Another item was on this weekend, 2 Tolkien letters from 1956, about 14:30 minutes into the episode.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/ ... 9-16-bbc-caversham-park-1

The 5th November 1956 letter is in Hammond & Scull Chronology (page 496) but the 11th November 1956 is not listed as yet.

I have this chess set with the board.

I have not posted this set for sale but am wondering if anyone has any idea on the value. It has been stored and is in very good condition, minor wear.

Oh I knew Petri Tikka back in the day. We got acquainted back in 2007 on the Tolkien.co.uk forums that were there when the new COH book was released.

We've lost touch in the years since, but I'll definitely give this a watch.

Eru Ilúvatar is a story about the hidden symbolism behind Tolkien´s stories The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion, analysed by a Tolkien specialist, Tolkien language scholar and Lutheran pastor Petri Tikka from Finland. Visually impressive documentary features amazing artworks by well-known Tolkien artist Jef Murray (1960-2015).

Eru Ilúvatar has won several awards in international film festivals.

Finnish broadcasting companies told us that this is not their genré.
So we decided to release this document only in VimeoVOD.

Here is the link to our VimeoVOD page:
https://vimeo.com/ondemand/eru


Some words from Jef Murray RIP

Many thanks for the kind note. I would be delighted to allow the
use of my paintings and/or sketches in your documentary. All I would
require is acknowledgement, and I'd be happy to work with your production team to get you whatever images might best suit the program.

Thanks so much for contacting me and for considering using my
work!!

Nai Eru lye mánata

and later in 2015:
Brava! This is really marvellous! A great, great improvement over the first
translation, plus more polished all 'round. My compliments to you and
everyone else involved with the production!

BR To All J.R.R. Tolkien's and Jef Murray's friends!

The thought of this set being issued in the ongoing Deluxe format did cross my mind. Each of the 10 releases so far have been individually slipcased and a unique color (some of the color choices have baffled me and the upcoming B&L looks to be quite similar to The Hobbit). I hope that if these volumes constitute the 12th, 13th, and 14th books in the series, they will follow suit. They could be boxed like the sets gathering the first 4 and 5 books of the series.


Indeed the thought had crossed my mind over the years too. It would be very nice to have these in the new deluxe format.
