This book will simply change your life.
Tolkien constantly fought with copy editors, illustrators and book designers over the significant details of his published works. They usually made such terrific mistakes that the illustrations and design work actually detracted from the story. For example, the first American edition actually depicted a Hobbit on the title page wearing shoes! This edition is the one that is most consistent with Tolkien's original design - finally the publisher got it right.
