Have this information to share on the Collector's Edition: "no details are fully confirmed yet but there will be significant differences to represent the price". The details are expected to be made public in January.

Interesting. Altho', given that they already think the time-scale is too short to procure signings, it seems unlikely that'll be interesting in that direction. Hopefully a better binding, etc.

I wonder why the time-scale is too short for signings. Seems like you could do that in a couple weeks with proper organisation and overnight couriers.

"While poking around a bit (thanks for the news sharing!), I ran across this book from Bodleian [Treasures from the Map Room], and I am thinking if it is worth purchasing. Anyone here have it? Does it have Tolkien's maps reproduced in it?"

Yes, it reproduces the original drawing of Tolkien's map of Wilderland from "The Hobbit" (MS. Tolkien Drawings 35), accompanied by a concise description of the writing and publication history of "The Hobbit" (pp. 204-5).

It is, further, quite a handsome book.

Noticed an article in the Oxford Mail about the exhibition next year, not much new, but it looks to be a free exhibition, which is unusual, as most exhibitions like this have an admission fee
