Hi folks

I seem to remember Thorntons doing de luxe editions of Roverandom, and maybe other books, a few years ago - bound in green leather, limited to 25 copies. Does anyone else remember this? Any more details available?

Thanks

I may not be able to buy it for some weeks. I had the money set aside but I needed to use it. I am sorry if this is a problem, I am still planning on buying it if there are any available in the near future. I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience.

Once again apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi Tobi,

I am pretty sure the copyright page definitely calls out whether it was the "first edition" first published in 1984 or the "second edition" first published in 1999. I don't have copies in front of me right now to compare the two, seems like a good call for an article here on TCG. Anyone have copies of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings and willing to help? Drop me an email or post here with what the copyright page says (or a scan/photo of the copyright page.) Thanks!

Hi,

as we are on the Easton Press issue and you brought it up, is there really no way of telling, what printing/ impression one has?

Thx,
Tobi

Beren has posted a transcript of an interview with Tolkien on his web site http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... en_1971_BBC_Interview.php and mentioned finding these recordings by looking on the Internet.

A good place to start is the New York Times which has quite a lot of Tolkien material including original book reviews, his obituary and a video interview with Raynor Unwin. Be aware that not all the links still work (sadly the Tolkien Audio link does not work, but I think from memory it is the Interview above) but I recommend you take a look.
