However: the printers have promised that my new edition of Rayner Unwin's "the making of the Lord of the Rings" will be delivered this week. All 12 specials, numbered I to XII have been sold already. I add the front cover, the Hobbits in Broad street poster issued in 1992

Berelach, when you get the records, are there any copyright statements on them, i.e. you have the records, but is it listed who owns the copyright on the recording.

In this case, I would be surprised if was The Tolkien Estate.

I never asked the Temple Bindery (Ian Barnes) to bind 25 copies of the Silmarillion. Only 25 copies of Roverandom when the bookshop was still in Broad street. Tolkien of course used to visit the bookshop and I remember him when I worked for Parker's bookshop, also in he Broad in the mid 1960s. I wonder who owns such a Silmarillion edition. The bindery told me today that they only bound up 3 or 4 copies for various customers. Wim Meeuws, Thornton's Bookshop/Faringdon

If you are thinking of attending this event and have the Tolkien:Maker of Middle-earth Bodleian book, then have a look at page 410, as it states which items will be on display in New York, sadly not all the items that are on display in Oxford.

I don't think the Lord of the Rings set is much better, they are probably both owned by the same seller, when they don't sell, I would get both rebound.


This shows what I know, The Hobbit sold for £11,875 and The Lord of the Rings for £6,895, the Deluxe Hobbit sold for £238.

I have to express staggerment at the first two prices.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth

The exhibition dates are January 25 through May 12, 2019.

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” With these words the Oxford professor J.R.R. Tolkien ignited a fervid spark in generations of readers. From the children’s classic The Hobbit to the epic The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien’s adventurous tales of hobbits and elves, dwarves and wizards have introduced millions to the rich history of Middle-earth. Going beyond literature, Tolkien’s Middle-earth is a world complete with its own languages and histories. Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth celebrates the man and his creation. The exhibition will be the most extensive public display of original Tolkien material for several generations. Drawn from the collections of the Tolkien Archive at the Bodleian Library (Oxford), Marquette University Libraries (Milwaukee), the Morgan, and private lenders, the exhibition will include family photographs and memorabilia, Tolkien’s original illustrations, maps, draft manuscripts, and designs related to The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.

Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth is organized by the Morgan Library & Museum in collaboration with the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford University and with the support of The Tolkien Estate, The Tolkien Trust and members of the Tolkien family.

The Morgan exhibition is made possible through the generosity of Fay and Geoffrey Elliott.

Oh gee! That rules me out. :(

I’m still waiting for my copies of Maker of Middle-earth (hardback) and Treasures from Amazon AU. There seems to be a long delay for some reason. I had preordered and it still hasn’t shipped.

Here's where one of the trade hardcover copies that I and my fellow contributors signed has landed: a prize drawing with Waterstones.

(I've emailed them about the several errors in item 5 of the "Terms and Conditions")
