It's been on and off eBay for some time. Appears to find no buyer (I'd say the price is a bit intimidating)!

Edit: speaking about the trolls (as we say in Swedish): the book is now sold!


It has been on ebay for a long time, good luck to the buyer

Speak german?

Release: these days


Great, but how many people still have a record player, I don't, is this a German translation or is it English?

Very interesting article by John Garth

John also has a time limited request in the article, which finishes on the 30th September.

"The manuscripts of Tolkien’s deeply influential lecture ‘On Fairy-stories’ include a striking anecdote in which that great proponent of Faërie, the author, recalls being put in his place by a small, thoroughly scientifically-minded boy. It is an entertaining little nugget, but I would suggest that it is more than that: it identifies a moment in the author’s life which encapsulated for him, even some thirty years later, the defining idea behind his legendarium: that fairy-stories are not solely or primarily for children. Here I not only reveal the identity of the boy, but also provide photographs of both child and garden, while offering some thoughts on the date of the incident."

Nice to meet you as well as garm and deagol as always.

Great event, the highlight for me was the exhibition at the Bodleian, http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/bodley/w ... ts/2013/may/magical-books

It was great to see so many original Tolkien items on display.

The publisher provided copies do appear to all be standard edition only (though I have not asked HC to confirm this yet).

Not mentioning the deluxe copies she will sign this weekend and moving forward...


The 100 'exclusive' copies are all Trade copies, but Jemima has signed some Deluxe copies as well, which may appear at a later date.
