I've been distracted by troubles with the website for the last 2 or 3 weeks - all sorted now, it seems to be running smoothly. Will try to follow up some leads this week.
I have been in touch with somebody who owns an advance copy of FR in a proof jacket. He has promised some scans, so I'll try to add them to the site at some stage.

Humphrey Carpenter ran into the same issues when he wrote the Biography. I guess it comes with the territory.

This is the book mentioned - here.

It has the same ISBN as the standard trade hardback edition. HarperCollins are slowly reissuing their main Tolkien titles in new style jackets, so I think that this may be the reissue of The Hobbit rather than a facsimile edition.

Amazon are particularly bad at updating the publication dates and sometimes send out books with the old style cover even though they picture the new one.

Beren published a Q&A with David Brawn of HarperCollins last month and the only mention of The Hobbit was the new jacket.

There were rumours of a facsimile edition a few years ago, but the only thing to appear was the 2004 Deluxe Edition which included some of the things that Tolkien wanted in the first edition, but were omitted because of costs/practicalities.

I put my vote to video and audio materials, but posters come a close second - especially those featuring Tolkien's artwork.

What a fascinating article on the animated Hobbit. It makes me want to rush down to Reading to see what A&U had to say about it all!

The Companion and Guide is proving to be very useful. Especially the Chronology. Finding out what Tolkien wrote to Allen & Unwin and when, proved to be very useful when I was trying to work out when the various proof copies of LotR were produced.

Browsing through the 'Works Consulted' section at the end throws up a lot of references that I really 'must' track down. I can see why it took Hammond & Scull so long to research and write the books.

I've never seen a second hand copy of Rayner's Remembrancer for sale. If you would just like a photocopy of the text, I can send you one, drop me an email.
