typo semantics

bumpkin notices a typing mistake

I found a typo in the The Lord of the Rings Centenary edition. Yes, page 1130 Appendix B, March 12 section.
If you dont have a life either you can spend some valueless time looking this up. What is it?

Years ago I found two typos (1) In the Fellowship and the other one in TT.
Im wondering - Any others - maybe different editions?

Reera the Red replies

Which edition do you have? UK or US? Apparently the pagination differs, since page 1130 in my (US) edition puts me in Appendix F.

On the other hand, you may have access to a time warp, since you say that this is the "Centenary edition", and LotR was only published 50 years ago. (The fancy new volumes are 50th anniversary editions, not centenary.)

Anyhow -- I assume you're referring to March 12, 3019, as that's the only March 12 I can find an entry for. That one reads as follows in my edition:

"Gollum leads Frodo into Shelob's lair. Faramir retreats to the Causeway Forts. Théoden camps under Min-rimmon. Aragorn drives the enemy towards Pelargir. The Ents defeat the invaders of Rohan."

No typos in mine, and the only change I see from the earlier editions I have is that "Min-rimmon" is now hyphenated -- it wasn't before. This is a correction, as it now matches other references in the text.

The 50th anniversary edition has done a nice job of cleaning up some longstanding inconsistencies and errors in the text. I looked up a few of my pet peeves from earlier editions as soon as I got it, and was pleased to see them cleared up.

Arevanye states

No, no time warp. I believe bumpkin is referring to the special edition that was published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Tolkien's birth. It is also the one that contains the illustrations by Alan Lee. The back cover of mine has a lovely seal with Tolkien's JRRT graphic, and the words


Tolkien
The Centenary
1892 - 1992

The reference you cite is the appropriate one--and in the centenary edition there is no hyphen in this entry for "Minrimmon".

Reera the Red

Ah, that makes sense. If that text wasn't specially prepared and corrected for the edition, though, I'd expect it to have a number of the errors which have been repeated in various editions over the years. That was why I particularly wanted the 50th anniversary edition; it had been carefully and painstakingly edited to remove those errors and produce a "definitive" text. (I haven't found any new errors in that one yet, and the old ones are certainly pretty much gone, although I did notice one questionable old reference which I thought Christopher might change for this volume, but didn't.)

grammaboodawg adds

Found a huge mistake in the Ballantine/Fantasy edition: Copyright 1965, 60th printing: June 1977 ISBN 0345253434

Many Meetings: Fellowship of the Ring

pg 291 -- the paragraph is totally screwed up. It reads:

"'Only a Ranger!' cried Gandalf. 'My dear Frodo, that is just what the Rangers are: the last remnant in the North helped me before; and I shall need their help in the days of the great people, the Men of the West. They have to come; for we have reached Rivendell, but the Ring is not yet at rest.'"

It should read:

"'Only a Ranger!' cried Gandalf. 'My dear Frodo, that is just what the Rangers are: the last remnant in the North of the great people, the Men of the West. They have helped me before; and I shall need their help in the days to come; for we have reached Rivendell, but the Ring is not yet at rest.'"

any more?
