I know some of our members have an interest in A.A. Milne and the fantastic illustrator E.H. Shepard and may be interested in the following.

Peter Harrington is very pleased to announce the exhibition and sale of the most comprehensive collection of Winnie-the-Pooh books and artwork ever assembled. Including more than one hundred items gathered together over twenty years by American football legend Pat McInally, the collection includes fine examples of all the Pooh books, important inscribed copies, correspondence and photos, toys, and original artwork. This is not only the best Pooh collection ever to come to market, but a superb example of the art of collecting, and everything that a lifetime collection in a single field should be. Illustrated below are some of the highlights, including the stand-out piece, a presentation copy of Winnie-the-Pooh inscribed from Milne to both Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. An exhibition of the material will be held in our gallery at 100 Fulham Road from Wednesday the 30th of November to Wednesday the 14th of December. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and paper and digital copies of the catalogue can be obtained by contacting us.

"An exploration of J.R.R Tolkien’s works, his Welsh inspirations and his influence on others

Buckland Hall, a stunning Victorian mansion in the heart of the Welsh borders, opens its doors on Sunday 11th December, 2011 to celebrate everything J.R.R Tolkien. Learn about the great fantasy writer in front a roaring fire, enjoying a glass of mulled wine in friendly company.

This perfect pre-Christmas evening will provide the chance to explore and celebrate Tolkien’s works; guests will discover how Wales inspired his plots and creations, and hear from contemporary writers on how his work has influenced them.

Guest speakers include: Dr Dimitra Fimi, author of Tolkien, Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits and lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University (formerly UWIC); Catherine Fisher, highly acclaimed children’s fantasy novelist, author of The Oracle Trilogy, Incarceron and Sapphique, and recently named Young People’s Laureate of Wales; and Stephen Walsh, historical and Tolkien-inspired artist whose illustrations have appeared in Harper Collins’ Lord of the Rings postcard collection and the ‘Middle Earth Collectible Card Game’ by Iron Crown Enterprises.

Entry is by pre-booked ticket only and all tickets are non-refundable. A welcome glass of mulled wine and light supper snacks are included in the ticket price of £16 per person (£13 for Welsh Academy Members). Arrival at 5.30 pm for a 6pm prompt start.

There is an option to stay overnight at Buckland Hall and make full use of the facilities. Accommodation is an additional £35pp (shared room) or £55pp for a private room. The accommodation price includes breakfast the following morning.

For further information or to book a ticket, please contact Nia Harries at Buckland Hall (01874) 730330 or email admin@bucklandhall.co.uk. This event is supported by Literature Wales.

The magazine is also only for book buying staff at Waterstones (the only big bookseller chain left in the United Kingdom, hence the exclusivity) and was not available to the general public.
