If people have this edition, can they check page 169 to see if they have the same printing error as in this picture and my copy.

This is the other copy on eBay

It is meant to say Kôr.

Still no clearer as to what they were for, but it does seem that quite a lot of these stickers were used in the late 1970's and they are not particularly rare. Thanks all for help with this.

A new book by Liam Campbell, ‘The Ecological Augury in the Works of J.R.R. Tolkien' (launched at Oxonmoot last week) was published today.

Article from the Derry Journal

Have to question this though "The front cover photograph is actually a quite rare photo of Tolkien which has never been seen before."? It is a Pamela Chandler photo and has been available for a very long time and most people probably have a copy of it including the National Portrait Gallery

Liam explains the particular angle taken by the book: “Through a close analysis of not only his fiction, but also his private papers, my book unfolds the ecological dimension of Tolkien’s work and worldview.

“The work primarily asserts that by virtue of his consistent portrayal of such striking environmental themes, where machine-laden regimes of power move against the land, Tolkien was a visionary defender of nature who, before the emergence of any organised Green Movement, may have predicted the scale of the environmental emergency that modern generations now face.”

“I have no doubt,” Liam adds, “that the Green dimension of Tolkien’s fiction has fed into its enduring popularity.” The book also traces aspects of Tolkien’s work such as the influence of Celtic myth and re-evaluates Tolkien, not as an escapist writer of fantasy, but as a contemporary writer responding to the defining crises of his time.

Speaking of the Oxford launch of the book, Liam says: “It was all quite humbling for this Derry man, who first got interested in fantasy literature and Tolkien after reading The Hobbit as a boy, to find myself up behind the lectern of such a prestigious and historic establishment preparing to speak. This was especially true given that Tolkien himself was a professor of Oxford University and lived and worked there for much of his adult life.”

Anybody know anything about this "The Oxford and Tolkien connection continues for Liam as he has been invited to contribute a chapter to a new Oxford based encyclopaedic reference book on Tolkien which is to be released in 2012 to coincide with Peter Jackson’s new The Hobbit films."?
