Why isn't The History of the Hobbit/ The Art of the Hobbit listed with Tolkien's other work in the list of Tolkien's work found at the start of the other books? Can't Post

Both are authorised by the Tolkien Estate and both actually contain his writing/images, but the History of the Hobbit (2007) isn't listed in my 2009 edition of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun (I have the 2011 edition of the H.O.T.H and it dosen't even have the list of the other books) , and whilst browsing a local book shop the other day I happened across the new paperback edition of The Legend Of Sigurd and Gudrun (2012), the Fall of Arthur was listed even though it isn't out yet!, but The Art of the Hobbit (2012) wasn't.

I live in the UK so I'm not sure about other Countries editions-the H.O.T.H was an American book so could it be a copyright thing?

Not the most exciting of enquiries I know, but this has confused me for a while. Can someone clear this up?

‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Perhaps the most fascinating Individual in Middle Earth

                    Tolkien was indeed an editor Findegil Send a private message to Findegil Mar 16 2013, 12:13pm
                        It is perfectly valid to separate editorial work from authorship Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Mar 16 2013, 2:00pm
                            You may combine the two Findegil Send a private message to Findegil Mar 16 2013, 6:08pm
