Garm,

Do you have any more info on "Rayner's 'Publishing Tolkien' from Thornton's" as I have not heard of this before?

Hmm. I have only:

The Truth about a Publisher - Sir Stanley Unwin (GA&U)

George Allen & Unwin: A Remembrancer - Rayner Unwin (Merlin Unwin)

The Truth about Publishing - Stanley Unwin (GA&U)

- and Rayner's 'Publishing Tolkien' from Thornton's plus one or two variants in TS publications; though I suspect the gist of all of these is the same, and is taken up in Rayner's Remembrancer, anyway.

Makes me feel rather uneducated; or at least, under-read.

Trotter, yes, that was the David Unwin book I was thinking of - sorry I missed that in your original post.

I will try to find the other two, and give you some more details.

There's one by David Severn (David Unwin; Stanley's son, Rayner's brother), about his life with his father. The title escapes me; it's called something like "Life with my father". I'll try to find my copy.


I think I mentioned that one "Fifty Years with Father: A Relationship - David Unwin (GA&U)"

But I was not aware of the other two. Thanks

And there's a book called "From Swann Sonneschein to George Allen & Unwin", or something like that, which tells of the early days of the company.

And I picked up a Festschrift (sp?) for Stanley Unwin which has a few nuggets in, but it clearly had a v limited print run.
