It appears that the British Library have now placed these recordings on their web site as they are out of copyright (1929).

I thought these were the only two recordings with Tolkien on them but they also list another two recordings (these seem to be in error as Tolkien does not appear to be on either recording). UPDATE The two recordings below are no longer listed as by Tolkien.

I thought this one might appeal to Stu as the books are upside down in the picture though the slipcase is the right way up

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-L ... b1cc&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

Though on my copy the original purchaser decided to put a lot of sellotape on the slipcase, it has not gone brown yet but it's only a matter of time

Anyone have any "miracle" cures for the evil that is called "sellotape" in the UK?

Listed as a hardcover re-issue from 2004 (note the 40 cards instead of the standard 20 as well). No image available, and no copies for sale. Not sure if this exists, haven't seen any copies on the used market either.


I'm convinced that this was a Postcard book that was going to be released but never was, it would have been on eBay if it came out

"What a bargain!!!
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/J-R-R-TOLKIEN-P ... 2|39%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50"


The seller has updated his listing but it still makes no sense and reads like a Nigerian 419 email (ALL IN CAPS), I can't find any sale on Beren's site at the prices quoted.

"NB - BEING AN ORIGINAL LIMITED EDITION THE LAST SALE OF THE SAME BOOK SOLD FOR $950 {£600} THROUGH THE TOLIEN (sic) LIBRARY.CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE-

I,M (sic) NOT GOING TO PUSH THIS SALE- ITS (sic) A GOOD SALE PRICE - MY ITEMS ON EBAY NEED TO FIND THE RIGHT BUYER- AND IT (sic) WILL "


Update - The text above has now been removed from the listing, I assume the seller looks at this site, as they also keep changing the price (need to reduce it to 10% to get a sale though)

However, my total also comes to six because I have in addition 'The Brothers Hildebrandt - Their Tolkien Art'(Running Press, 2001).

Twelve postcards; and, they're magnetic!


As I only collect UK editions, for me these don't count, but it may be useful to document any non UK Postcard Books
