1) Are the contents of this diary exactly reproduced from The Tolkien Diary (Grafton 1992)?


They are the same, the only obvious difference is that the introduction is different in both books, but after that they look identical to me.

Beren posted about The Hobbit Facsimile First Edition to celebrate its 75th Anniversary on http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/9 ... bit_Facsimile_Edition.php and asked

Is this really what it appears to be: a facsimile reproduction of the 1937 edition complete with the original text (including the original "Riddles in the Dark" Chapter (ch.5) and the original black and white illustrations. Does it include any of the colour plates included in the first American Edition or will we have to wait to see a facsimile edition of the first American The Hobbit next year? It is a fascinating idea to have a true facsimile edition of The Hobbit made. But to have a true reproduction I wonder about some small details like the hand correction on back flap and the correct price on front flap - will they include this? How about the paper, the paper used for the dust-jackets? It would be wonderful to have an exact reproduction of the first printing.


I'd love to see a first impression reproduction, but expect it to be the 2nd impression as I think the colour plates would enhance sales of the book.

HarperCollins have been producing facsimile books of other authors for quite a while now, C.S. Lewis Narnia books and all the Agatha Christie books are good examples.

Out of interest here are some pictures from the facsimile "The Thirteen Problems" by Agatha Christie (originally published 5 years before the Hobbit) and I am sure the 75th Hobbit will be produced the same way. I am impressed with the paper in this book, it has not been whitened like new books and the only obvious difference between this book and the original is the limitation page. I like the second smaller just-jacket that gets round the problem of the barcode and modern price for the book, as the first dust-jacket is then an exact copy of the original (I think they will spell Dodgson correctly, without the e).

The Narnia facsimile books only have one dust-jacket with the new logo and modern price which is not as good as the Christie books in my opinion and I hope are not used for Tolkien.

I think you can also state that because of the large number of copies of this book that were bound, mistakes were also made.

I would expect that in some cases of the CLOTH boards. Headbands + dye state, the dye was not applied by mistake, this copy could be that, but it looks faded to me.
