Just watched the latest Antiques Roadshow and an American woman calls her wrought iron French item from 1925 The Hobbit Tree and says that it was well before the "trilogy ever came out", which is true but very hard to argue that it influenced the books.

Neil has only taken down the pages served by a Database on his site, though the main page www,tolkienbooks,net still contains infected code so do not visit that page.

Some of the articles were not served by the database so are still available. Be very careful when clicking on the links in left menu and the menu at the bottom of the screen as some of the links point to pages containing the malware, but the links in the main body of these pages are all ok.


The Early Publishing History of the Lord of the Rings Updated Dec07 - A series of articles that will, when completed, trace the publishing history of The Lord of the Rings, from Tolkien's attempts to secure the publication of both LotR and The Silmarillion in the early 1950s through to the publication of the Second Edition in the mid-1960s.

Tolkien's Languages and Alphabets Updated Dec07 - A chronological listing of articles that reproduce previously unpublished notes and essays concerning Tolkien’s invented languages and alphabets.

Notes on The History of Middle-earth Updated Jan08 - A series of articles covering various aspects of the HoMe series.

Tolkien Calendars Updated Dec08 - An illustrated guide to “official” British calendars from 1974 to the present.

Nasty Tricksy Hobbits Updated Oct05 - Not all signatures are what they seem to be.

Christopher Tolkien: A Chronological Bibliography Updated Dec07 - An extensive listing of the published works of J.R.R. Tolkien’s youngest son.

The Princess Hobbits Updated Jul07 - Details of the only abridged version of The Hobbit - a serialisation in Princess magazine.

Tolkien: The Esperantist? Updated Jul05 - Esperanto is a “man-made” language, so was naturally of interest to the Professor.

Songs for the Philologists Updated Jul07 - Details of Tolkien’s contributions to this very rare booklet.

Unpublished Tolkien Manuscript Found? Updated Jul07 - An article from The Sunday Times about Tolkien’s translation of Beowulf followed by a related article by Michael Drout.

I think I've got a Hobbit Updated Jul07 - A Collector’s Tale.

Sadly, it looks like tolkienbooks.net is no more as I got this email from Neil.

Hello Andrew, Tolkienbooks.net is offline and will probably remain so indefinitely as I do not have time to sort it out. Regards, Neil
