Got the last copy (in the window) in the best bookshop in the town I work in. Noticed it quite by coincidence! I guess we can conclude that this really IS the very last book of JRRT's writings (at least to receive the full editorial treatment by CRRT, the person best qualified to do it).
What a tragedy the 'Last Version' was not completed! We would certainly have some of the best of the Master's writing, when he was at the height of his powers, and concerning a tale that had been at the centre of his imagination for so long.
