My father in law is translating LotR into Latin, and he has sent me this email -


Have got as far as "The Road to Isengard", and find that glittering eyes watched the riders wanly from the shadows of the banks. "Wanly" seems almost impossible, especially when combined with "glittering". There is no comment from Hammond & Scull. I have translated it "pallidi", but am very unhappy with it. Do you think it could be a misprint for "warily"? I know from bitter experience how easy it is to confuse "ri" and "n"!


Any ideas?

Glad you reopened this thread. I actually made two mistakes in bidding on the auction. 1. I was confused, no doubt, and thought it was one of the earlier copies. (was not).

Also entered US Dollars bid, but forgot the auction was in BPS. Not the first time that's happened!! Can get a little expensive when you drop the conversion.

I recall there are some references to Tolkien outside of the two chapters given to his publishing history, too.


Almost every chapter apart from the first, has references to Tolkien, most have a lot of references. I think that a reprinting of this book should happen, because it is such a fantastic book.

"Rayner sent most of the copies to friends, relations, and former Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman employees, leaving the remainder to Merlin for sale. "

Crikey! I feel privileged to have been able to secure a copy. (probaly at Oxonmoot). I had rather hoped I'd be able to ask Rayner to sign my copy at the next O/Moot, but sadly he passed away not long after. I was one of the TS group who attended his memorial service, at the Stationers Hall, in Ludgate Hill, London, in March 2001.
