For anyone interested: I have put the Linguaphone set on eBay, starting at €75 (which I think is a, relatively spoken, low price).

Last week, I bought a later but scarcer Linguaphone set (different booklets and lay-outs). I now have two (complete) sets and am putting one up for sale. I thought I'd ask you if anyone is interested in the set. If not, I'll place the set on eBay. If you are interested, feel free to make me an offer.
The set is complete: it has all three booklets and all records. The records are in very good-perfect condition, the booklets have suffered some minor wear, but are in really good condition considering their rather poor-quality and their age.
This is a very fine set and I don't think there are many out there that are still in such good condition.

I have sent an e-mail to Merlin Unwin Books regarding the book and asked if they could perhaps consider to re-publish the book for the greater public (perhaps as a print-on-demand?) because there seems to be quite a lot of interest in it, especially from Tolkien 'fans' because of the two chapters on the relationship between Rayner and the professor, but that a copy of the book is hard to come by and often (extremely) expensive when one finds a copy.
I received this answer:

Dear Mr Denys,
Very many thanks for your email and your interest in George Allen & Unwin: A Remembrancer. Whilst there are currently no plans to reissue the book at present, I will bring the matter to the attention of my colleagues and hopefully we can reconsider the matter.
Best regards Jo For Merlin Unwin Books


Let's hope for the best!

Arda Reconstructed Paperback

According to Amazon a paperback edition of this book will be published on July 16th, with a friendlier price tag.

I guess HarperCollins will make another POD of this book, as they did with Christopher's The Saga of King Heidrek the Wise. No idea when, though...

I'm glad they didn't forget his most famous work 'Dynasty Of Man'! A must-read!

If you open the pdf in "full window", you can save them on your computer (and print them out, for personal use only of course, just like I'm going to do). Don't really like reading long texts on a screen...

What a magnificent piece of art!:

http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/Sauron-art-print-lord-the-rings-jrr-tolkien-5x7-/180613151948?pt=Art_Prints&hash=item2a0d61fccc#ht_500wt_1156

The abstract rendering of Sauron and the highly detailed Frodo(?)-figure: surely this must be the work of a master! The symbolism and emotions just drop off the painting. And then I haven't talked about the colours yet!
Too bad it's just a print...

What about John Francis Tolkien? I see the J, the F and the T so I guess this is quite a possible solution?
