Topic Summary

Hi all, as some of you may be aware, the site here was hit with a take down notice from the Tolkien Estate Lawyers. I myself have been going through some of this over the last year but have continued to share here as this community I feel respects the nature of the content and it is for learning and a deeper understanding of Tolkien that has brought us all together. With that in mind I am altering how I share items, I will continue to do so but I will be a bit more careful about how. So from now on I will add updates in a folder named by the date I add them and list the titles that are included. That folder will remain active for 7 days and then the link will be removed. Of course you all can continue to request items from me as previously. So the first of these updates follows below. The folder will be available for 7 days. After 7 days the link will be removed and the titles will remain listed as reference. If a member replies to this post please remove the link so that I can maintain some degree of control over the links going forward.

Those of you who have access to my archive of course will receive these files as part of my updates there so you have no immediate need to download from the link here.

The Hobbit Sketchbook (Alan Lee) (scanned) (this was posted in the week but I am adding it to this update as it is so new)
AmonHen 283 (Tolkien Society Journal) (this was posted in the week but I am adding it to this update as it is so new)
Mallorn 60 Summer 2020 (Tolkien Society Journal) (this was posted in the week but I am adding it to this update as it is so new)
The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien (John Garth) (scanned)
Tolkien, Race, and Cultural History (Dimitra Fimi) (scanned)
Tolkien's Gedling - 1914 (Andrew Morton and John Hayes) (scanned)
A Question of Time (Verlyn Flieger) (this is an updated version of the previous update I did, I added poor photographs of missing pages, I have scanned those pages and added them to this book. It is now complete and while the pages are not professional imo, they are much more readable than my previous photographed additions)

Does anyone have, or knows where to find the magazine "Nigglings" ?

https://fanlore.org/wiki/Nigglings

It is not something I have seen anywhere over the years. Maybe one day the society will try to scan their volumes but otherwise I don't see it appearing to be honest. It was printed in such tiny numbers. I can ask one of the contributors though.

Thanks Phil, I tried to find something about them on the net, but there not many infos... so I got curious...

Phil, you are the best!

Always a pleasure John!

FYI for the group: I have today started scanning The Hobbit Sketchbook. I doubt I will get it done in one session as it is quite a tight bind and needs tinkering with for each page scan but I am least into it now.

Once I am through with this one I will scan Tolkien's Gedling by Andrew H. Morton and John Hayes and then Tolkien, Race and Cultural History by Dimitra Fimi, both of which have only been published in softcover/hardcover. Then hopefully I will get onto the new John Garth book The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien.

Does anybody have Home-3 Hardback? There is a colourful page of manuscriptю I need a best scan that you could provide.

Есть у кого-нибудь 3 том в твердом переплёте? Там цветная вклейка со страницей рукописи. Нужен качественный скан.

Hi John, by sheer coincidence it is the only volume of the 13 that is not boxed away in storage due to lack of space.

If it is not good enough quality let me know. I am hoping to get to the book scans later this week that some members here want so I could add it to the list to be scanned when I do that.

Очень нужен скан Beyond Bree October 1985.
Там есть статья "A Manuscript by J.R.R. Tolkien in the French edition of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil" by Taum Santoski.
Сборник этот мне попался, но А Эльберет Гильтониэль отличается от напечатанной версии и совпадает с записанной Толкином на аудио. https://tar-elentirmo.livejournal.com/407868.html
Очень хочется прочитать анализ этого манускрипта.
Спасибо!

Наконец-то подоспела замена Humphrey Carpenter'у:

Tolkien, by Raymond Edwards. London: Robert Hale, 2014

Скоро обновлю список.

Hi Philthehip, thanks as usual for the share!! You should share this with the Tolkien Society...

Do you mind to share with us, how do you came about the poem and maybe post some scans of Tolkien's Heimskringla copy?

Thanks again in any case!!

Hi Echthelion, always a pleasure. I sadly can't share the original manuscript as I was sworn to that before I was allowed to add it here as a message. I will not even place it in my own online archive for my members. But, be assured I have it and the source is one I trust in the matters of Tolkien.

I suspect we will see some discussion about the poem among Tolkien scholars in due course and I will in time create a digital version with notes to share here and on my archive. But for now I offer it as is.

I think it has been shared with the society already but I will extend the offer to Shaun Gunner.

Hi all, I don't know how many of you follow Tolkien blogs but a few days ago one blog posted part of a Skaldic poem from our professor which has not been seen previously. Well over at http://stratofanatic.blogspot.com/2020/04/a-skaldic-poem-by-tolkien-uncovered.html Dennis Wise shared the news about it. With no connection to him or Roberta Frank who wrote about the poem (I stress neither are connected to me and neither of them shared the poem with me) I happen to have the entire poem and post it here for this group. You are reading this before even the most well known Tolkien scholars. I thought that would be a treat for you all here as thanks for the community that shares and cares as it does.


The Derelicts.


Long-gazing they lingered
lonely beside the stony
beaches dark, where breakers
boomed resounding gloomy.
Pools lay gleaming palely
pricked by stars there flick’ring
in winds wanly bending
winter’s candles glinting.

Winter’s winds had hunted
waves as dark as ravens,
their shrouded ship laden,
lightless, sea-benighted.
Forth  now fared they mirthless
far from mortal laughter,
in caves coldly-builded
kindled fires that dwindled.

Songs by the fires they sang not:
silent lurked the island,
washed by shouting waters,
waves as dark as ravens.
The moon the clouds mantled;
Mist in starlight twisted;
in wind wanly bending
winters candles glinted.

Certainly, https://mega.nz/folder/p11UxQYB#K3Q2TxrAkW-lSI5Y6YoDxA it is the short poem and verse of The Complaint of Mim the Dwarf

Awesome, thanks a lot! I never meant though to sound like I didn't know what I was asking for: 'mysterious' referred to the style and provenance of this most curious piece, just that :)
Isn't it amazing - it's 2020, yet we're still coming across new and unexplored caves and tunnels of Tolkien's universe?

oops, haha I was rushing and assumed that all remnant of the upthread details had been deleted. My apologies.

Indeed, and we will still be seeing official releases adding oddments too. On that note, I will be buying the deluxe Sir Gawain but not upon release if it does somehow find release next week, I will have to shift it into a later date as we are currently 1.2 wages short during these virus times. It will include some previously unpublished elements which will finally deliver us a complete version of the 1953 W.P. Ker Memorial Lecture that Tolkien delivered on Sir Gawain. SO, if anybody here does get the book before me I would love some photographs of the lecture and any other 'new' text and I will happily reconstruct it to a complete digital edition. But again, I will get it at some point.
