There are two typos, HarperCollins and the date (2010) appear in a very strange font, and they also forgot to include the full ISBN, just left the end blank.


It also omits the credit line 'Compiled by Helen Armstrong' which appears above the ISBN in the original printing. (Unless this has been moved elsewhere in the print-on-demand copies.)

It would be interesting to see a picture of the Index page with the typo, if someone could post one.

We have not yet tried to order the Index or any of the other HOME print-on-demand titles, waiting to see how this all shakes out.

By 'unpublished letters' we assume is meant, not published in Letters. There are still many Tolkien letters which have never appeared in print, in whole or in part – more than we can know, as we've not had access to the preserved Tolkien family correspondence; and then there are many letters which have appeared only in part, e.g. in auction or manuscript dealers' catalogues, which would come under Morgan's heading of 'hard-to-find'. As Garm very kindly says, we included parts of many previously unpublished letters in our Companion and Guide, over a hundred of them, and also quoted from extracts previously published in catalogues or elsewhere. The copyright statement at the back of either volume points to sources, supported by our bibliography of works consulted. Wayne's Descriptive Bibliography, Section Dii, is also a useful list of separately published letters or extracts up to mid-1992.

There are also letters recorded in the addenda and corrigenda to the Companion and Guide, at this site.

There's also a small pamphlet, Fifty Years of Publishing Books That Matter, issued by Allen & Unwin in 1964. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are both mentioned briefly.

In regard to the Remembrancer, it would be nice to have a print-on-demand copy, to spare our original any further wear. Some typos, etc. could be corrected in the process. Rayner sent most of the copies to friends, relations, and former Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman employees, leaving the remainder to Merlin for sale. In his covering note to us, he said: 'You will find much of this rather boring but I think you might like the two Tolkien chapters.' Actually it's all very interesting.

Christina and I also think that the signature isn't genuine.

(The word, by the way, is provenance, 'the pedigree of a book's previous ownership' - John Carter, ABC for Book Collectors.)
