- Recollections of J.R.R. Tolkien.
- Abstract: Reminiscences of walking with Tolkien around Malvern and
of visits to his house in Sandford Road. What he said and what our
mutual friend, C.S. Lewis, said about him.
- Publishing Tolkien.
- During the last thirty years of the Professor's life, but especially
towards the end, Rayner Unwin met, talked with, and worked for, J.R.R.
Tolkien. It was a business relationship between author and publisher,
but increasingly it became a trusting friendship as well. In an ideal
world authors and publishers should always act in partnership. This
certainly happened between Professor Tolkien and George Allen &
Unwin, but in some respects, the speaker explains, the collaboration
had very unusual features.
