Tolkien Document to go on display

Subject: Tolkien Document to go on display

Hi everyone,

I came across this news posted on theonering.net website, and I thought it might be of interest.

£5m donation to university library

A rare collection of books and artefacts will be open to the public for the first time after a £5million donation was made to the famous Bodleian Library at Oxford University.

Original manuscripts from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein will be among a number of national treasures put on display in a new exhibition hall.

The donation by Julian Blackwell, president of the Blackwell's academic bookshop chain, is the largest yet made to a university library in the UK.

The redevelopment, called the New Bodleian Library, will enable priceless 400-year-old collections, which have previously only been accessible to a limited number of specialist scholars, to be put on permanent public display.
