The talk this Tuesday was videoed and for anybody who was unable to attend, you can see it at the link below, a very good talk from the authors of the recent book.

Interesting - but there's a bit of a blooper here - it says

'Based on earlier designs by Tolkien’s son Christopher, the map was extracted from an edition of The Lord of the Rings in the late 1960s, and served as a working document – used by Tolkien and illustrator Pauline Baynes to develop a new poster depicting Middle-earth'

But of course this map isn't 'based on earlier designs by Christopher' - it was removed from Pauline Baynes's copy of TT; this (and the Mordor map in RK were actually drawn by Christopher (who signed 'em with initials), and it was he who'd tidied up his dad's maps for publication.

"The Bodleian Library has recently acquired a rare, annotated map of Middle-earth, the fantasy world setting for JRR Tolkien’s novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The acquisition was made possible thanks to generous support from the V&A Purchase Grant Fund, the Kenneth Rose Fund and the Friends of the Bodleian."

Khamul, a list of all the Silmarillions we no longer want should be in your inbox by now ...

Silmarillions are being sold? Can I get a list too if K. passes on them?
