Variant 3 is totally blank except for the map.

The reason the map positioning makes it likely to be a Clowes book rather than a Billing copy is that in the Clowes 1st Impression the map is on the left hand page while the Billings 1st Impression (and all later impressions) had the map bound in the other way round as the right hand page.

These three bibliography entries record the map facing an odd page number for the Dummy and Clowes 'Export' Editions, and facing an even page number for the Billing 'Domestic' Edition and later impressions:

Dummy
Export
Domestic

I guess the people buying the Folio copies aren't 'hardcore' collectors and just want a good looking set of books. The Folio editions fit in nicely (price-wise) between trade hardback editions and the various HC deluxe editions.

I have been checking up on Variant 3 of the Silmarillion dummy. It has no jacket, but it does have the 'Realms of the Noldor and Sindar' map on the left hand side page, so is likely to be a Clowes book rather than a Billing copy.

It is out of print (I think) so they are getting scarce.
Back in 2000-2001 they sold for silly money until it was reprinted in 2002.

The latest update at TolkienBooks.net has been completed. There should be something to interest everybody I think!

This latest update to the bibliography covers the period 1925-1937.

Conversational Course: English. 1930Spanning the period from J.R.R. Tolkien becoming a Professor at Oxford until the publication of The Hobbit, this was perhaps the most productive period of his writing life: As well as publishing more than a dozen poems, revising and expanding 'The Silmarillion', and writing The Hobbit, Mr. Bliss and Roverandom, Tolkien was also making his professional name with the publication of an edition of Sir Gawain, and papers on subjects including the 'AB Language’ and Beowulf.

New entries to the 1925-1937 section include:

Conversational Course: English - 1930 - This English language course by Linguaphone includes two recordings by Tolkien and Professor A. Lloyd James.

Tolkien Studies IV - 2007 - As well as reprinting Tolkien's essay The Name ‘Nodens’, this volume also includes extracts from unpublished drafts of The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth.

The Life of Joseph Wright - 1932 - This biography includes brief extracts from a letter to Joseph Wright, where Tolkien reveals that it was Wright’s works that had introduced him to philology as a schoolboy.

La Kunularo de l' Ringo - 2007 - This is the updated Esperanto translation of The Fellowship of the Ring. It is prefaced by A Philologist on Esperanto, a reprint of Tolkien’s letter to the secretary of the Education Committee of the British Esperanto Association.

Tolkien and the Spirit of the Age. 1987An Edition of The Life and the Passion of Saint Juliana - 1936 - 1961 - 1990 - Three entries for S.R.T.O. d'Ardenne's thesis have been added. The book is dedicated to Tolkien. D’Ardenne admitted privately that Tolkien should have been credited as a joint editor.

In addition, all images have been replaced with newer, higher resolution scans and many entries have been revised and expanded.

Articles Updated
Christopher Tolkien: A Bibliography - Three additions: Arda 1986 (Contains comments by CRT on The Clerke's Compleinte), Microphones in Middle-earth (A CD including extracts from a tape prepared by CRT to aid pronunciation of names in the BBC's radio serialisation of LotR) and The Children of Húrin (An audio book read by CRT and Christopher Lee).

Tolkien Calendars - The 2008 HarperCollins calendar has been added and the table of equivalent years has been amended and expanded.

Tolkien’s Languages and Alphabets - Details of Issue 17 of Parma Eldalamberon added.

Printing and Binding The Lord of the Rings - Note regarding the 3rd Impression of The Fellowship of the Ring corrected (Re: Quantity of paper used for the cancel leaf).

There have also been a large number of updates elsewhere in the bibliography:

Images Added:
George Allen & Unwin - Summer Announcements 1937The Sunday Telegraph 1963
The Daily Express 1966
Scotsman Week-end Magazine 1967
Beyond Bree May 1985
Weekend Guardian 1991

Tyalië Tyelelliéva One, Fourteen & Sixteen
