No it does not, that is why I posted this, I have sent a lot of emails to this address with no reply, as I mentioned I think this is a temporary problem that David will easily be able to resolve, but he needs to resolve this.

Please be aware that David seems to have stopped responding to emails, and until this is resolved I would be very careful in dealings with his web site www.tolkienbookshelf.com.

I am sure that this is a temporary problem, and will update as soon as I get any additional information.

This reminds me of "Tolkien's Gown and Other Stories of Famous Authors and Rare Books"

Rick Gekoski was asked very similar points when he sold Tolkien's gown.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tolkiens-Othe ... ous-Authors/dp/1845292391

It is an interesting book on book selling, and he was very much criticized on selling items like Tolkien's gown.

For esteemed Edinburgh University academic Angus McIntosh is rumoured to have played a vital part in kick-starting author JRR Tolkien’s creative process – by beating the author at tennis.

An injury laid the writer up, giving him time to dream up the fantasy yarn that has enchanted countless children.


Jo Blair, Senior Programmer at Picturehouse Cinemas, told the Evening News it is a literary fact that still surprises.

She said: “Not many people know that it was actually after hurting his ankle in a tennis match with Edinburgh University lecturer and academic Angus McIntosh that JRR Tolkien, confined to his room, started sketching out his ideas for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.”


I have never seen this mentioned before and the glaring howler is not a good start "started sketching out his ideas for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.".

Peter Jackson and his script team, may believe that Tolkien worked on both books at once, but he is probably the only one.

Any confirmation on this that anyone knows of, dates would be nice?

Well I believe he has been in contact with family members and has provenance for the items. Also know several auction houses have already shown interest ... anyways, just a little positive critique.


Who was he in contact with (which Family members?)
