or if you did not get the bargain above in the three times it was sold, how about this, third time you sold it would be over £1000.

Missed this last November when it first came out

"Brian Sibley, author of over 100 hours of radio drama and presenter of hundreds of radio documentaries comes on the show to talk about his work for The Hobbit movie guide in the run up to the release of film 2 on the 13th December 2013.
Brian is widely known as the author of many movie 'making of' books, including those for the Harry Potter series and The Lord of the Rings so to get him in a room talking with Publisher of The Hobbit David Brawn was an audible treat. For all you fans out there in preparation for the The Desolation of Smaug here's a very rare and poignant interview about this great man's work and passion.
"

Brian firstly discusses how he was introduced to Tolkien and talks about the excellent BBC radio drama series of the Lord of the Rings. He then offers his insight into Peter Jackson and primarily his adaption of the Hobbit.

It surprises me that this information is not easier to find, especially given an author with such a high profile.


Welcome to the site, Stu pointed you towards the excellent www.tolkienbooks.net which, fortunately for us, makes this information very easy to find.

I would also recommend the Descriptive Bibliography and you can also find more information about this book at the same site.

"Martin Wainwright asks who guards literary reputations after a writer dies? With Andrew Motion. From July 2003."

Includes Humphrey Carpenter talking about his Tolkien biography (starts at 7:50 into the programme and finishes at about 10:20).

I think you can listen to this world wide on the BBC iPlayer.

Not a 1976 Deluxe Hobbit.

eBay Item #331261790772

"This book is in near perfect condition, the only sign of wear is a slight fading of the authors name on the spine which can be seen in the photos.

The book comes without a box which has unfortunately been lost. There is no damage to any of the pages and the hard cover is free from dents/scratches.

This is a rare 1st edition collectors item, please see the link for an example of this edition on the jonkers rare book site: https://www.jonkers.co.uk/products/detail/productid/5185

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to see more photographs, happy bidding. Please note: There is a fixed reserve of £50 on this item.

Official description:

"Deluxe edition. First edition in this deluxe format. Black buckram with dragon embossed on upper cover in white, gold and red. Colour frontis, 7 colour plates and 6 black and white plates. Double page map"

I reserve the right to end this auction early/at any time.
"

The copy of the page below gives it away, not from 1976, the link to Jonkers appears to be a 1976 Hobbit, not the 4th Impression 1986 Hobbit as in the case.
