I found this just the other day in a second edition, second impression Two towers from -67.

Excellent. Very nice. Had not seen this one before.

I have this flier from 1999 which unfolds to reveal the large selection of Tolkien books available at the time.

As time goes by, I find these things more interesting than the books sometimes. Lovely to see.

Interesting to see the different covers for two of these UK books, The Complete Guide to Middle-earth and John Garth's Tolkien's War (How J.R.R. Tolkien survived the Great War).

I think Tolkien and the Great War was the better choice.
