Picked up a cheap The Lord of the Rings, one-volume edition, paperback, George Allen & Unwin, 1972, eleventh impression. Not very rare, of course, but in a very good condition.

To my surprise, the cover of my 11th impression book is the same as the 12th impression 1973 on TolkienBooks.net (the letter "O" does not cross the tree, the letters have a black border, etc). It is not the same as the 11th impression cover on TolkienBooks.

Does anyone else have the 1972, eleventh impression? Which version of the cover do you have?

I've been trying to read up a bit on the poem Doworst, and noted a small difference in how the title of the fanzine from the Fellowship of Middle Earth is rendered:

1) The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Reader's Guide (p. 214) has "A Elbereth Gilthoniel!".

2) Douglas A. Anderson, in an article in Tolkien Studies, uses the title "A Elbereth Gilthoniel", without the exclamation mark (vol. III, p. 144). The author of the article on TolkienBooks.net follows Anderson's usage.

In the online catalog of Marquette University Libraries, the fanzine is listed with the exclamation mark ("elbereth" and "gilthoniel" are furthermore rendered in lower-case, which I suspect is merely a database issue). The article on the fanzine in the bibliography here on TCG does the same.

Looking at the scan of the cover of the ?first issue of the fanzine in the TCG article – is the vertical line to the right of "A Elbereth Gilthoniel" supposed to be an exclamation mark?

Well, perhaps it's impossible to establish a "correct" rendering of the title. After all, many publications have ambiguous titles (for example, is it "Lembas-extra" or "Lembas Extra"?).

Thanks for sharing the link! I had never heard about that publication before.

And don't worry about your level of English - I'm not a native speaker either, and Khamul only teases me a little!

I have no connection to the seller, but thought it could be worth mentioning here (hard-to-get publication):

A bi-lingual (Eng/Swe) exhibition book, from the Paul Raymond Gregory (Tolkien artist) exhibition in Sweden, is offered for sale for about £16 + shipping at a Swedish dealer's site.

Paul Raymond Gregory. ur Tolkiens värld : from the world of Tolkien 2007; 79 pp, softbound, ISBN: 9188040895.

I'm not particularly interested in art books myself, but if anyone collects such, I'd be happy to help ordering the book.

Thank you Findegil - it appears like this letter hasn't been noted before.
