Exeter publishes history of Tolkien's life at Exeter College

Exeter College has published a fascinating 64-page booklet about the life of JRR Tolkien at Exeter College, written by John Garth, acclaimed author of Tolkien and the Great War.

Tolkien at Exeter College: How an Oxford undergraduate created Middle-earth is the story of JRR Tolkien’s life as an undergraduate at Exeter College, from peacetime into war. It is also the tale of how he first created his mythological world in 1914–15.
Rich with archive material and original sketches by Tolkien – some never before seen – Tolkien at Exeter College is essential reading for anyone interested in Tolkien, Oxford, and the histories of Britain and of Middle-earth.

The booklet is available to purchase for £8 from the Development Office. Email development@exeter.ox.ac.uk or call 01865 279619 to purchase a copy today.

Need to do a little research on it so if anyone has any ideas would welcome it.

Did the Tolkien Society have a library somewhere in 1977 ?
or
Has someone just made this up and in which case why?

You see hours of entertainment for £40 !


I asked Charles Noad about this and he thinks it was by the same lady artist who did a cover illustration for his 1977 Tolkien Society booklet 'The Trees, The Jewels, and the Rings'. Charles is trying to find her name.

Certain ebay sellers obviously love to appear in this thread, with the dross that they put out on every description.

A serial, repeat offender has listed another item 1973lee1973.

eBay Item #141399303024

"The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy (sic)

worthy of any collection

would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

The Fellowship Of The Ring - very early 1959 8th Impression - previous owners inscription to FEP, MAP present at back, minor spine lean, dustjacket price clipped and held together with tape as per pics.

The Two Towers - 1962 9th impression - small book shop sticker to REP, MAP present at back, Dustjacket not price clipped, minor spine lean

The Return Of The King - 1962 9th impression - loose spine (from page block), minor spine lean, MAP present, some marks to page edges, FEP,REP. Dustjacket not price clipped.

PLEASE also refer to the pictures as these form part of the descripiton by showing general condition of books. Marks, tears, nicks to Dust Jackets.

worth much more than the asking price - priced for a very quick sale

low starting price, this value only likely to increase with the film release (are we getting new LOTR films?)
"

If you look really, really carefully, you may be able to spot the "Marks, tears, nicks" to the dust jackets
