Hello Onónion,

Trotter found that the British Library had posted digital versions of these recordings online for you to listen to - I just reconfirmed that the links work (the below forum post was made way back in 2006)

Has anyone ever heard the two parts (At the tobacconist's and Wireless) that Tolkien has recorded for this course?
I have the course, but I haven't got the equipment to play the bakelite records.

Thanks for the update Wayne, and I hope you had a great trip to Boston. I know I cannot wait to see the Pauline Baynes book (and of course an update to the Bibliography).

My own (very hasty) thought on the letters is: if it is published in a book (or catalog or other paper form) then it gets tracked in the bibliography (book). If it is only on the web, then a website that tracks where to find these seems most appropriate. Basically, for ephemeral websites, i feel a website is the best (and most dynamic) way to keep track.

That, or having the Biblography list all known letters would also be quite useful, even if there is no printed form to see the letter other than the letter itself.

Or......

To be fair, though, Tolkien himself described LotR as a trilogy.

Only, it seems, out of politeness when replying to others who had misused the term. Otherwise, he commented to Rayner Unwin that trilogy 'is not really accurate' when applied to The Lord of the Rings (Letters, p. 184), and to Houghton Mifflin that 'the book is not of course a "trilogy"' (Letters, p. 221). Christina and I have also run across a similar plea by Tolkien in the Houghton Mifflin archive, that the publisher please not use 'trilogy' in a Lord of the Rings jacket blurb.

Sorry to take so long replying to your comment, Khamul, it came in just as Christina and I went to Boston for a few days, mainly to spend time with the Houghton Mifflin archive at Harvard - research for both a second edition Bibliography and for our book on Pauline Baynes.

Actually, there was no compression in the first edition. St Paul's published everything I sent them, though with longer lines and tighter leading than I wanted (to compensate for a text much longer than they expected). I think, though, that these days an even greater amount of detail is wanted than was common in author bibliographies in 1993. I don't expect to change the format appreciably, or to do any renumbering except where I now know the entries to be reversed in date order; but I may rethink how to approach the very complicated Section G (Translations), and I'm not sure what to do about Dii (Separately Published Letters and Excerpts) since so much of that kind of material is now 'published' on ephemeral web sites.
