I have moved to a Linux server, so it is senstive to upper and lower case letters. The same banner was in use on several sites, so I have changed the file name on the server. If you use http://www.tolkienbooks.net/BiblioBanner.gif it should be ok now.

The servers used by Webfusion do seem faster than the slug-like 1and1. Hopefully they will be reliable as well.

I haven't been on ebay for nearly 2 months.
Typical - lots of bargains around and I don't have any book buying money!

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.
