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?

Thanks, wellinghall, for checking that your standard edition also included the manuscript facsimile. (I'll then skip the deluxe, since I don't have any of the other HC deluxe editions, and I've purchased some other a-bit-more-expensive-than-normal Tolkien publications this month.)

That's one of the most weird comments I've seen in an auction description of a Tolkien book...
