Just out of curiosity: did you get vol. XII through the link I sent you (although you already had seen it), Khamûl?

And I have to join in the praise: you have a truly impressive collection!

It's quite interesting that copies of TS are so expensive on the secondhand market (and that some people, apparently, are willing to pay those prices). It has happened a couple of times that I've seen copies still in print being offered for at least twice or thrice the list price at WVUP.

Well, in any case it's a good deal for those having spare copies!

Abrupt change of topic:

The Early English Text Society will reissue The English Text of the Ancrene Riwle (i.e., Ancrene Wisse) in paperback on 20 June 2013:

(I just bought a nice copy of the 1962 original edition, for 20 GBP! )

My guess is that this is an error on behalf of the publishers (the typesetter).

On the subject of the layout (I'm going interior this time) of The Fall of Arthur, I have an issue with the Appendix (just got my copy of the UK standard edition today):

In the HoMe volumes, J.R.R. Tolkien's texts are always rendered in a larger font, in order to easily distinguish it from editorial comments. However, in the Appendix of FoA, I can't notice any such distinction -- J.R.R. Tolkien's lecture is printed with the same font size as Christopher's comments. Is it only I who find this a bit confusing?
