Poole Tolkien Artifacts on Display Soon
http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2008/ ... rtifacts-on-display-soon/

Writer's voices: listen to rare recordings from the British Library
"JRR Tolkien, interviewed in the Randolph Hotel in Oxford, has an amiably wheezy, pipe-smoking laugh, and is not nearly so much the old curmudgeon you might imagine. He talks like a rambling but enthusiastic old don, in overlapping half-sentences, stopping to add incoherent footnotes to his observations and going off at unexpected tangents with such breakneck speed, they threaten to give you aural whiplash. The underlying melancholy of the man, and his profound nostalgia and dislike of the modern world are evident, too; for instance, when he casually observes that the world of his boyhood, rural Warwickshire in the 1890s, was far closer to the England of Shakespeare than to the England of 'today', 1965. A remarkable thought, but probably true. "

Thanks for that, Jeremy, Deagol.

I have put up a few more items today - less valuable, maybe, but no less unusual!

I have just posted five Tolkien items on eBay, including three Silmarillions. More items (although, alas, no more Silmarillions) will follow soon. Seller ID there is wellinghall

At present, no-one in the US is selling it. It is so expensive because, at around 850 A4 pages, it is very heavy; the extra cost to the US is all taken up by mailing costs, I'm afraid.
