Marinier, a big THANX! for your time and effort in making this one. Virtual, too, for filling the gap.

I've checked addenda and corrigenda to all three editions on the authors' site and there was only one on p. 33 in the first two editions which was incorporated in the third edition. That means the pp. 29-32 from the first (Virtual's) edition are identical to the missing pp. 29-32 from the third (Marinier's) edition, hence we can say we have a complete scan of the third edition.

Now, in my opinion, there's only one crucial scan left to do: The Lord of the Rings 60th Anniversary Edition (one-volume hardcover, illustrated by Alan Lee). Marinier, would it be possible for you to scan your copy at some point? All ebook editions to date were based on the 50th Anniversary Edition with various typos throughout...

I have only one physical copy of LOTR in my library, and this is the illustrated one https://www.harpercollins.co.uk/9780007525546/the-lord-of-the-rings/


The dimensions of this book makes impossible for me to do double-page scans on my A4 scanner. It just doesn't fit. Scanning one page at a time would make no sense for this huge and heavy book of 2,4 kg (and may be dangerous for the book itself). The only way to get a 60th Anniversary text looks like to scan three volumes form this 4-volumes set https://www.harpercollins.co.uk/9780007581146/the-lord-of-the-rings-boxed-set/

It has the same text and even fits perfectly the Reader's Companion pagination references. But I do not have this edition. Maybe someone who have that set can scan.

Marinier: I understand.

Would it be possible then for you to make photographs of your entire edition?
You made a great overview back in 2014, but could you expand it to the whole book?

I have the 50th edition rather than the 60th so sadly can't help with a scan.

But do we have a list of known typos and errors present in the 50th? Surely I could bring the corrections into the 50th and thus negate the need for a scan?

Naugperedhel, рад стараться)

Guys, now I want to share with you my final result of 3-days of work with A Reader’s Companion.
I wanted it to be a handy PDF-version, so my version has:

- the digital contents menu (that opens a desired chapter of the book when you click on the title)
- the automated text recognition lay (with no human check) that allows to perform a full-text search
- nice and close to the real book look (I mean double page view especially)

I have also noticed that if I open this PDF with MacOS native preview tool (which manages the PDF files much faster the any Adobe product on MacOS) it gives no option (unlike Adobe Reader) to select how to use the 1st cover-page when choosing the double-page view. So in some circumstances it may create problems if you want to use it, but without Adobe products. I know that you all have different skills, but the best product is the one ready to use right out of the box. This is why I created 2 versions of the same PDF. One is just with +1 blank page after the cover. It should help if any of you experience difficulties with double-page view adjusting in the preview program that you use. There are no other differences between two files in the folder, that I share below.

Folder with 2 Final versions of "The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion" (2014, 3rd Ed) Version with Digital Contents Menu (MEGA) (2 files * 90 mb).

Marinier, низко кланяюсь Вам в ноги. Сейчас очень сильно загружен, но в максимально ближайшее время закину лучшую версию Вашего скана на Libgen и обновлю список.

Благодарю за такое признание) На Libgen я этот pdf уже загрузил, но вот к своему удивлению в Libgen не нашёл свой скан цветной делюкс-факсимиле книги Толкина Mr. Bliss. Странно. Мне казалось я её туда загружал, когда здесь делился обзором на эту книгу. Вот её завтра закину тоже не Libgen. На мой взгляд она просто превосходна в том издании.

Hello all.

https://mega.nz/#F!ZhsA1QDS!NVa-6VC43ys3EnDAkMw9aA

Issues 1-12, 33, 38-44 of Mallorn and issue 1 of Anduril from 1972.

That should give you all a complete run of Mallorn from 1 to 58 but in case you are missing any issues I have added the rest in in the included folder.


First, philthehip, thank you so much for all the great work you're doing!

I've been trying to sort all of my Tolkien magazines and still seem to be missing a few of Mallorns. The link seems to be dead, so, if anyone has a working one of 1-12 and 38-44, I'd be so very thankful!

Always a pleasure. Give me half an hour and I will sort the complete run on MEGA.

Has anyone seen a scan of The Hobbit Sketchbook?
This is it https://www.bookdepository.com/Hobbit-Sketchbook-Alan-Lee/9780008226749

Or maybe one of us posses a copy of it.
We'd be all grateful for scan or at least for a bunch of page-after-page photo of it.

I have it as part of the recent box-set with The Lord of the Rings.

I am planning to scan some other bits like the Sir Gawain Deluxe frontis, editors note and a few other bits from it so I will add it to the list. I don't have a scanner personally but my Moma-in-Law has one and I will be using it soon.
