Update - This book has been cancelled

There is some information available about the book "Wheelbarrows at Dawn: Memories of Hilary Tolkien" by Angela Gardner and Neil Holford (Deagol).

The biography of Hilary Tolkien, brother to Ronald (JRR Tolkien). Sharing their formative years together and then heading into the trenches of The Great War, the book shows the correspondence between the Tolkien brothers and their wives during the war and since, with family photographs and letters. Though about Hilary, this books also sheds light on and brings new information to the world of JRR Tolkien - including the only known instance of a signed photograph by Ronald, and a recent discovery of an original JRRT drawing


The Standard Book is £30 (ISBN 09780955190049), cover shown below, and the Deluxe edition is limited to 250 copies at £75 (ISBN: 09780955190056) from ADC books.

Unfortunately I can't make either show, I have to be in Brazil for work. Fortunately, I get to visit Brazil for the first time...

Anyone in São Paulo that wants to hang out, drop me a line! I will be there the 8th through the 13th (traveling the 14th back home).

I will, of course, be trying to find bookstores while I am there.

I still intend to go to Moreton this year, but have to find out if I can get some accomodation pretty quickly now ...

Oo, That Awful Mr. Wilson

Well, I didn’t think of myself as a collector for a long time. I was just interested in reading everything Tolkien wrote I could lay my hands on, and useful books about his writings, with emphasis on all things "Middle-earth related". From studying Arda, it went to studying developments of the texts, and look at my bookshelves now ...

I think Mr. Menon mistakes the excesses for the essentials of collecting.
