Thanks. I’m more curious if anyone has it, likes it, considers it important.

I have a copy around somewhere, but I cannot find it at the moment. I really enjoyed the artwork and the research that went into it, I recommend it.

Will the J. R. R. Tolkien Companion and Guide receive a Houghton Mifflin edition?

Seems unlikely HM will publish the second edition (even though they did the first in 2006).


The only hardcover editions of the Atlas are the HM 1st ed., and the revised ed. from Easton Press, is that correct?

You can see the U.S. editions here: www.TolkienBooks.US/ot/maps/atl

What about Journeys of Frodo — anyone have it? I have long heard of it, but never seen one in the flesh.

I'd recommend as well, I think Journeys and Atlas compliment each other.

Thanks for the link. I was unaware of that site. Excellent! Is it new?

Relatively new, yes, came out late last year. It's an incredible site, isn't it?? Whoever made it must be a very interesting, handsome, and charming person. I just wish the pages would load faster!!

Well, great work. It is a nice to have an alternative to the spotty (but still much appreciated) ‘The U.S. Tolkien Guide’.

So, are you going to add The Journeys of Frodo?

Does anyone own these: Tolkien's Legendarium and Arda Reconstructed?

Thanks Ulmo I feel that it's more like complimentary sites rather than alternatives. Have you seen TCG's fanzine section? Incredible!

I do plan to add Journeys very soon actually if I can find time.

Does anyone own these: Tolkien's Legendarium and Arda Reconstructed?

Guessing most people here have both, and some here (not me) may even have their names in or on them! Both great books, Legendarium is an absolutely great batch of essays by some of the very best Tolkien scholars. Arda is interesting for sure, though I think there are some divided opinions on it. Both worth having.

The Guy that runs the US site really is a clever & handsome guy...

Arda is fabulous just for what Doug attempted; with the qualifier that it's certainly not correct (judging by CT's specific reply to the book) is some of it's conclusions. Legendarium doesn't feel like a "must-have" secondary work to-be-honest. It's a great collection though; especially the Rayner Unwin piece. Haven't even looked at that in a long while; should remind myself of what's actually in it...

I wasn't aware that CT responded to Arda, can you point to where that is or give the gist please?
