Interesting - but there's a bit of a blooper here - it says

'Based on earlier designs by Tolkien’s son Christopher, the map was extracted from an edition of The Lord of the Rings in the late 1960s, and served as a working document – used by Tolkien and illustrator Pauline Baynes to develop a new poster depicting Middle-earth'

But of course this map isn't 'based on earlier designs by Christopher' - it was removed from Pauline Baynes's copy of TT; this (and the Mordor map in RK were actually drawn by Christopher (who signed 'em with initials), and it was he who'd tidied up his dad's maps for publication.

Allen & Unwin messed up the numbers in the 1st ed. FotR - they printed the 5th imp. in February 1956; then marked the next imp. '5th impression December 1956'. Publishers, eh!

As Rayner Unwin remarked, many years later (on another matter, IIRC) -
"It just goes to show the publishers cannot count'.
