Another "Leather" Guild Lord of the Rings.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-lord-of-the ... 22eb&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

"You are looking at

The lord of the rings

By J.R.R. Tolkien

This is a Full leather bound edition, printed by Guild Publishing.

No damage to guilding what so ever.

spine undamaged, no corner knocks,

leather
in a good condition."

This is amazing as the book has no leather whatsoever.

"No mark ink markings on pages,

All my books are kept on there sides, so no shelf lean!

Book will be very well protected, when sent through post."

I think the "leather" may disappear in the post.

I am very disappointed that the general public can not tell if a book has a paper cover (as this one does) or a leather cover, surely anyone would know the difference, though this Hobbit Seller doesn't

We're having our AGM a.k.a. Tolkien Day on Saturday September 12th. That, however is in 's-Hertogenbosch, about one hour by train from Amsterdam. Our custom nowadays is to start the AGM at 11 am, have a long lunch break followed by some sort of creative workshop, or quiz, or auction, before resuming the AGM, and afterwards, at about 6.30 or 7 pm we will have dinner.

But I gather you will be occupied by the IBC programme during daytime. As far as I can see it will be no great problem to organise some sort of meeting in Amsterdam (where I live) on Friday evening, or on Sunday. Even Monday (evening) would be a possibility, but I think would not be as well attended as Sunday. With the AGM on Saturday, Friday evening might not be all that attractive either to people living outside Amsterdam.

The British Library is preventing anyone outside the UK from being able to play these files, though you can still see the rest of the page. Please contact me offline if anyone would like to discuss this issue further.


UK Copyright law for Sound Recordings is 50 years from the date of the recording, so no UK copyright exists on these recordings.

It looks like the British Library have entered into a deal with Linguaphone to use all their archive recordings and have only licensed it for the UK and for streaming not download only.

Thanks for posting these, Trotter. You are correct, it is only the first two recordings in your list that have Tolkien speaking on them.

It appears that the British Library have now placed these recordings on their web site as they are out of copyright (1929).

I thought these were the only two recordings with Tolkien on them but they also list another two recordings (these seem to be in error as Tolkien does not appear to be on either recording). UPDATE The two recordings below are no longer listed as by Tolkien.
