A bit more information on the exhibition.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth

1 June-28 October 2018
Weston Library, Oxford

This exhibition will explore the full breadth of Tolkien’s unique literary imagination from his creation of Middle-earth, the imagined world where The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and his other works are set, to his life and work as an artist, poet, medievalist and scholar of languages.

For the first time since the 1950s, an unprecedented array of Tolkien materials from the UK and the USA will be reunited in Oxford and displayed together in this seminal exhibition. Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth will feature manuscripts, artwork, maps, letters and artefacts from the Bodleian’s foremost Tolkien Archive, the Tolkien Collection at Marquette University in the USA and from private collections. The exhibition will delight both Tolkien fans as well as scholars, families and visitors of all ages.

Nice to see that the Chairman of the Tolkien Society agrees with my views on this.
