Doesn't come up that often sensibly priced as a BIN, so may be of interest to someone

I bought a copy from Amazon and it has the text missing as in the article, they must have got this wrong on a huge number of copies of the UK book.

Interesting to see if the replacement copy states it is is a 1/1st printing, which clearly it is not.

"Ever wondered how to make an Archive on 4? Here's your chance to find out!

Alan Dein enters the strange world of instructional records where you can teach yourself just about anything - from yodelling to training your budgie to talk.

It all started in 1901 when Polish émigré Jacques Roston harnessed the new technology of sound recording to teach foreign languages, signing up such luminaries as George Bernard Shaw and JRR Tolkien to lend their support.

By the 50s and 60s you could buy LPs on how to do just about anything - from keep fit to playing a musical instrument, relaxation and passing your driving test.

Perhaps the most surprising are those which help you to train your pet budgerigar to talk - with help from Sparkie, Britain's favourite budgie, who supposedly had a vocabulary of over 500 words.

With help from Sparkie, Alan Dein tells the story of instructional records and, along the way, reveals a few of the secrets of how to make an Archive on 4.

Producer: Laurence Grissell. BBC Radio 4 8pm UK Time 18th July 2015

What is the illustrated Collector's Edition you are referring to? I only have the three volume set of the two being discussed here but my first impression is that it is so large it is hard to manage in the hand.


The slipcased, illustrated one volume edition is the one linked to in the OPs post (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lord-Rings-To ... rd+of+the+rings+slipcased).

The *un*illustrated collector's edition I suggested avoiding is this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobbit-Rings- ... d+of+the+rings+collectors


A agree with you that the illustrated editions are generally too large. They certainly aren't my first choice.
