Notes
The Realms of the Noldor and the Sindar map is located facing page 121. Blank sheet inserted at rear instead of the Map of Beleriand and the Lands to the North.

Printed by Clowes & Sons.

Pre-publication dummy copy. According to a letter seen with one copy, these were distributed to booksellers to solicit pre-publication orders.

Dark blue cloth binding, with blue and white striped headband, dyed blue top edge and dark blue coloured dustwrapper.

Two variants have been seen:

1) With the pages printed up to page 32
2) With the pages printed up to page 35

One copy has been reported (but not seen in person) without any printed pages except for the map facing page 121. However, it is not clear if some pages had been removed from this example.

Most copies come in the unpriced export jacket, but one copy of the 32 page variant has been seen in a priced domestic dustwrapper. Whether this was as issued is uncertain.
