Seeing the buzz this publication creates, especially at Facebook, it wouldn't surprise me if the 4,000 print-run will be sold out. For those here who might not have Facebook, by the way, a copy was found at Hodges & Figgis, Dublin.

Like many others here, I now have an estimated arrival date (at Amazon UK): October 05 2016 - October 07.

Have a look here:

http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Index:Interviews_with_J.R.R._Tolkien

It may not be complete or fully correct (it's a wiki), but it's pretty well referenced, so you can use it as a basis for further investigation.

Edit: On a second reading I see you mean "recorded" as in an audio recording, not as in "record"="store information". Anyway -- hope you find something useful!

I have my Hobbit facsimile on a pre-order from Amazon UK -- thanks for all your efforts with the dust jacket, Stu, and for sharing your thoughts here. It's interesting to follow the process (although I have much less time nowadays to spend on the JRRT hobby)! And I recognize dealing with the wife's patience... happy wife, happy life!

Letter up for auction in Sweden (and thus perhaps not showing up on everyone's radar):

Hmm, I will probably pass this one. Too speculative for my taste. From the Amazon description: "With careful examination of Tolkien's existing biographies and the inadequacies of the explanations given and perpetuated from one biographer to the next, a persuasive picture is built up of what Tolkien may have been involved in over a period of decades. The writings themselves are amongst the most revealing proof of Tolkien's preoccupation with espionage and Intelligence and they are analysed closely and carefully"
