Translation: HarperCollins uses 75th Anniversary as excuse to shovel the same stuff out in endless different tacky printed-in-China variants. Fortunately we will be getting a facsimilie Hobbit (which I am really looking forward to), so I can ignore the rest of it, I suppose...

"Braun said he was wondering what he could do that would be a little bit different: "It looks really cute, and hobbits are little, so it's the sort of mad idea you have as a publisher. I think it's going to run away."

Oh, dear..

The ditched copy in Unfinished Tales is my favourite map, even if it has been drawn by Christopher

Bah. I preferred the old maps, even if CT isn't a gifted artist. Frankly, I don't like change and the old ones were fine by me when I was a young 'un.

Now Trotter, you aren't being very generous to her, are you? She was clearly talking in *Geologic terms* when she stated "this edition didn't last very long". Clearly.
