Thanks Phil, for your unceasing effort, you're amazing.

I can't see A Question of Time in this folder. Has it been removed? May I have a direct link?
Also, it seems the catalogue of Mallorn from vol.1 to vol.59 has already expired. Wouldn't it be possible to access it again?

Always a pleasure. Oddly, I had added A Question of Time in the other day as I had missed it originally and it was gone again.

Mallorn 1-60 plus partial list of contents and index upto and including issue 24 https://mega.nz/folder/xlsFRQSL#7equVi4mNvFVSB-P4ogVBw

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.

https://mega.nz/folder/Fksh1Yab#ZxKavFjtlpNaKVnOMKWv-w (20-06-2020 update):

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)

Thank you very much for your work, but, please, remove one of pages 11 (they are right one after another one in a row) in pdf of The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien (John Garth). It does not allow to use double page view correctly and I would be very thankful for sharing original scans of book (unedited), because I'd like it to edit in my own way to use while reading. It would be really cool to have.

Thanks for the correction Marinier (UPDATED). I am about to leave the house so I will upload the page scans and send the link when I am home. It is just over 3GB.

I have also scanned the 2 manuscript pages and editor's note from the new Sir Gawain Deluxe. They are the only 'new' pieces in it so no reason to scan the entire thing. https://mega.nz/folder/9xEmQQIA#4XwLbWli5kmU2lOxYLpmgg

The link unfortunately to these pages is no longer available. Any chance for a new upload?

I'm thinking about setting up a private sub-forum for file sharing with invite-based access.

I would certainly welcome this. I suspect that it will become essential in the coming years to hide our activity. I am probably already running a gauntlet with the Tolkien Society journals as they are trying to combat any sharing so it would definitely help us all. And it would potentially enable me to share much more, I keep my archive fairly private but if I could post links in a secure environment then I could include my bi-weekly updates here too and include the group more in my activities sharing the contents of it here.

On a side note, the next book I will scan is the facsimile Hobbit, that one proved impossible to scan because of the spine so I dried my tears and did what had to be done to get a proper scan of it into my archive and here. I have 2 more copies so I am not too brokenhearted though. Pic attached.

  :o :o :o
Wow Phil! You are so devoted to the cause! Thank you so much fo all your shares!

Always a pleasure. I will scan the facsimile Hobbit tomorrow. I decided against scanning the Tolkien's Lost Chaucer. It is available in ebook form so when I am feeling a bit more flush I will purchase that one from Amazon.

I am about to sort my bookcases so maybe there are some other bits too that may be of interest.

Phil, thank you so much for the scans :)
Especially for Fimi - the retail price is just ludicrous.

There a lot of changings, even in title, in the new Garth`s book. There are 2 editions, in fact.
Also, when work on translation, Constantin and Sergey found a lot of mistakes and sent it to Garth, he accept it and incorporate into the 2nd edition.

So, I advise you to await couple months and buy a book, or download pdf nearly October-November.

John, I am only 50 pages short of completing a scan of the book, will finish it tomorrow and will sort the pages through the week. Could you possibly send me those errors and I will ad it as a page at the end of the PDF.
