This is a 36-page booklet, of which 5-1/2 pages are devoted to Tolkien. The biographical text by Roy Thomas adds a little local history to what can be had from other sources, mainly Carpenter, and has some inaccuracies. It is accompanied by 5 small modern black and white photos of Tolkien's grandparents' homes in Church and Ashfield roads; the Tolkien home at Gracewell; and the Tolkiens' homes in Alcester and Westfield roads.

We found our copy a few years ago on Abebooks. The two currently on that site are relatively expensive, one ridiculously so at $219!
