I bought a copy of the Nodens Books reprint while it was still available.

To answer some of the questions:

1) Downplaying Mills?

Aside from some reminiscences about Stella M. Mills' personality, Priscilla Tolkien's Foreword deals almost exclusively with the friendship between Stella Mills and the Tolkien family. As such, the Foreword doesn't include any discussion about Mills' edition of The Saga of Hrolf Kraki.

2) Is there anything offensive?

There are one or two paragraphs in the Foreword that (at least from my reading) are quite obviously the source behind the reaction of the family of Stella Mills. These paragraphs concern some personal matters in the Mills family.

From the pictures, it looks like your 1st/1st is dangerously close to falling down into a bucket of water, Trotter!

Seeing the buzz this publication creates, especially at Facebook, it wouldn't surprise me if the 4,000 print-run will be sold out. For those here who might not have Facebook, by the way, a copy was found at Hodges & Figgis, Dublin.

Like many others here, I now have an estimated arrival date (at Amazon UK): October 05 2016 - October 07.

Have a look here:

http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Index:Interviews_with_J.R.R._Tolkien

It may not be complete or fully correct (it's a wiki), but it's pretty well referenced, so you can use it as a basis for further investigation.

Edit: On a second reading I see you mean "recorded" as in an audio recording, not as in "record"="store information". Anyway -- hope you find something useful!

I have my Hobbit facsimile on a pre-order from Amazon UK -- thanks for all your efforts with the dust jacket, Stu, and for sharing your thoughts here. It's interesting to follow the process (although I have much less time nowadays to spend on the JRRT hobby)! And I recognize dealing with the wife's patience... happy wife, happy life!
