More Addenda and Corrigenda

December 28, 2011

We posted to our website this afternoon new addenda and corrigenda to The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (both the Chronology and the Reader’s Guide as well as the  work as a whole), the 50th anniversary edition of The Lord of the Rings, and The Lord of the Rings: A Reader’s Companion. Wayne has made an addition also to his Arthur Ransome: A Bibliography. Altogether, thirteen web pages have been updated, including the supplemental bibliographies for the Companion and Guide and the Reader’s Companion. For many of our additions, and one correction, to the Companion and Guide we’re indebted to Carl Phelpstead’s Tolkien and Wales: Language, Literature and Identity (2011), a work we warmly recommend as an essential volume in Tolkien studies (see further here). We have also begun to mine more thoroughly Christina’s Tolkien scrapbooks as she proceeds to index them.

In reply to Gian Pietro’s request in his comment on A Working Library, Part Two, here’s another photo of some of our Lord of the Rings bookshelves, from a closer distance. Our site stats suggest that pictures of our book collection are very popular!

A few copies of The Lord of the Rings

    Thanks for the photo – it’s very inspiring to see the wonderful collection you have acquired. And a special thanks for the continuing work on updating the addenda and corrigenda – the level of accuracy and details you’re striving for is noteworthy beyond the circles of Tolkien scholarship!

      That’s a lot of shelves, Jeff! But we’ll see about shooting some representative photos.

    I join Morgan in thanking you very much for the photo, the post, the updates and the books (The Art of the Hobbit is at hand on my desk).
