That is interesting & certainly follows what you'd have guessed; namely that the person interviewed (audio & or visual) is certainly not the copyright holder. How on earth would any broadcaster be able to operate otherwise.

My point about the Tolkien Estate was really along these lines. They'd have had to acquire the copyright as I don't believe they would have originally owed the copyright to random interviews Tolkien had given 50+ years ago.

Why would the Tolkien Estate ever own any interview with Tolkien?

Postage from US to UK is pretty prohibitive; only reason I didn't bid. Ironic since it was signed in Oxford, but there you go.

I have a question: Why is your collection so damn fine?

Arbor, you say "or The Silmarillion"; is there a Silmarillion lithograph box set?

Ah, cheers for that info. Something to look out for in the future.

So are standard editions signed by everyone (which is what looks like is being signed in the photo) available anywhere? Or were you all just signing copies for each other?

Interesting offer all the same, Carl. You omitted Priscilla's name in that list, I assume deliberately; did she sign too?

So the book itself isn't signed? That's really quite unconventional. I can't say I'm particularly impressed, looking at these pictures. I mean, it's nice; but not for the price.
