But why do I have to return it?!

David Brawn should know better. There's only 30 or so of us; can we not just have a replacement & keep the misprinted copies?

Trotter, if you've finished complaining ( ), can I ask --are you returning your mis-bound copy?

Also, Jeremy, these misprints; are we definitely just talking about the Index? Has anyone on the forum actually ordered any other volumes?

The reply I got regarding Remembrancer back in 2009 was:-

We published the book you are asking about. It was written by Merlin’s father. We only printed about 250 copies which would explain why you have had so much difficulty in getting hold of a copy. Merlin has it in mind to try to get it set up on a print on demand basis and when and if this happens we will be happy to let you know. In the meantime I’m afraid the only option is second-hand booksellers.
Best wishes and thank you for your interest.

I got an automated email from Abebooks last week too. It arrived in my inbox at ~16:00; but when I went to the link (when I got in from work at ~17:30) it had clearly already been sold. Another email quickly followed this first one; it didn't contain an active link either --presumably sold very quickly.

Damn hard to locate Jlong. The copy on eBay Trotter was sold by Daeron's in March 2007: it went for £158. Only copy I've ever seen on eBay...

The printing numbers & history regarding Rayner's The Making of the Lord of the Rings produced by Wim is also quite complicated. I'm not sure if Wim can quite remember!

Has anyone actually received any of the new POD HoME titles yet?

I received my HoME Index 1st Hb Ed. yesterday. Without going into any detail regarding uniformity or quality, I did notice that the copyright page has no mention of printing or publishing date i.e. '2010' is nowhere stated. Also, perhaps where the date should have been stated, it has a big typo, with nonsense and overlapping printed characters.

Anyone else got their copy? Copyright page typo present?

And the new one isn't interesting too Trotter?

Incidentally Jeremy, other matter that might be added could just be culled from the older post(s). I couldn't be bothered reiterating all this, as the link is there for everyone to read for themselves. Off to get my dinner...
