Trotter:

"How many pages in total are the text of The Lay of Aotrou & Itroun and how many are commentary?"

The Lay itself (as published in The Welsh Review) appears on pp. 3-21. The rest of the book contains a mix of commentary by Flieger and related manuscripts by Tolkien. A detailed Contents can be found as a "preview" on the Amazon page of the book.

"where was it printed and what are your views on the printing quality?"

"Printed and bound in Great Britain by Clays Ltd, St Ives plc". Printing quality is same as the other recent (standard hardcover) Tolkien titles from HarperCollins.

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.
