Bodleian Library Publishing Spring 2018 cover.jpg
For anyone interested, the Bodleian Publishing catalogue for Spring 2018 is available to download in PDF format. It still has the old description of the Collector's edition in it, so I don't expect that is accurate, but there are lovely full page illustrations of Tolkien's artwork in it. Looks nice!

I am trying to get them to mail me a physical copy. If anyone happens upon a method to order one (or can pick one up for me when run across), could you let me know? Thanks!

MorganLogo_horizontal-white-356x32.png

The Morgan Library and Museum in New York City will be hosting the Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth exhibition from January to May 2019 after its initial run in the Bodleian Museum in the UK later this year.

The following important details have been confirmed so far:
* The exhibition will be slightly smaller - not all shown in the UK will make the trip to the USA for the exhibition
* The regular museum admission is required to see the exhibition (currently this is $20 per adult). The Bodleian exhibition is free admission
* The Bodleian exhibition catalog will be available to purchase at the Morgan exhibition, along with other Tolkien related books and merchandise

[UPDATE] The Morgan will not be showing items related to Tolkien's other writings, such as Roverandom, nor his academic work. Also, there are more family items in the Bodleian exhibition that won't be traveling to New York. They will be showing, however, the majority of items related to The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.​

More information to come as available.

Find the rebinding of The Book of Fairy Poetry interesting, as the binding on the book is quite nice in the first place.

My copy does not have a dust-jacket, which is shown on http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=11420, but I think it must be a very small number of surviving copies that do.

Interesting to see a rebound example, and this may be only one.
