Re: Books on George Allen, GA&U and Unwin Brothers

I recall there are some references to Tolkien outside of the two chapters given to his publishing history, too.

"Rayner sent most of the copies to friends, relations, and former Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman employees, leaving the remainder to Merlin for sale. "

Crikey! I feel privileged to have been able to secure a copy. (probaly at Oxonmoot). I had rather hoped I'd be able to ask Rayner to sign my copy at the next O/Moot, but sadly he passed away not long after. I was one of the TS group who attended his memorial service, at the Stationers Hall, in Ludgate Hill, London, in March 2001.
