      I have compiled a partial list of manuscripts referenced in PE 17,
      mainly as an aid to resolve cross-references. As you know,
      cross-references in PE 17 are to volume and page in _LR_ (1st ed.), not
      to the actual page in PE where the word or phrase is discussed, which
      can be confusing at times. I hope the following list may be useful to
      others. (It was formatted to be concise, then formatted again as ASCII
      text. It may need to be reformatted to be of much use.)


      1) 'A dozen loose sheets placed together' (17:8).

      1A) The 'Dec. 59' (D59) group of loose sheets:

      note to 'Delete entirely yondo = son' (17:43).
      7B) -on, -ion in patronymics (17:170). May have been intended as a

      7C) A note to 'Delete all references of <NG>oldo' (17:125).
      7D) A loose half-sheet placed after the gathering: note on 'Q Wanted.

      8) A collection of materials in the pocket of a cardboard folder,

      8A) Article on PHAN, first version (17:173-174).
      8B) Article on PHAN, revised version (17:173–180). The first page was
      written on the back of a note on SKAL (17:184).
      8C) Note on 'The opening verse of the chant' to Elbereth (17:20–21),
      along with a word-by-word analysis (either incomplete, or not published
      in its entirety): 'El-bereth and Fanuilos', gil- (17:23); 'Participial
      form from S míria' (17:24); elenath, palan-díriel (17:25); Fanuilos (17:26).
      8D) A typed sheet placed immediately following the discussion of PHAN:
      notes on Galadriel (17:59–60) and '[...] the elvish tongue of the
      "Silvan Folk"' with a note on lembas (17:51–52).
      There was also a writing-pad labelled 'Galadriel' and 'Some _Problems_
      especially Silvan Language' (17:127). It contained, inter alia, two
      pages that may be drafts of a letter to a reader (17:127). It seems
      obviously connected to the 'typed sheet' above, but it is not clear
      where it was placed.

      9) Three articles numbered consecutively, though later reordered.
      Written on paper from the same writing-pad as that used for the article
      on PHAN and "probably at one time kept in the same cardboard folder" as
      it (17:110).

      9A) Article on 'Comparative in Eldarin', first version (17:90).
      9B) Article on 'Comparative in Eldarin', revised version (17:90–94).
      9D) Article on 'Ambar, umbar, Turambar' (17:104–110).
      9C) Article on 'and' (17:70–72).
      9E) Drafts of the article on Ambar &c: 'Umbar and Ambar' (17:123–124);
      MBAR 'settle' (17:163-164), 'English "settle"' (17:164). The first of
      these drafts was begun on the sheet containing the ending of the article
      on 'and', so presumably placed together with it.
      9F) Placed with the previous drafts was a note on Rhovanion (17:78).

      Thanks to the clarifications from Mr. Gilson in lambengolmor message 1045, the following can be added to my list: 10) Notes on Names (NN; 17:6, 17:29, 17:118),
      Message 2 of 2 , Jan 6, 2008
        Thanks to the clarifications from Mr. Gilson in lambengolmor message
        1045, the following can be added to my list:

        10) Notes on Names (NN; 17:6, 17:29, 17:118), a gathering of pages
        paper-clipped together, the last page of which was dated 'Oct. 1957'.

        10A) On the first page of the gathering was a note beginning 'I think
        names Fingon, Fingolfin, Finrod, Felagund, Inglor, &c' (17:118); and

        (17:182), ON/NO (17:170), KHIN (17:157). Apparently on the back of this
        page was a note on various names ending 'Don't like Felagund' (17:117-118).

        10B) A page with the actual heading 'Notes on Names', and with notes on
        the Q word for 'Green' and Legolas (17:84).

        'Fingon : Turgon?' (17:113-114), and the first of the notes on Ídril

        10D) "Another page in NN" with the second of the notes on Idril
        (17:112); Turgond- and Felagund (17:112); the 'Problem of -rod'
        (17:118–119). Further to this there were notes on 'Fingon, a poor name'
        (17:112-113), leading into notes on Turgon, Turgond, TUR (17:113), with
        'a genealogical chart of the descendants of Finwe' (17:119; not
        published, unless it is the chart of father and son reproduced on page 113).

        10E) A page with notes on the sons of Finwe (17:39); curu (17:83); and
        (apparently) the notes on DEL (17:151), SPIN (17:185), PHIN (17:181).

        10F) A sheet with notes on Gondolin (17:29), Dor-lómin and Hithlum (not
        published in PE 17).

        10G) A page with a note 'Some corrections of nomenclature' (17:139–140).

        10H) Next to the previous page was a sheet with a note 'In Sindarin the
        old words ...' (17:140) and a paradigm of Sindarin forms (17:46). Back:
        derivatives of _edelo_ (17:141).

        10I) Notes on _kwenede_ and other forms (17:141). Back: 'Noldor: called
        dúnelt' &c (17:142).

        (17:155); IT/ITH (17:156); KIN, KIT (17:157).
