That's indeed a beautiful painting! To me it seems like an object that would be more suited for auction houses, like Sotheby's and Christie's.

Does anyone know if there have been plans to reprint Pauline Baynes's "A Map of Middle-earth"?

According to Deagol's site, the last impression was made in 1980. From what I could find, there are for example currently no copies available for sale neither on Abebooks, eBay global, or the Tolkien Shop.

Perhaps we can hope for HarperCollins to make a print-on-demand edition (which would be great in connection with Findegil's forthcoming biography on Baynes)!

I bought a lovely little piece of ephemera today, A Tolkien Book of Days (HarperCollins 1996).

I would be glad for any help on the following questions:

1) Are the contents of this diary exactly reproduced from The Tolkien Diary (Grafton 1992)?

2) Is there any "unique" Tolkien material (or, material that can only be found in very expensive, out-of-print publications) in A Tolkien Book of Days? I'm specifically thinking of the illustrations (since the quotations all seem to come from widely available sources)? I cannot, for example, find the flower reproduced over 13-15 November in my copy of J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator (Hammond and Scull).

3) Across the book are sprinkled some very small illustrations and I wonder if all of these were made by Tolkien (and originally reproduced in Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien, which I sadly don't own yet) - for example the tiny spider and cobweb appearing below 15 March?

4) Anyone happens to know who wrote the short introduction and the "factual" texts appearing on several dates? The only people mentioned in the book are Frank Richard Williamson and Christopher Tolkien, but I suspect neither of these took part in writing these texts (?).

Many thanks for the link! It's good to see that The New York Times keep reprinting and adding articles to their "Tolkien Archives".

Very unusual to see a copy


Yes, I noticed that there are no sellers for the item on either Amazon.co.uk or Abebooks. And there are seemingly no libraries back here in Sweden which include it in their collections.

Nice to at least see a picture of it, though - beautiful cover!
