I have done some more research into this and the digital copies of the sound recordings on the British Library web site are under copyright by the British Library and Linguaphone, the copyright on this digital recording runs out in 2059. As they own the copyright on this digital copy then they can restrict its use to streaming only. I wrote to the British Library and asked them to make it available for streaming outside of the UK and it looks like they have done that, you can stream it from the US at any rate now.

The interesting point as I made earlier is that the original 78 record from 1929 is out of copyright, under UK law it expired in 1979 fifty years after that recording was made, and because it is out of copyright anyone who has access to the original record can make copies including a digital copy. If this digital copy was assigned a license such as Creative Commons License then this copy could be made available to anyone and for instance hosted on archive.org or possibly on the Tolkien Collector's Guide

Is anyone on the board able to make a digital copy of these two tracks from the original 78?

No provenance as usual but also I have never seen a real signature where Tolkien signed directly under his printed name.

I'd like to think that The Professor's books are in there somewhere.

and I also like that even with a Library this big he has the same problem as the rest of us and has piled up books on his chair

Thanks for posting this

I have seen lots of the Bookcase Shop Taiwan "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" in US copied DJ's but did not know that they also ripped off "The Silmarillion".

Did the Tolkien Estate/George Allen & Unwin/Unwin Hyman/Harper Collins/Houghton Mifflin ever take action against this outfit?

Another "Leather" Guild Lord of the Rings.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-lord-of-the ... 22eb&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

"You are looking at

The lord of the rings

By J.R.R. Tolkien

This is a Full leather bound edition, printed by Guild Publishing.

No damage to guilding what so ever.

spine undamaged, no corner knocks,

leather
in a good condition."

This is amazing as the book has no leather whatsoever.

"No mark ink markings on pages,

All my books are kept on there sides, so no shelf lean!

Book will be very well protected, when sent through post."

I think the "leather" may disappear in the post.

I am very disappointed that the general public can not tell if a book has a paper cover (as this one does) or a leather cover, surely anyone would know the difference, though this Hobbit Seller doesn't
