I have just received an email from HarperCollins advertising "The Tolkien Treasury", a boxset of Farmer Giles, Tom Bombadil, Smith and Roverandom. It mentions "Bonus material includes notes, alternate endings and illustrations by J.R.R Tolkien himself." Does anyone know if there is any new stuff in there?

Oh, and couldn't HarperCollins have used a new title for the set, rather than something that has been used before for an entirely different book?

It could be the photo (or fading??), as the dust jackets look very washed out.

Thanks for the confirmation, Wayne and Christina.

Another new book I am enjoying is the 2nd, expanded, edition of The Keys of Middle-earth. My proof-reading skills have struck again, though; there's a reference to section 2.3.3 in, er, section 2.3.3.

I may have spotted a minor typo in The Art of LoTR - page 140 says, "A similar rendering of Minas Tirith, but with a remarkably high tower, appears in a later, circa 1946 panoramic view, fig. 136)." Should this refer to fig. 137?

We found a copy of Humphrey Carpenter's Biography in an Oxfam bookshop this morning ... with a postcard from Carpenter to Robert Havard!
