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.

I checked my copy, along with the standard HC Deluxe and HM Deluxe editions (upon which the signed, limited edition is based), and the bookmarks are all identically frayed for the first 10mm or so. I think that's just the way they are supposed to be, so I wouldn't get too worried about it....

Cheers

Here is the latest that is available for pre-order. I do like the miniature costuming that they use on these premium figures!

From the website description: "The Aragorn Premium Format figure is a stunning 1:4 scale museum quality piece. Sword in hand, Aragorn stands 20 inches tall atop the display base, captured in the heat of the battle at Amon Hen. The body of each figure is cast in high-quality polystone, then hand-finished and hand-painted, and then dressed in an amazing miniature replica of the costume, constructed of real fabrics and leathers. The base is individually hand-numbered for authenticity. This stunning figure is the ultimate representation of Aragorn, and an outstanding addition to any The Lord of the Rings collection - reserve yours today!"
