The BBC have used OCR technology on every copy of the UK Radio Times magazine from 1923 to 2009.

Tolkien appears a lot, and possibly some of these recordings were not known about until this resource became available.

There seem to be a lot more adaptions of The Hobbit for the radio than I was aware of

The BBC also have another page that shows the same results from 2009 to today, but this does not seem to work, which is a shame

They bought it for a £1, as in the photos, so paying £195 to buy it should be no problem

They are hardbacks, but you may spot a problem with this set of The Lord of the Rings

Just got the pocket The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, and at the back of the book Mr Bliss is listed as being in the same series i.e. pocket editions. The current Mr Bliss is not a pocket edition, so unless it is a mistake we should see a pocket Mr Bliss as well.

Signed by who?

I have no idea

eBay Item #220984921798

I have referred this to the Tolkien Estate, sadly Alan Formhal's very rubbish fake signatures are better than this junk.
