Today I ordered the Farmer Giles of Ham anniversary edition (HarperCollins), edited by Hammond and Scull, from a Swedish internet bookshop. The product description did not mention which anniversary, and the image of the cover of the book was too small to read the text. Now, I'm being a little confused on the alternative covers I've seen on Amazon.uk:

Amazon.uk

The cover of this edition clearly says 60th Anniversary Edition, and it makes sense since the edition is said to be published in December 2008. However, since the product description says: "This is the 50th anniversary edition...", I wonder if any new material was added to the 60th Ann. Ed.?

Thank you very much! (Wayne, would you mind if I use some of this info on the wiki Tolkien Gateway? We're slowly working on a list and individual articles of rare or unpublished JRRT letters)

Hi fellows,

I've been trying to find which catalogue that featured a description of a letter from JRRT to Miss R. Turnbull, dated March 11, 1949. The only info I have is that the catalogue was printed by Sotheby's in 1991. Maybe the letter has circulated in earlier (and later) auctions too?

I'm eagerly awaiting this book! Just thought I should share a reply I got from Douglas Anderson, since it gives some additional info (although the email was sent 9 months ago):

The book hasn't been published, and will likely appear with the build-up to The Hobbit movies, but there is currently no date for it.


Do we have more recent news?
