There are six 'Inklings Archives' in total. The TS releases (of which there are only two; covering only Tolkien) are essentially the same except they are stand alone releases (there is no suggestion of there being six); also simply called 'Church House Archives' (see TSTrading catalogue).

Facets of Tolkien (Inklings Archive #2; same title) is identical in both formats. Tolkien & the Inklings by TS incorporates Carpenter & Shippey from two seperate 'Inklings Archives' (#3 & #4); it also includes a recording of Barbara Strachey (Author of Journeys of Frodo...) not included in any of the six 'Inklings Archives'.

'Inklings Archives' #1, #5 & #6 contain no specific Tolkien related material (#2 is exclusively Tolkien; #3 & #4 contain some Tolkien material as mentioned above).

Additionally, the 'Inklings Archives' are limited in number (TS releases are not). Contact Nigel Sustins for more details; & for another very interesting item...

Since the second signature is unobtainable now, thought I would point out this auction I just ran across.

Unaffiliated with seller.

For those who care, just ran across (and so added to the database) the CliffsNotes website for LOTR and The Hobbit.

Not affiliated with this seller in any way, just an interesting item for you Hobbit collectors. I just saw this on Ebay today:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140077232116

From the auction description: "The Israeli airforce distributed copies of the book among its officers, accompanied by a letter from the Head of Personnel Dept. in the Air-Force command. This 1st edition copy still has the original letter inside."

It is one of the more interesting Hobbit translations out there (I think).

The Tolkien Society are selling unlimited editions of the Tolkien material. Their first disc is identical to 'Facets of Tolkien;'; their second disc contains Tom Shippey (from 'Archives 4.), Humphrey Carpenter/Dr Havard (from 'Archives 3.) and an extra short talk by Barbara Strachey which is only found on the TS disc.
