A descriptive and illustrated guide to collecting Tolkien and Tolkien related books - One Library to rule them all
This is the fifth news letter send by the Tolkien Library. It summarizes the events of what has happened on the site since July and brings the latest news. These letters will be sent once in a while and will feature all changes and updates to the site.
The Lord of the Rings, celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first publication
Exactly 50 years ago, "the Return of the King" was put in the stores and J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy "The Lord of the Rings" was completed. Since it was first published in 1954, "The Lord of the Rings" has been a book many people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike. One hundred and fifty million copies of its many editions have been sold around the world, and occasional collectors' editions become prized and valuable items of publishing.
The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion
One of the publications we all have been waiting for finally is here: "The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion". The perfect Christmass gift you can imagine is this book, within the 50th anniversary book set by Harper Collins, together with The Lord of the Rings. Luckely you can also buy it separetly (as hardback and paperback), since it will become a book which will be read a lot and be unmissable once you have it!
www.tolkienlibrary.com has seen many updates since July. The biggest change was of course the complete makeover of the site and the creation of the Tolkien Library logo. Many corrections were made to the Dutch Tolkien bibliography. More articles of this size and importance are coming and will be published soon. We have contact with Spain, Germany, Italy and Greece to create a similar bibliography in the future.
