I have added a few notes in a comment to the article - mostly based on information from the A&U archive.

It sounds like Tolkien's own illustration. This first appeared in the British Tolkien calendar for 1977

There is an illustrated German translation - published in 1978 I think.

Remy - Thanks for the info.

I have another question I would appreciate some assistance with:

Sometime in 1973-74 Allen & Unwin started to laminate the dustwrappers on the 3 volume hardback LotR to produce a harder wearing gloss finish.

FR - TT - RK

I am trying to find out when the lamination was introduced, so would appreciate hearing if anybody has some copies dating from 73-74. The lamination is easily spotted on the flaps of the jacket - sometimes it covers half of the flaps, sometimes just a few mm. It may have been introduced a little later for the Fellowship than for the other two volumes.
