EXHIBITION: Magical Books - From the Middle Ages to Middle-Earth

23rd May 2013 — 27th October 2013

http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/bodley/w ... ts/2013/may/magical-books

"The Bodleian's summer exhibition takes as its theme the work of some of the foremost modern exponents of children's fantasy literature, members of the group of writers informally known as the 'Oxford School': C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Susan Cooper, Alan Garner and Philip Pullman. From its unique holdings of these authors' papers, the Library will display a selection of Tolkien's original artwork for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings; C.S. Lewis’s 'Lefay notebook' and his map of Narnia, and manuscripts of novels and poems by Alan Garner, Philip Pullman and Susan Cooper. Also featured in the exhibition will be some of the books and manuscripts that contain the myths, legends, and magical practices on which these Oxford-educated authors freely drew for inspiration. This historic material is housed in the Bodleian where the Library scenes in the Harry Potter films were shot.

Opening times:
Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
Saturday 9am – 4.30pm
Sunday 11am – 5pm

There will also be a series of lunchtime lectures accompanying the exhibition."


It is on during Oxonmoot, I might suggest a trip, by Tolkien Society members, as part of the weekend.

We hope to be in Oxford in June, and go then; and if it's any good (as it should be), we can go again during Oxonmoot!
