The BBC showed 11 regional episodes of a programme called the Books that Made Britain. One of the episodes was entitled 'Factories to Middle Earth(sic)' and Tolkien was mentioned from 22:50 onwards.

Always nice to see Sarehole Mill on the TV, and you can watch it here (UK only), http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/ ... factories-to-middle-earth

Though does not look to have been researched very well, seriously wrong on the number of The Lord of the Rings that have been sold.

I have not watched all 11 of these, but I did like the North West of England episode, which features Arthur Ransome, a writer that Tolkien and his children, liked very much.

Where has this price come from, only 11 times the current Amazon price.

But let's see... I'm also curious what the motif will be, and if there will be any "extras" to fill out the book, because, as I've learned on here, it is actually pretty thin, even thinner than The Fall of Arthur. I wonder if "Kullervo" would even fit on the spine.


I have no idea how HarperCollins will fit "The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun" onto a very, very thin spine when it appears as a deluxe edition.

I don't think "Kullervo" will have any any "extras" but will be exactly the same text as the trade edition.

I am sure that "Kullervo" will fit on the spine if you use a very small font size

I think I will start putting listings up like this for future new releases, any other resellers that should be included?
