Thanks for the replies. Interesting that Wellinghall's first printing is "right." This would indicate that it was indeed "corrected." The publisher's image (see Amazon or Wayne & Christina's blog) clearly shows the titles both right-facing. It sure makes a lot more sense to me to have the slipcase mimic the book.

Perhaps this has been mentioned elsewhere, but last night I discovered that the slipcase for my HC 1st printing of Wayne & Christina's The Art of the Lord of the Rings is printed backwards. Every other slipcase I have (including the companion Hobbit Art volume) is oriented so that the front of the book is facing the same direction as the front (title side) of the slipcase. In other words, when shelved (spine out) all titles face right. Not so with this volume. I'm wondering if anyone else noticed this and whether this apparent mistake was corrected (have there been additional printings?).

Tolkienbooks.net (which I trust) lists the 1999 Poems from the Hobbit as a mini hardback. Wherever I search on the net to buy the book, using the same ISBN, it's always described as paperback/softcover. Only the Houghton Mifflin version comes up as hardback. Is there a softcover or is this just an error that's become attached to the book?

I get the feeling that it is a mistake based on the description which matches the current Mr Bliss:

"Published here for the first time with Tolkien's own colorful illustrations integrated into his comical story, this book also includes the original handwritten version of the story printed in facsimile at the back, giving readers of all ages two ways of enjoying this remarkable book."

Though if this is the case, then why not include Mr Bliss's companion Letters from Father Christmas in the series? Who knows? Personally, I'd be surprised if they did a pocket Mr Bliss.
