also priceless historical documents which bring to life the Viking world. Dr Ramirez travels across glaciers and through the lava fields of Iceland to the far north west of the country to find out about one of the most compelling of these stories - the Laxdaela Saga."

I think it is appropriate to mention the facsimile edition by HarperCollins coming out next year.

I'd love it to be the first impression, but now that I know (thanks Wayne & Christina) that the second impression also has Mirkwood and colour plates, I'd reluctantly settle for the 2nd (but first please).

Correct, it should not be.

I often wondered why it was not in the later copies, did Tolkien not like it or think it was out of place in the book? (hopefully this may be explained in a book coming out soon )

It is all in the pictures.

(I agree on the dust-wrapper spine, very poorly described by the seller, but not what I was looking for)
