Yeh, I just got another email (from Amazon) explaining that the publication date had been put back again; as I'm guessing a few others here did too. I'm guessing this is still planned to be a true facsimile edition; therefore, as you allude, will not have colour plates.

Does anyone get the impression this edition is going to get pulled? I mean, is it really viable for them to trot out this "75th anniversary" line when this book is due to be published 77 years after the first publication?

To the average punter walking into the book store (physically or virtually) and buying it as a gift (which is probably how most will be sold), the anniversary tagline in the box is probably fairly arbitrary. Let's be honest, they have been selling the 50th Anniversary LoTR books for ten years.

I think it will still happen by virtue of the expanded sales window that is currently open due to PJs risible movies. I certainly *hope* it happens as it is one of the few genuinely exciting releases on the cards (excepting Beowulf, of course).

I could have sworn that said £80-odd yesterday. Anyway, yes --£50.69 is a great price. I see the new cover image for A Reader's Companion too.

£55.80 on Amazon now. That was good enough for me to pre-order.

Think some of them may have been issued with a set of Royal Mail Tolkien Centenary Stamps (£6) also. Have seen a few listed with the stamps included.


Any idea if it was just the book and the stamps or was there some other packaging also tying the two items together (metaphorically not physically)? I'm wondering if it was a HarperCollins thing or something specific to one of the UK book retailers of the era (e.g. WH Smiths).

There was a previous thread on these. Not a huge amount of information, unfortunately.

Poorly described auctions are usually the best ones. Sometimes an element of risk, mind!
