Seconded - I really hope they do another printing; I will certainly be in the queue to purchase one if they do.

Yes it does


Anyone of course has the right to be offended by something or not approve of something. My point was about the human tendency to make presumptions regarding what the dead might think (if they weren't dead). IMHO, this process involves attributing our own opinions to the dead in order to bolster the validity of said opinions. Surely it is enough to say "*I* do not approve", rather than "Tolkien would not have approved" and let that opinion stand on its own merit.

In the case of this bridge, given the utter and total crap that his been (willingly) licensed in Tolkien's name, I hardly think a bridge (which is presumably a useful thing to those who will cross it) is worth getting too worried about. I imagine the estate would weigh in and kill their party anyway.

Just my two-cents (or pennies) - it isn't my intent to offend any of the living

Recently i came across this catalog which contains some items that might be of interest.

In the main section of the catalog it has a signed Hobbit and a copy of ongs for the Philologists, but the most interesting thing is the last section containinh books from Tolkien's personal library.

Thirty-two books are listed, most signed with annotations including books given to Tolkien from E. V. Gordon and G. B. Smith.

The annotations are briefly mentioned, no pictures are produced unfortunately.

The catalog is from 2002 and is worth a look.

I'm slightly confused. When I go to Book Depository it's still down as "pre-order", with 1st August as publication day. "16 days to go" it declares...

Book Depository: Arda Reconstructed

Am I looking in the wrong place or something?
