TCG Letter #877

Christopher Tolkien
Francisco Perrúa
31 January 1978
Typed Letter Signed
Christopher Tolkien replies to Perrúa who had written to tell him that he had handed over the work of Las Dos Toores to Senora Matilde Horne. Christopher expresses his hope that the Appendices will be included in the third volume. He finishes saying that "I have not seen it and do not intend to, but I have seen a book with pictures taken from the film. I will not deafen you with vociferous condemnation and say no more than that I regard it with abhorrence, as a wholly unbelievable travesty of my father's work and a denial of the entire imaginative and aesthetic outlook."
I was able to summarise this letter with the help of the auction house who kindly provided more details of the two letters sold.
