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...

Great news, Wellinghall!

The official description of the deluxe edition says that it features:

"the first edition text and [...] a facsimile page of Tolkien’s original manuscript"

I'm a bit confused as to what "first edition text" here is referring to -- is it simply that this is the first edition of the book?

Is the "facsimile page" not reproduced in the standard edition of The Fall of Arthur?

I'm still trying to decide which edition to buy ... oops, perhaps I shouldn't say so here on the Collector's Guide...I meant: both, of course, and why not two trade editions and have one as reading copy
