Found this book on Amazon The Legend of a Hero Beowulf Illustrated by John Howe Retold by Nicky Raven.

I bought the slipcased version and the illustrations from John are fantastic as always and very reminiscent of his Tolkien work.

The Professor gets a brief mention at the end in John's notes on the book.

Microsoft have been assisting libraries with scanning of books that are now out of copyright at books.live.com.

I did a search for Tolkien and found that a copy of "A Middle English Vocabulary" has been scanned and is free to download as a PDF file, you can also search the book as it has been run through OCR software.

I don't own this book, so it is very nice to be able use it as a reference book.

You can download it here.

When I bought this I was asked to keep it a secret, but Nigel has put the secret recording mentioned earlier in these posts on Ebay, which puts it in the public domain.

It is limited to 10 copies (2 must be left) and I thought it was definitely one of the most interesting recordings from The Inklings Archives.

Microphones in Middle-Earth

'Microphones in Middle-Earth', a CD of talks given at Church House, Westminster, in March 1981, on the BBC radio dramatisation of Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings'. Speakers are: Brian Sibley and Michael Bakewell, co-adapters; Penny Leicester, co-producer; Stephen Oliver, composer; David Collings, actor (Legolas), and Peter Woodthorpe, actor (Gollum). The original recording was made by Nigel Sustins, then Manager of Church House Bookshop (on tape, converted to digital format).

You can use the Internet Archive or WayBack machine, you can normally see the text of the sites but it does not keep images.

I am hoping that the corrections go into the new version of the book and they can find time to update the Bibliography.

Sigi,

Normally with these books, only the spine is brown from sunlight, a 50% brown dust jacket is not in fine condition.

Regards

Totter
