You can still get the artwork as a poster, but it does not have the exhibition information on it any more:

http://www.bodleianshop.co.uk/j-r-r-tolkien-s-hobbit-poster.html

£6.25

Product Code: PS0067
This poster was created for the Bodleian's 'Tolkien Life and Legend' exhibition, back in 1987. We sell so many, it's still in print over twenty years on! Exclusive to the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford.

It's the Trek Con sticker that makes this worth an order if magnitude (plus) more than its siblings. I guess.

It was recently pointed out to me that an old news article (Signed Lord of the Rings, Reeve's Tale, Manuscript Letters for Auction Sunday Nov 27 in Australia) from 2011 was no longer accessible on in the news archives. Evidently this has been the case since the spam attack here almost two years ago, and I missed it!

It has been fully restored, and hopefully will be of use again to those coming here from external links to it.

Thanks for the link, Trotter! I will give this a watch over the weekend, I hope.

Thanks for the link!

My eye was caught by this paragraph in particular...


Tolkien weaved and hedged and doubled like an old dog fox who had survived seasons of hunting by the Galway Blazers. He left his admirers baying and circling while he was sipping tea at Bournemouth, unwilling to finish his life's work.


I'm pretty sure "unwilling" is not the right word.
