Breakfast & Tolkien

Research has found that we should never miss breakfast, but why? Plus, John Garth, award-winning author of ‘Tolkein(sic) and the Great War’, tells us about the author’s time at war.


Starts at 1 hour and 44 mins

I have asked HC about this edition, will post if they are able to give any additional information on numbers, etc. , but this was 25 years ago and they may not have the records any more.



I think this was around the time that DB had said that some of the Hardbacks of HoME were only selling 25 or so copies a year. I wonder if UT had also dropped to such low levels?


HC don't have any information on this edition in their files, http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=64240

You should have posted this under the Wonders of thread, it is there for these overpriced posts

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... hp?topic_id=1048&forum=15

But it does seem to be a proof edition of the FOTR.

I was born in Sittingbourne in Kent, though moved when I was 6 months old, so never went to that school, but was interested in seeing this article

http://www.kentonline.co.uk/sittingbo ... ic-takes-pride-of-126350/

A book found by a pupil that appears to have been signed by Roald Dahl became the star attraction at the reopening of a school’s library.

The copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, complete with a message from the author, was spotted on a classroom bookshelf at Grove Park Primary by an eagle-eyed boy a few months ago.

It has remained under lock and key ever since as copies can sell for hundreds of pounds.


But saddened by what the school has done with it, not good to do that to paperback :(

It is nice to see Tevildo, the Prince of Cats, and Huan and Lúthien as well, illustrated by Alan Lee
