Just watched the latest Antiques Roadshow and an American woman calls her wrought iron French item from 1925 The Hobbit Tree and says that it was well before the "trilogy ever came out", which is true but very hard to argue that it influenced the books.

Hello V1nyl -

These records have always fascinated me, and I have not ever seen all of them in one place much less in mint state. However, I would risk certain divorce at a minimum (and possible loss of life or limb) were I to collect any more Tolkien items (other than the calendars.) But my perception is that you have posted in the right place. If anyone here has an interest (or knows of someone who does), you will get a reply.

Thanks for posting this.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

TolkienBooks.net has been attacked by hackers.

A great deal of damage has been done and will take time to repair. All of the compromised pages have now been deleted.

The front end of the site and most of An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography are out of action for the time being, but will hopefully be back online later in the year when Wheelbarrows at Dawn is finished and "real" world commitments are less.

The Articles Section is for the most part unaffected, although some of the links to the Bibliography are broken and the articles on print numbers for early Hobbits are down.

The TolkienBooks.net Bookstore is also still operational, although the homepage has lost its formatting.

This is the third time the site has been attacked, despite added security. I think it is down to the Wordpress-powered front end, so I may look for another way to do things.

Neil has only taken down the pages served by a Database on his site, though the main page www,tolkienbooks,net still contains infected code so do not visit that page.

Some of the articles were not served by the database so are still available. Be very careful when clicking on the links in left menu and the menu at the bottom of the screen as some of the links point to pages containing the malware, but the links in the main body of these pages are all ok.


The Early Publishing History of the Lord of the Rings Updated Dec07 - A series of articles that will, when completed, trace the publishing history of The Lord of the Rings, from Tolkien's attempts to secure the publication of both LotR and The Silmarillion in the early 1950s through to the publication of the Second Edition in the mid-1960s.

Tolkien's Languages and Alphabets Updated Dec07 - A chronological listing of articles that reproduce previously unpublished notes and essays concerning Tolkien’s invented languages and alphabets.

Christopher Tolkien: A Chronological Bibliography Updated Dec07 - An extensive listing of the published works of J.R.R. Tolkien’s youngest son.

The Princess Hobbits Updated Jul07 - Details of the only abridged version of The Hobbit - a serialisation in Princess magazine.

Tolkien: The Esperantist? Updated Jul05 - Esperanto is a “man-made” language, so was naturally of interest to the Professor.
