Looks like quite a heavy weight of paper, which is very useful to know for my facsimile.

Also good to see the level of roughness on the paper edges. Will need to do a similar rough job.

So annoying that I will have to use much whiter paper, but can't have everything, I guess.

Wow
Just watching tonights episode 55 mins and a Songs copy turns up. Sorry for my ignorance but who was the collector? Looks familiar?

£10-£12k i think the'expert' said



Haven't seen as yet, but glad it was Songs. 10 - 12K sounds about right, based on the couple I have seen come up.

Reminds me that I still haven't printed my Facsimile "Songs" (adds 'acquiring suitable paper' back onto list of things I never seem to get around to)

Can confirm - the copy I purchased to make my "facsimile second impression", which was from the second print (although marked as first) has the end papers reversed.

I guess we have a new variant. And I will need to use one of my other copies to make the "facsimile second impression" (whenever I get around to it).

[Edit: DB from HarperCollins has let me know that they think it was a batch of the first print run that probably had the maps loaded up incorrectly when being bound]

Someone has just posted a photo on the Tolkien Society f/book page showing their copy of the facsimile Hobbit with Thror's map on the rear endpaper.

I don't know which number printing this is.


That smells of cock-up. I wonder if it is a one-off or if there is a recent print-run of bad ones

I'd be surprised if it doesn't end up being Chinese, to be honest. Hopefully if it is, some lessons were learned from Kullervo.
