Autographed, 2 page (front & back) hand written letter and envelope to Miss Turnbull, on his letterhead, with 76 Sandfield Road, Headington, Oxford address. May 19th, 1955 Dear Miss Turnbull, Your munificent and magnificent gift arrived safely on May 17th (I think). I am ashamed of not letting you know at once, but I have been vexed with 'administrations' during the last few days. Though sending off the last (marginal note) 'and at last' items for Vol III might have seemed a suitable occasion for the withdrawing of at least one cork, I have so far refrained: but when I drink I shall remember with (verso) a gratitude at least as warm and deep as Old Rory felt for his bottles of Old Winyards. I can only hope Vol. III will be up to it! Yours sincerely, J.R.R.

Beschreibung: np, Oxford, 1962. framed. Zustand: Very Good. First edition. SIGNED LETTER BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN REFERRING TO A POSSIBLE SEQUEL TO THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Written from Tolkien's Sandfield Road (Oxford) residence and addressed to Miss Miriam P. Hirsch of 677 West End Avenue, New York, NY, the letter, dated 16th April, 1962, reads in full: Dear Miss Hirsch, I am very sorry that my answer to your letter has been so long delayed. Thank you very much for writing to me. I am very pleased to hear that my works have given pleasure but I hope you will excuse me from writing more now. I am very busy and have little time to spare if I am ever to put ready for publication the sequel to The Lord of the Rings which I am being pressed to produce. Yours sincerely, [signed]J.R.R. Tolkien After the success of The Hobbit (1937), Tolkien's publishers (Allen and Unwin) requested he work on a sequel, which would, of course become the epic Lord of the Rings (1954-55). It was no wonder, then, that after the immense popularity of the Lord of the Rings Tolkien was implored to continue the saga of Middle Earth in the form of another sequel. In 1962, at the time of this letter, he was contemplating the direction of his new work and in this letter is most likely referring to what was to become known as "The New Shadow", a story, unfortunately, that would remain unfinished. Tolkien explained the fate of "The New Shadow" in a letter from 1964 to Colin Bailey: I did begin a story placed about 100 years after the Downfall [of Mordor], but it proved both sinister and depressing. Since we are dealing withMenit is inevitable that we should be concerned with the most regrettable feature of their nature: their quick satietywith good. So that the people of Gondor in times of peace, justice and prosperity, would become discontented and restless-while the dynasts descended from Aragorn would become just kings and governors-like Denethor or worse. I found that even so early there was an outcrop of revolutionary plots, about a centre of secret Satanistic religion; while Gondorian boys were playing at being Orcs and going round doing damage. I could have written a 'thriller' about the blog and its discovery and overthrow-but it would be just that. Not worth doing. (Carpenter, ed. Letters, 344). One page (8x10 inches). Headington, Oxford: April 16, 1962. Archivally matted and framed with a photo of Tolkien in the woods to an overall size of 13.75 x 21. Usual mailing folds, otherwise fine.

Beschreibung: George Allen & Unwin Ltd., 1967. Hardcover. Zustand: Near Fine. No Jacket. Pauline Baynes (illustrator). 1st Edition. London, England: George Allen & Unwin (1967). Smith of Wootton Major by J.R.R. Tolkien. First Edition. Small 8vo. Presentation Copy Inscribed to life-long friends - George and Moira Sayer. "George from J.R.R.T. With best wishes to you and Moira". Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Original pictorial boards, some rubbing to board edges. The inscription 6is on a piece of card laid-down to the front paste-down. The recipients are George and Moira Sayer, friends of both Tolkien and fellow Inkling C.S. Lewis; it was at their house in the Malverns that Tolkien recorded readings and songs from The Hobbit and the as yet unpublished The Lord of the Rings (it was the first time the author had used a tape recorder). Extracts from these recordings were commercially released in 1975. George Sydney Benedict Sayer was born on June 1, 1914 at Bradfield in Berkshire, England. He was educated at Trinity College, Glenalmond, in Perthshire, Scotland, and at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was tutored by C. S. Lewis. He joined the staff of Malvern College in 1945 after having been a Captain in the British Army Intelligence Corps on account of his fluent German. George was head of the English Department at Malvern College, Worcestershire, from 1949 until 1974, was a pupil, and later close personal friend, of C.S. Lewis during his undergraduate years. Sayer wrote the memoir and biography "Jack: C.S. Lewis and His Times". Lewis and Sayer became close friends to the extent that Lewis sought Sayer's advice when considering marrying Joy Gresham. On Lewis's death, Sayer was made a trustee of the Lewis estate. In August 1947 Sayer also befriended J.R.R. Tolkien, and would remain life-long friends afterwards. In addition to their involvement in the genesis of the "Lord of the Rings", the Sayers were close friends, and letters sent back and forth refer to Tolkien's delight in his visits to their home in Malvern. In August of 1952, having just finished the manuscript of "The Lord of the Rings", Tolkien took a vacation in Worcestershire, where he stayed with his friends George and Moira Sayer, an English Master at the local college. To entertain his guest one evening, Sayer pulled out an early portable tape recorder. Although the technology had been around for some time, it was only just becoming commercially available and Tolkien hadn't seen one before. Intrigued by how it worked, he joked that he "ought to cast out any devil that might be in it" by recording himself reading the Lord's Prayer in his beloved ancient Gothic language. The result delighted him, and he went on to read from his own work. The recordings were later issued on long-playing gramophone records. In the liner notes for J. R. R. Tolkien Reads and Sings his "The Hobbit" & "The Fellowship of the Ring", George Sayer wrote that Tolkien would relive the book as they walked and compared parts of the Malvern Hills to the White Mountains of Gondor. Sayer's first wife, Moira Casey died in 1977 following a long illness. In 1983 Sayer married Margaret Cronin. George passed away on October 20, 2005. Hammond A9. Inscribed by Author(s).

Beschreibung: Ballentine Books, 1971. Hardcover. Zustand: Good. No Jacket. Barbara Remington (illustrator). First Edition, 4th Impression. 1971 1st/4th UK edition filled with Pauline's wonderful illustrations. No jacket as issued, scuffing to edges, cover colors faded to pink. Minor damage to some pages, cigarette burns, please ask for more photos. Signed and rare for being personally inscribed by Professor Tolkien. This is a unique association copy signed to his nurse who was caring for him in his latter days before his death in 1973. Somehow appropriate that this book in particular was signed to his nurse. This short story professor Tolkien described as being "written with deep emotion, partly drawn from his own experience of bereavement of retirement and of advancing age". His first fan letter came from a young Terry Pratchett who grasped the depth of feeling in the book. He wrote to Tolkien- "an odd feeling of grief overcame me as I read it". Tolkien personally replied "You evidently feel about the story very much as I do myself. I can hardly say more". (Excerpt from Tolkien Maker of Middle-earth). The NHS nurse to who its inscribed would contribute to this copy her "depth of feeling" for her important charge by dropping her cigarette ash on the pages as she read it, obviously not appreciating the importance of a Tolkien signed book. This signed and inscribed copy is sad on many levels, making a truly one-of-a-kind addition to any Tolkien collection. Signed by Author(s). Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 01243

Beschreibung: Ballentine Books, 1965. No Binding. Zustand: Fine. No Jacket. Barbara Remington (illustrator). First Edition. Not since we supplied most of the important pieces to a Tolkien museum in Switzerland has such a key piece come on the market. The importance of this now iconic artwork to Tolkien’s huge popularity should not be underestimated. It was the cult status Tolkien first achieved in America on sale of millions of paperback and not in his own Britain,that would make him a household name. The Hobbit for example was not produced in the UK until 1961, 24 years after the first publication. Until 1966 his books only sold a few thousand copies a year, hardly a best seller. In fact the Tolkien society fan club first started in America, some five years before the UK version. Keep reading if you want to know more. We are pleased to offer for sale, perhaps the most important original Tolkien related art piece. It is truly deserving as a museum piece representing a key turning point in the history of Professor Tolkien popularity. While Tolkien’s own art was used in the Hobbits, none of his was used in the first lotR except the dust jackets. This is the original concept art submitted to Mrs Betty Ballantine for the 1965 Ballantine Books first paperbacks of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books in America. It was also used for the promotional posters and banners for what was to become very popular editions. It was produced by artist Barbara Remington as a concept proof before the final colour versions were produced. The medium is gouache on card, glued on illustration board with the original Ballantine stock sticker on the reverse, art piece 11 x 11 inches in size plus frame and matt width. It comes with a personal COA letter from Betty Ballantine. It also comes with two custom made frames, one for the art and one for the letter. Art frame has plexiglass panel on the reverse so you can see the Ballantine stock sticker. It also includes a poster- Come to Middle-earth which is the same artwork in colour as well as used on the cover of Fellowship of the Ring. This iconic illustration also has a slightly infamous reputation as Tolkien did not like it initially, but this does not alter its importance to Tolkien lore as we know it today. The History In 1965 Ace Paperbacks in America released unauthorised editions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the first time in paperback. This was due to a loophole in US copyright. The rush was then on for Houghton Mifflin, Tolkien’s US publisher in collaboration with Ballantine books to release authorised paperbacks of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. To close he copyright loophole, a new version of the LotR text was needed, in which Professor Tolkien set out to make changes in 1965. As was often the case, these revisions were quite delayed, forcing Ballantine Books to rush out a new edition of the Hobbit and using Barbara Remington artwork before she had actually read the books. Thus some of the strange figures in the artwork are not in the book. There was even a lion on the cover of the Hobbit PB until it was airbrushed out. During an interview with N Marion Hage and Andwerve, Barbarasaid- "I worked for Ballantine, and as a practice, always read the books before doing the artwork. I didn’t have this luxury with the Tolkien Books, something I wish I could have changed. Ballantine was in a hurry to get these books out right away. When they commissioned me to do the artwork, I didn’t have the chance to see either book, though I tried to get a copy through my friends. So I didn’t know what they were about. I tried finding people that had read them, but the books were not readily available in the states, and so I had sketchy information at best." (As noted above, Barbara did make sketches relative to the books, afterwards, but she couldn’t get the publishers to see the point, something which is very regretful). Professor Tolkien was not impressed with the new Hobbit book cover. In a letter to Rayner Unwin, 12 September 1965, Tolkien wrote: ‘I wrote expressing(with moderation) my dislike of the cover for.

A COLLECTION OF 40 SIGNED HOLOGRAPHIC LETTERS SPANNING THE YEARS 1964 THRU 1993; 14 from Edith Tolkien (wife of J.R.R.) dated 1964 thru 1971 and 26 from Priscilla (only daughter of J.R.R. & Edith) dated 1969 thru 1993; most in fine condition, many multi-page; all but two with original envelope when called for and all addressed to long time family friend Professor W. Meredith Thompson of Canada. Some details/highlights: Edith thanks Meredith for naming her the dedicatee of his book and receipt of same; mentions that her and J.R.R. give nicknames to those people they are fond of (indeed in all 14 letters from Edith, she refers to the recipient as "My Dear Merrie Tom"); notes that the pirated edition (Ace paperback publication) of THE LORD OF THE RINGS is causing her husband extra work and delaying work on his next book; the reasons leading up to leaving and selling their Oxford residence; J.R.R.'s fall down the stairs and complicated knee surgery and later thrombosis as well as other serious ailments; referring to various titles by J.R.R., Priscilla mentions and thanks the recipient for the good times spent by him with her parents; how neither of her parents are very practical people despite being so different from each other; the sudden death of her mother, Edith, and the causes and last days as well as who was able to see her and who was not and the funeral services in Bournemouth, but the actual burial in Oxford; how her father held up during these times; the return of her father to Merton College and how he was welcomed with lodging there; his much needed socialization in Oxford; his trip to London with her and brother John to receive the C.B.E.; thanks Meredith for the copy of THE LAST UNICORN but states "although perhaps rather obviously imitative of Tolkien in style, it (does) not contain the interest because (it's) a rather more crude fairy tale;" a trip to Edinburgh, one of her favorite cities, where her father received an honorary degree and held up well with banquets and festivities; how she was helped so much by his (Meredith Thompson) sympathy and kind words concerning her fathers passing; that her father was lonely without his wife but was bolstered by all those back at Oxford and happy to be in familiar surroundings; that just prior to his death he began hemorrhaging while spending time in Bournemouth due to an ulcer but had excellent medical care; how she and brother John were able to spend precious time with her father while still conscious but that brothers Michael & Christopher were alas unable to do so but were there for the funeral; that Christopher was named Literary Executor; that Michael had a near nervous breakdown perhaps precipitated by his fathers death; that brother John was coping well and a great comfort to her; that the younger members of the family were likewise supporting; she extends an invitation for Christmas this year (1973); that she encloses a photo (here present) of her father next to his favorite tree along with two of his grandchildren, among the last photos ever taken of him; that enclosed newspaper cuttings of her fathers death are his to keep (likewise here present): thanking the recipient for his hospitality when she went to see him; that her brother Christopher has to yield his teaching fellowship to begin work on the publication of THE SILMARILLION; the excitement of the on going preparation of the Tolkien biography by Humphrey Carpenter; the recently released Caedmon recordings of her father reading from both THE HOBBIT & LORD OF THE RINGS; cousins living in Canada; slowly going through her fathers papers to give to the Bodleian Library; the 50th anniversary celebration of THE HOBBIT and exhibition of manuscripts and drawings at the Bodleian Library along with window displays at new bookstores; etc. All in all, very chatty, informational and personal letters about the above as well as state of health, vacationing in different places, welfare of children and grandchildren, thank y.

Beschreibung: np, Oxford, 1963. Zustand: Fine. First edition. REMARKABLY REVEALING LETTERS BY TOLKIEN PROVIDING INSIGHT INTO HIS THOUGHTS AND MOTIVATIONS IN THE CREATION OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS. The first letter - a typed letter signed on Tolkien's Oxford stationery - is dated 16th December 1963 and is a response to a letter from Baronne Baeyens of Bonn, German. In this short letter, Tolkien expresses thanks for her letter, rejects allegorical interpretations of The Lord of the Rings, and admits feeling sympathy for Gollum. It reads in full: Dear Baronne Baeyens, Thank you very much for your letter of 28th September. I am sorry to have been so long in answering it, but I am very busy and not in good health. Your letter gave me great pleasure, and I was glad to hear that you enjoy my books. I was particularly pleased that you find allegorical interpretations of The Lord of the Rings unnecessary; it was simply meant to be a history as it appears. Please give my best wishes to your son, whose sympathy with Gollum agrees with my own. Yours sincerely, [signed]JRR Tolkien Something, however, struck Tolkien about Baeyens letter and upon reflection, it spurred him to write much more. In this long (four full sides), handwritten letter, Tolkien addresses some of the most critical topics associated with his writing. Over the course of the letter he: -insists that The Lord of the Rings is "in no way an 'allegory'", but "mythical-historical" based on "deeply rooted 'archetypal' motifs" -reveals his motivations for writing The Lord of the Rings ("I merely tried to write a story that would be 'exciting' and readable, and give me a scope for my personal pleasure in history, languages, and 'landscape'") -bemoans certain analyses of The Lord of the Rings that focus on symbolism ("they miss the point and destroy the object of their enquiry as surely as a vivisectionist destroys a cat or rabbit") -addresses religious "alignment" of The Lord of the Rings -notes that he plans to produce another book about the same world -explains the purpose and nature of the verses in The Lord of the Rings -admits finding "very moving. the place where Gollum [is] on the brink of repentance" -and in perhaps the most interesting section, in a detailed explanation of the origin of the character Stryder/Aragorn he provides wonderful insights into his method of creating characters. The letter reads in full: Dear Madame, I enclose a merely secretarial letter. I am obliged to leave a large part of the letters to a part-time secretary; but I always re-read them before sending any reply, and I felt that your most charming and interesting letter deserved a personal note, though it must be briefer than it should be. I much appreciate your perception that my story is in no way an 'allegory'-in any sense of that elusive and misunderstood word; but mythical-historical. It is-for those who like the story (many dislike it, and many think it silly and childish)-the taking up of several deeply-rooted 'archetypal' motifs, such as the broken sword, the hidden King, and so on, that gives the tale its moving quality, and the putting of them into an entirely new setting, carefully devised, that gives the sense of 'reality.' But that is, of course, for me, as much as for any reader or critic, an afterthought. I did not set out to do this. I merely tried to write a story that would be 'exciting' and readable, and give me a scope for my personal pleasure in history, languages, and 'landscape'-and trees. I feel that I was helped and 'protected' (if I may say so) by being unlearned except perhaps linguistically, and in having absorbed early, so that they had descended down into the fertile 'leafmould' of the mind beyond the reach of chemical analysis, myths and fairy-stories. I have never found books on myths and symbolisms attractive, even when I have occasionally been obliged to consider them professionally. For me they miss the point and destroy the object of their enquiry as surely as a vivisectionist destroys a cat or rabbit-whatever validity and. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 2144
