Descrizione: Betty Ballantine, 1965. No Binding. Condizione: Fine. No Jacket. Barbara Remington (illustratore). First Edition. Betty Ballentine and now Barbara Remington have passed away making this a true historic piece. It was the cult status Tolkien first achieved in America on sale of millions of paperback and not in his Britain, that would make him a household name by the late 60's. 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: Headington, Oxford, England, 1955. No binding. Condizione: Fine. Autograph Letter Signed, to Naomi Mitchison. Headington, Oxford, England, December 8, 1955. 4 pp on 2 leaves of wove paper with Pirie's/ Crown Bond watermark. 5 5/16 x 7 1/8 in. (13 1/2 x 18 cm). The first page is embossed "76 Sandfield Road/ Headington/ Oxford." With original autograph addressed envelope. In a letter peppered with references to Middle Earth and its inhabitants, an exhausted Tolkien takes his first lengthy holiday in four years-in Italy. He returns and writes to Naomi Mitchison, a fellow novelist and his proofreader, for failing to provide feedback for her novel, To the Chapel Perilous. Tolkien discusses the demands on his time, ranging from his teaching load, thesis advising, and publishing, to reading critical reviews. Tolkien's dissatisfaction with radio adaptations of Lord of the Rings occupies a prominent place: I think poorly of the broadcast adaptations. Except for a few details I think they are not well done. I thought that the dwarf (Gloin not Gimli, but I suppose Gimli will talk like his father.) was not too bad if a bit exaggerated. I do think of the "Dwarves" like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the language of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue. The balance of the letter discusses literary critics, reviews of Mitchison's book, and anachronisms in her latest offering as contrasted to Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. TranscriptYou really are most kind and generous. Thank you so much for your last letter. I feel that I should have written long ago, especially since I failed to make any kind of return in the matter of "To the Chapel Perilous." But perhaps you will understand I felt exhausted, since in addition to the "Lord of the Rings" I had only just concluded a two-year term of administrative office in college on top of professing, and the advance copy came just as I was about to go off for the first holiday since 1951 of more than two or three days. Reading it - I went to Italy - was easy * and delightful; but I seemed too dried up to say anything. And when I came back the shadow of one of those things one idiotically lets oneself in for when they are distant fell on me. [Written at bottom and continuing up left margin]: *I mean for the will; my mind found it difficult. You move in the complicated world with an ease that helps me to understand why people find my much simpler and more simple-minded world bewildering. I cling to Lienaro whom I liked and found intelligible. I had to deliver the opening lecture of the newly-founded O'Donnell Lectures in Celtic Studies-already overdue: and I composed it with 'all the woe in the world,', as the Gawain-poet says of the wretched fox with the hounds on his tail. All the more woe, since I am the merest amateur in such matters, and Celtic scholars are critical and litigious; and more so since I was smitten with laryngitis. I think poorly of the broadcast [radio] adaptations. Except for a few details I think they are not well done, even granted the script and the legitimacy of the enterprise (which I do not grant). But they took some trouble with the names. I thought that the dwarf (Gloin not Gimli, but I suppose Gimli will talk like his father - apparently someone's idea of a German) was not too bad if a bit exaggerated. I do think of the "Dwarves" like Jews: at once native and alien in their habitations, speaking the language of the country, but with an accent due to their own private tongue. I have, of course, a good many letters: most of them intelligent and critical, and largely inspired by annoyance with the critics. Edwin Muir produced quite a batch, from people who seemed to think I should be upset at his tone. But I got as much good from him, I suppose, as was possible - unless he was prepared to read the book with attention. He showed by his remarks on Lórien that had not. But I do not feel disposed to blame him, as I. (See website for full description). Autograph Letter Signed. Codice articolo 23221

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1955) The Lord of the Rings , UK first edition set (3/2/2), published by George Allen & Unwin. Beautifully rebound in full red morocco (leather) incorporating Tolkien s own design on the spine, and housed in a custom made slipcase. In addition, an original typed and signed letter by JRR Tolkien discussing the publication s delay of The Silmarillion ; together with two more letters cementing its provenance. The books: The Fellowship of the Ring , UK first edition, third printing, published in 1955; The Two Towers , UK first edition, second printing, published in 1955; The Fellowship of the Ring , UK first edition, second printing, published in 1955; All three volumes have been beautifully rebound in full red leather in honour of the original first edition red cloth bindings. Put together, the spines show the Gates of Moria as designed by Tolkien himself on page 319 of The Fellowship of the Ring. The page block edges have been gilded. The volumes are housed in a custom made slipcase with dividers for each individual book. The bottom of the slipcase is lined with soft felt so that the slipcase can slide in and out the shelf without causing noise and without damage to the slipcase. An intelligent and beautiful craftsmanship by the bindery to the highest, luxurious standard. Condition of the books: the books present in fine condition. All maps are present at the back in all three volumes. Internally, without any previous owner s inscriptions, no bookplates, no stamps. There may be an occasional ageing spot on a couple of pages, but overall this is a very clean, well preserved set. The letters: 1) Tolkien s letter to Martin Hooton, one page, 7 x 9 inch, personal letterhead, dated June 16, 1967, signed by hand. In full: Nobody regrets the delay in issuing The Silmarillion and other related works more than I do. I have, however, had an overwhelming number of obstacles to cope with, the chief of which has been the trouble arising in early 1965 in U.S.A. There, owing to a peculiarity of their copyright law, my works were being published without any reference to myself at all. I have already considered the idea that you mention of publishing some (of the) [inserted by Tolkien by hand] work in parts and getting out something before the whole is put in order. I will do my best. Please give my best wishes to Elizabeth Goudge and thank her for her kind words. In near fine condition, with a diagonal crease to the lower blank area. Two central folds to fit an envelope. Ink of the signature unfaded, clear and unblemished. 2) Accompanied by a cc of the original letter from Hooton to Tolkien in which Hooton enquires about the progress on the Silmarillion , expresses his admiration, and mentions how Hooton introduced Tolkien s work to Elizabeth Goudge, a children books writer herself who won the Carnegie Medal for The Little White Horse in 1946. 3) A referenced response letter to Hooton from the George Allen & Unwin publishing company, typed and signed by Rayner Unwin, Tolkien s publisher, and son of the publication house founder Sir Stanley Unwin. JRR Tolkien died at the age of 81 on September 2, 1973, some four years before The Silmarillion would eventually be published. Due to its unfinished nature, the complex work was edited and published posthumously by his son, Christopher Tolkien, with the assistance of Canadian fantasy writer Guy Gavriel Kay. The Silmarillion is comprised of five parts and describes the universe of Eä, the homeworld of Valinor, Beleriand, Númenor, and Middle-earth, within which The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings take place. In short, a gorgeous set of books accompanied with an interesting letter written and signed by Tolkien with excellent provenance. First and Fine. Signed by Author(s).

Descrizione: London George Allen and Unwin -55, 1954. First editions, 3 volumes, 8vo, 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 2 with Middle Earth rather than volume 3, 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., 1954-1955, London, 1954. [First Editions]. The epic fantasy trilogy which set the mark by all others that were to follow. First editions all of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS, and THE RETURN OF THE KING. This is a lovely set, rebound not only in red leather, but each volume encased within a leather-tooled-spined, traycase. A fine example of the bookbinders art. This had been once a paperbound proof set as throughout the volumes primarily the first volume are pencilled notes and calculations checking and verifying mileages, times travelled, etc., that Tolkien had texed. I have no knowledge of who wrote these pencilled notes, this set was originally auctioned in its soiled wrappers which were discarded when the volumes were rebound. That is the extent of my information. The leather is in beautiful condition, there is some slight rubbing to the traycases. The book papers themselves as I stated was a working set and there is some wrinkling to early pages in volume one. The pages are lightly soiled at page edges. A very good set in fine leather. The value of LOTR has increased exponentially since the movies smashing successes, and now to obtain an original clothed set in this condition would cost you many tens of thousands. The leather bindings alone would be priced ion the many thousands, these days. Codice articolo 645

Descrizione: George Allen and Unwin, London, 1957. Hardcover. Condizione: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. First Edition. Allen and Unwin. 1956, 57, 57 impressions 5,5,3. A lovely first edition set, above average condition jackets and books for the age. These early impressions are increasingly hard to find without much more wear and tear, especially to the dust jackets. This set is in exceptional condition compare with how they are usually found. You can tell the books and jackets have been kept together by the uniform wearing and aging patterns. Now an extremely rare set, especially with the first ever slipcase! This set has had no restoration and alterations as is happening more and more. We feel these early editions are more authentic as-is, with warts and all. None of the usual tattering to jacket spine ends and corners, though darkening to the spines, with lighter color spots (see photos). This darkening is from exposure of light and damp to the spines as the covers are protected when on a shelf. FotR is 1956 5th impression has a 7th impression dust jacket. (It was normal practice for the publisher to spare dust jackets, earlier and later). There is no serious flaws to any of the books. However, what makes this set so special is the slipcase. Autumn of 1957 was the first time you could buy all three titles together, with the first ever produced slipcase. This is the true first edition set as you could never buy the first three printings of each book together, (1,1,1) as they were printed until 1956. A true first edition set with the qualifier of "the first time all three books were sold together as a "set"! The construction and features of the case is interesting, read below, you can tell its the first slipcase as far as it's printed on the label: "63s net the set of all three volumes" and it was cheaply made compared with later slipcases. As far as we know this label was not used on the 2nd or later State slipcase, though possible. The "first state", first version, slipcase is a collectors item itself with only 500 originally made with very few surviving because of poor construction i.e. no staples, no flaps. Keep in mind the slipcases were only for marketing purposes. In 20 years of dealing, this is the first first slipcase we have seen. Importantly though, with the books it is a true "first edition set". The later cases without price allowed them to be used on later sets with mixture of printings and years on the books, as well as mixing dust jacket impressions and book impressions. By mid- 60's the books were very popular, sold and packaged as same year sets with more durable slipcase. There were different printers and two printings a year in some cases so dust jackets Please ask for more photos. We have a number of early first edition sets listed. See my guide to collecting first editions. Codice articolo 002083
