Still trying to find out where to get copies, and I have been told that it is limited to 100 copies (about two thirds of these have already been sold).

I agree we are both strange people and were in the room with you.

John Garth's talk today was excellent, and he has produced a booklet called Tolkien at Exeter College, which has a lot of previously unpublished material, pictures and Tolkien manuscript pages from just before WW1.

You may also want to have a look at Longfellow's Hiawatha in relation to a certain bird and the death of a dragon from one of Tolkien's books.

The booklet is mentioned on John's website, and I will try to find out how interested members can buy a copy from John and post here.

Great news

"A FRAUDSTER who sold books with forged signatures of some of Britain’s most famous people from his Hampshire home has been ordered to pay back more than £33,000 of his illgotten gains.

Allan Formhals will have to sell his home in Carrington Lane, Milford-on-Sea, in order to pay back for the “criminal lifestyle” he led while selling books containing the forged signatures of notable figures such as Sir Winston Churchill, Elizabeth I and Oliver Cromwell, a court heard.

The seller has an annoying bit of moving text on the listing stating that it is Tolkien's original cover, no it is not, that now belongs to the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and at the moment is on tour in New York.

A lot of changes were made on the cover, by 1963, from Tolkien's original cover.

This text starts on the third line of page 66 in Tolkien's essay On Fairy-Stories in the book Essays presented to Charles Williams (Oxford University Press 1947).
