'Tolkien on Tolkien' freely intermingles Tolkien's ?1955 autobiographical statement prepared for Houghton Mifflin and a December 1963-January 1964 letter to Nancy Smith. Letters publishes the statement on pp. 218-20, and on p. 221 three paragraphs from the letter, not so noted and misdated. We have an analysis of the Diplomat piece in the 'Reader's Guide' volume of The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide.

Thanks, Garm and Khamul. We spent most of the day working outside, away from the computer. We remembered answering this question before somewhere, and are glad to be reminded where it was. We made very brief comments about Artist and Illustrator and Pictures in the 'Reader's Guide' volume of the Companion and Guide, as well as in the introduction to 'Published Art by J.R.R. Tolkien' in the 'Chronology' volume, but will put a note about it also on our web site.

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By 'unpublished letters' we assume is meant, not published in Letters.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 As Garm very kindly says, we included parts of many previously unpublished letters in our Companion and Guide, over a hundred of them, and also quoted from extracts previously published in catalogues or elsewhere.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.
