Descrizione: np, Oxford, 1963. Condizione: 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. Codice articolo 2144

Descrizione: N.A., 1964. First Edition. 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.

Descrizione: London: George Allen and Unwin, 1954-55, 1954. Hardcover. Condizione: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Three volumes. Folding map in each volume. Return of the King is second state with sig. 4 and slipped type on p. 49 (this was formerly Hammond’s first state, but the bibliographer has revised his opinion). Original red cloth and printed dust jackets. Bookplate. Fine in very good fine dust jackets with slight wear, minor stains, tanning to the spines. An attractive set. FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST PRINTINGS. This is a very attractive set of the celebrated Lord of the Rings trilogy. The size of the edition was small: The Fellowship of the Ring (3000 copies), The Two Towers (3250 copies), and The Return of the King (7000 copies). Tolkien worked on this epic, not so much a trilogy as a long novel, from the publication of The Hobbit (1937) until the early 1950s. Beginning with the appearance of the second edition of 1966 and the nearly simultaneous appearance of the paperback edition in America, The Lord of the Rings became one of the best-selling works of fiction of the century. This is the “paradigmatic work of modern heroic fantasy. . . . Its success was not immediate, but its publication in paperback was an event sufficiently momentous to transform completely the market situation of heroic fantasy, and hence bring about a new era in its history. The Lord of the Rings made fantasy a significant publishing category and inspired a deluge of new works. The astonishing reception and influence of this work qualify it as one of the most remarkable literary phenomena of the 20th century” (Barron, ed., Fantasy Literature).

Descrizione: George Allen & Unwin, Ltd. 1954,1954,1955, London, 1954. Hardcover. Condizione: Near Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Near Fine. First Edition; First Printing. A most attractive set of Tolkien's three Landmark Books: (1) The Fellowship of the Ring, one of 2,500 first impression/first state copies bound by Jarrold and Sons, very Nearly Fine condition in alike dust-wrapper; (2) The Two Towers, 3,250 first impressions, faded top-stain, light foxing of page edges, in about Fine dust-wrapper; (3) The Return of the King, one of 7,000 first edition/first printings, Near Fine with light foxing to page edges in about Fine, second state dustjacket with reviewer comments to first two titles on back-flap, variant three with signature mark '4' present on page 49 and lines 'sagging' in the middle, originally designated as first state by Hammond/Anderson, later corrected by Wayne Hammond [The Tolkien Collector, Issue 11]. All volumes complete with folded maps of Middle Earth tipped in onto recto, back free endpaper with minor professional paper restoration. Dust-wrappers with original prices, free of prior owner inscriptions or markings. Rather scarce in this condition; Tolkien began The Lord of the Rings between 16 and 19 December 1937, three months after The Hobbit was published and George Allen & Unwin were encouraging Tolkien, against his inclination, to write a sequel. The rest is history. As C. S. Lewis commented (from the dust-jacket) : "If Ariosto rivalled it in invention (in fact he does not) he would still lack its heroic seriousness. No imaginary world has been projected which is at once so multifarious and so true to its own inner laws; none so seemingly objective, so disinfected from the taint of the author's merely individual psychology, no so relevant to the actual human situation yet so free from allegory. And what fine shading there is in the variations of style to meet the almost endless diversity of scenes and characters - comic, homely, epic, monstrous, or diabolic.". Codice articolo 12777

Descrizione: Ballentine Books, 1965. No Binding. Condizione: Fine. No Jacket. Barbara Remington (illustratore). 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.

Descrizione: London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1937, 1937. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine and covers blocked in dark blue, top edge green, map endpapers printed in black and red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine gently rolled, boards a little bowed, contents clean, a very good copy in bright cloth, in the price-clipped jacket, spine panel toned with shallow chips to ends, partly extending to rear panel with closed tear, tips chipped at front fold, illustrated panels well-preserved, still bright and presenting nicely. Colour frontispiece, 4 full-page plates from drawings by the author (3 in colour, one monochrome: "Mirkwood"), 8 full-page line drawings. First colour-illustrated edition, preceded only by the first printing, which was uncoloured. The four colour illustrations were commissioned for the first American edition, and "were in the American publisher's hands when Allen & Unwin decided to include them in the second impression. The original art was called back for reproduction in Britain, then returned across the Atlantic" (Hammond & Anderson, p. 15). The first edition was published on 21 September 1937 and sold out by 15 December. This second impression was hurried through the press and ready by 19 December. Of the 2,300 copies were printed, 423 copies in sheets were destroyed during the Blitz, when the binder's warehouse was bombed on 7 November 1940. On that same day the publishers also suffered substantial loss to their warehouse (over one million books), forcing the abandonment of the third impression, which was not published until 1943.

Descrizione: Headington, Oxford: 14 January 1956, 1956. One page, single sheet (171 x 132 mm), blind-stamped letterhead. Creased where folded for posting and additionally afterwards, the ink a little faded in the lower portion where the letter has come into contact with water; still good. Tolkien replies to a fan letter and an invitation to dine at the House of Commons: (" I am afraid I am not weary of praise, especially not of the rare kind, such as yours: expressions of delight. They are a comforting antidote to the pains of certain kinds of rather patronizing reviews or the sneers of those who dislike the 'noble' (especially in women) and retch at it, like Gollum at the scent of anything 'Elvish' ") Tolkien goes on to suggest meeting in London in the first week of February, and accepts the invitation to dine in the House of Commons. "I am rather a rustic, more of a hobbit than a man of Gondor, and I have never done that." He explains that his London visits are usually cut short by a rush for the train at Paddington. The recipient was Godfrey Nicholson (1901–1991), Conservative Member of Parliament for Farnham. He graduated from Christ Church, Oxford, in 1925, the year that Tolkien returned to Oxford as Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon, with a fellowship at Pembroke College. Two years after this letter, Nicholson was made a baronet and retired from politics in 1966. The occasion of the letter was the completion of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the last volume of which had been published in October 1955. As Tolkien's letter suggests, many reviewers were hostile, but the work sold extraordinarily well and found an army of delighted readers. Provenance: by descent. The letter remains unpublished.

Descrizione: George Allen and Unwin, London, 1937. Hardcover. First Edition; 2nd Impression. The book is bound in the publishers original green cloth covers with black titles and decoration. Presenting very well this is a nice clean copy with minimal signs of age or wear. A few light fox marks to the spine only else very good indeed. The corners to be strict have softened just a touch and the spine tips have a couple of very tiny bumps but I am being very picky. Internally the book is again superb, all original with no restoration. There are no inscriptions or names etc with no graffiti throughout. One very small original bookshop label to the ffep B H Blackwell of Oxford which is relevant to Tolkien. The book sits nice and square with some mild foxing to the first few leaves and occasionally through the book generally consistent with a book of this age. A little fox marking to out page block. Overall a real beauty. This the second printing is the first to have the additional colour frontis and plates by Tolkien himself. The first printing of The Hobbit was issued on 21st September 1937 with a print run of only 1500 copies. The book was an immediate success and sold out within months. This second impression was printed in December the same year in an edition of 2300 copies (423 of which were destroyed at the warehouse of the binder Key and Whiting in the bombing of London on November 7th 1940) and was the first printing to include the author’s four colour plates, initially commissioned for and later published in the American edition. [Hammond A3a. ] An absolute collectors gem and as rare as the First Printing. The book was'nt reprinted again until 1942. Codice articolo 120355

Of the five thousand copies of this edition, it is not known how many of each 'state' were printed or distributed, but in this cataloguer's substantial experience, those in the second state have far outnumbered the others. A nearly fine copy in a very good dust jacket with a tiny remnant of tape at the top of the spine and an old two inch tape mend on the back panel.

First editions, 3 volumes, 8vo., First editions, first impressions, the Return of the King in third state with the signature mark "4" and the sagging line of type on p. 49 (previously identified by Hammond as first state), all volumes complete with folded maps of Middle Earth and detailed one of Gandor/Rohan/Mordor tipped in at rear, the latter with ink and pencil marginalia (not affecting map) and tipped into volume II with Middle Earth rather than volume III, which has an additional map of Middle Earth therefore all maps present but in variant order from original, modern crimson morocco gilt, cockerel endpapers and all edges gilt, a fine set. At first, Tolkien intended The Lord of the Rings to be a children's tale in the style of The Hobbit, but it quickly grew darker and more serious in the writing. Though a direct sequel to The Hobbit, it addressed an older audience, drawing on the immense back-story of Beleriand that Tolkien had constructed in previous years, which eventually saw posthumous publication in The Silmarillion and other volumes. Tolkien's influence weighs heavily on the fantasy genre that grew following the success of The Lord of the Rings. Codice articolo 94216

Descrizione: George Allen & Unwin Ltd., 1967. Hardcover. Condizione: Near Fine. No Jacket. Pauline Baynes (illustratore). 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).
