Through 30 November, Oak Knoll Books are offering a 30% discount on more than 400 of their backlist titles, including J.R.R. Tolkien: A Descriptive Bibliography, thus $65.80 rather than $94.00. A PDF catalogue may be found here and the pertinent HTML catalogue page here.

Maybe it's better to wait for the second edition, if it will appear soon...?

The new edition is still at least two years away, I reckon.

Well, that's something to genuinely look forward to; particularly more Silmarillion detail! As you've commented before; quite a lot has come to light since 1993 --& clearly there was much compression in the first edition in any case. At least two years you reckon? Still with (further) assistance from Doug? --or under your own byeline only (--or co-authoring with Christina)? Any radical format ideas, or just bringing up to date?

Sorry to take so long replying to your comment, Khamul, it came in just as Christina and I went to Boston for a few days, mainly to spend time with the Houghton Mifflin archive at Harvard - research for both a second edition Bibliography and for our book on Pauline Baynes.

Actually, there was no compression in the first edition. St Paul's published everything I sent them, though with longer lines and tighter leading than I wanted (to compensate for a text much longer than they expected). I think, though, that these days an even greater amount of detail is wanted than was common in author bibliographies in 1993. I don't expect to change the format appreciably, or to do any renumbering except where I now know the entries to be reversed in date order; but I may rethink how to approach the very complicated Section G (Translations), and I'm not sure what to do about Dii (Separately Published Letters and Excerpts) since so much of that kind of material is now 'published' on ephemeral web sites.
