thanks for that -

- I hadn't seen it before. I'd like to see her book when it comes out. Yes, it isn't as impossible to see the papers as some would have us think - (usually those who haven't received permission).

AFAIK the family is happy to let bona fide scholars have access to the papers - Michael Drout springs to mind - and I know of another, a friend on facebook, who has also been working with the papers in connection with his thesis.

It is a pity that they used that 'quote' - as Darkstone pointed out some time ago, it's not Tolkien - it's actually from a poster for the Bakshi movie. I tried to say so on the newspaper page; but the paper insisted that I allow them to look at my profile and my friends list; so they will have to remain ignorant of the fact.

Smile

*almost forgot - Tolkien did have a beautiful calligraphic hand, but when he was dashing down notes, the results are often indecipherable - even by Christopher.
