Thanks for sharing the link! I had never heard about that publication before.

And don't worry about your level of English - I'm not a native speaker either, and Khamul only teases me a little!

Doworst in "Monash Review"

Hello everybody,

I am a Tolkien collector from Spain and I've read this forum for many years. Is the first time that I write in this forum. Sorry if my level of English is not very good...
I have discovered something really interesting in Internet. It is a scanning of an Australian magazine dated in 1975 ("Monash Review"). Three years before the publication of the humorous poem "Doworst" in the Australian fanzine 'A Elbereth Gilthoniel' (according to "Reader's Guide", Scull and Hammond, page 214) the manuscript of the poem and Tolkien's letter to Chambers appears reprodced in this magazine. The link is:

http://www.adm.monash.edu.au/records- ... monash-review/1975-3.pdf.

Maybe it's a new article to add to Tolkien publications...

No, I confess I didn't; even after reading it twice! Time to go to the optician, I think ...

I know, bold doesn't show up in quote boxes that well. I did notice --just teasing; although, I don't think Wellinghall spotted it!

I basically agree with you laurel, but if your house burnt down, what evidence are you likely to have for 99% of your contents? None, as any evidence probably went up with the rest of your life! I just don't think you wouldn't get a payout in this situation.

But getting back to books, I've often wondered if you could get your "collection" itself insured. I wonder what these specialist book insurers actually do. You know, I have that flyer somewhere --I'll look it out & find out who they are etc.
