I would think this is a mistake on price (£55 new for the 1998 sealed box set) but it is a buy it now at £12. Good Luck if you don't have this set

I think that this is the full text of an interview that Tolkien gave to Philip Norman for The Sunday Times on the 9th August 1966 (page 672 of the Chronology by Wayne & Christina).

It was reprinted in the New York Times in January 1967.

An interesting episode of the Biblio File podcast (http://nigelbeale.libsyn.com/) which deals with a large range of topics, author, book seller, bibliographers, etc. interviews.

This one is with Professor Iain Stevenson on the history of 20th Century British Publishing Houses and has some interesting comments on George Allen, G&AU and Sir Stanley Unwin.

Iain Stevenson has worked with Longman, Macmillan, Pinter, Leicester University Press, Wiley, and The Stationery Office. In 1986 he founded the environmental publisher Belhaven Press. He created the award winning MA in Publishing Studies at City University London and was a Professor in the Department of Journalism and Publishing there between 1999 and 2006. He is active on the governing and advisory board of the Publishers Association. Current research is centred upon the history of British publishing and the applications of new technology in publishing, especially e-books and alternatives to the printed monograph in academic and scholarly communication. We met recently to talk about his excellent new book, Book Makers: British Publishing in the Twentieth Century, published by British Library.
