Yes, more details, please -- photo(s), if possible. Is there a date on the title-page? Is there a printing code (row of numbers) on the copyright page? Is there a fold-out map, or is the map printed on the endpapers? Presumably all as for the standard hardback, as you say it has all the points. Especially, how is it bound? My first thought was of the first American trade paperback, which is in red wrappers and somewhat smaller than the standard American hardback, but that has always had correct "Farmer Giles" in the list of works. Another thought is that the copy in question has been rebound and, in the process, cut down, perhaps a library rebinding. Are there any library marks? Or there could be a book club edition Christina and I have never seen.

'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.
