Descrizione: Betty Ballantine, 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: Allen & Unwin, London, 1954. Original Cloth. Condizione: Very Good Plus. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good Plus. J.R.R. Tolkien (illustratore). 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by George Allen & Unwin, in 1954, 1954, and 1955, the 1st UK Edition, 1st impressions. The Fellowship of the Ring is a 1st impression published July 29th, 1954. One of 1500 printed for the UK. The Two Towers is a 1st impression published November 11th, 1954. One of 2250 printed for the UK. The Return of the King is a 1st impression published October 20th, 1955. This copy is the 1st State, as per Hammond & Anderson, with the signature mark '4' and having the slipped type on page 49. Correspondence with Wayne Hammond has indicated he has revised his original definition of the 1st state, from what was described in the Tolkien Bibliography, making this the later state. All original maps are present and in Near Fine condition, no tears or extra folds. All three books are in their original dustjackets showing a light bit of fading to the red lettering on the Fellowship and the Return, which also have the same previous owners name, while the Two Towers has no name in it, and no fading. No other markings or writing in any of the books. The front endpapers show a moderate amount of offsetting on the books. No foxing noted in any of the books, with a few scattered spots to the outside edges of the textblock, none to the interior of any of the books. The dustjackets are not price clipped, and they have only the most minor of rubbing and splits or loss to a few area's, mostly around the folds, and ends of the spine on The Two Towers. The previous owner had reinforced the edges of the dustjackets with archival tape, and a couple of other minor closed tears as well. The tape was removed by a professional dustjacket restorer on the Fellowship at the time he removed the spotting on the front panel of the dustjacket, and strengthened the folds, which were starting to split. There was no other restoration work performed on the other books. Photo's are available of the before and after on the Fellowship dustjacket for comparison if desired. The text blocks are all clean, bright and tight, without any internal foxing or markings. Red topstain is still bright and clean on all three books, not faded as often found. A beautiful, collectable set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature. The Fellowship of the Ring is a 1st UK Edition, 1st impression with the book in Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition. Previous owner's name and address (same in 1st & 3rd books) to the front free endpaper. The gilt is bright and untarnished on the spine. The boards are very clean and bright, with a couple of minor liquid spots to the boards, virtually no shelf wear on the bottom edge. The dustjacket is unclipped and shows beautifully. Very light tanning and only light soiling, however it does have the minor restoration removing an area of spots to the bottom of the front panel. A beautiful, correct 1st impression dustjacket. The original map is present, without any tears or extra folds, has the 1st state point with the red dot off the coast of Umbar. A lovely copy, in its correct and original 1st impression dustjacket. The Two Tower's - 1st UK Edition, 1st impression, has the date (1954) on the title page, and no other printings listed, which would indicate a true 1st imp. Book is in Very Good Plus/Near Fine condition. No previous owner's name nor any other writing. The boards are very clean and bright, without any bumps to the corners, very little shelf wear on the bottom edges, and no noticeable wear to the spine tips. Gilt is a bit tarnished and slightly dulled. The dustjacket is not clipped, and has almost no tanning on the spine, again is only lightly soiled. Some minor rubbing to the edges, and a few small chips and loss to the fold area's and spine tips. The original map is present, without any tears or extra folds, also has the 1st state point with the red dot off coast of Umbar. A lovely copy, in its correct and original 1st impression dustjacket.

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

Housed in a matching leather entry slipcase. A fine set. Each volume has a map illustrated by the Author. First editions, first impressions. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the most influential literary works of the century. Its first reception was mixed: favourable and perceptive reviews from C. S. Lewis and from W. H. Auden, who had attended Tolkien's Oxford lectures, were countered by others who were hostile, sometimes bitterly so. But the trilogy went on to astonishing sales and forged a major change in public literary taste. "Heroic fantasy" has since become one of the most commercially successful literary genres, having a transforming impact upon the entertainment industry, from electronic games to movies.

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
