Oronzo Cilli, Tolkien the Esperantist (5/8)

Before the arrival of Bilbo Baggins

Barletta, 2017. 1st edition. Paperback.

The book contains studies by Arden R. Smith, Patrick H. Wynne and Oronzo Cilli which examine the connection which existed between J.R.R. Tolkien, and the planned language Esperanto, created by L.L. Zamenhof.

Smith and Wynne’s essay, published originally in Seven (2000), presents Tolkien’s first experiments with inventing languages and analyses in depth his initial encounter with Esperanto, as mentioned in a notebook of his from 1909 which he called the Book of the Foxrook.

Cilli’s essay covers the period of Tolkien’s life when he first encountered Esperanto in his youth, via the Officers’ Training Corps and Baden-Powells’ Scout movement and the celebration of the World Congress of Esperanto (1930), which was attended by R.B. McCallum, and the British Congress of Esperanto (1933), for which Tolkien was named a patron. Thanks to Cilli’s research, a document previously unknown in Tolkien studies, The Educational Value of Esperanto, signed by Tolkien alongside other eminent British academics of the time, is included.

A contribution from Tim Owen of the Esperanto Association of Britain enriches the book. The Foreword is entrusted to John Garth, author of the books Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth (HarperCollins, 2003) and Tolkien at Exeter College (Exeter College, 2014).*

The Black Serpent Adventure Pack

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

The Black Serpent is the fourth Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game. Its sixty cards (which include a new hero and three copies of each new player card) lead several of Middle-earth's greatest heroes along a detour from their homeward path. Even in the arid wastes of Harad's deserts, even after traveling for league upon grueling league, and even after just barely surviving their encounters with Orcs, Wargs, and giant spiders—the heroes remain true to themselves and committed to their fight against the Dark Lord.

In addition to its scenario, The Black Serpent introduces a new Spirit hero with the Rohan trait, as well as a handful of other Rohan-themed cards, cards that increase the utility of your Song and Pipe attachments, attachments that grant your characters additional Traits, and a new side quest that enhances your heroes' ability to quest successfully.

This is not a standalone product. Requires a copy of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Core Set and The Sands of Harad deluxe expansion to play.*

The Grey Havens Nightmare Deck

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

Beren and Luthien Large Print Edition (2/8)

HarperCollins, 2017. 1st edition. Paperback. Illustrated in b&w by Alan Lee.*

The tale of Beren and Lúthien was, or became, an essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, the myths and legends of the First Age of the World conceived by J.R.R. Tolkien. Returning from France and the battle of the Somme at the end of 1916, he wrote the tale in the following year.

Essential to the story, and never changed, is the fate that shadowed the love of Beren and Lúthien: for Beren was a mortal man, but Lúthien was an immortal Elf. Her father, a great Elvish lord, in deep opposition to Beren, imposed on him an impossible task that he must perform before he might wed Lúthien. This is the kernel of the legend; and it leads to the supremely heroic attempt of Beren and Lúthien together to rob the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, called Morgoth, the Black Enemy, of a Silmaril.

In this book Christopher Tolkien has attempted to extract the story of Beren and Lúthien from the comprehensive work in which it was embedded; but that story was itself changing as it developed new associations within the larger history. To show something of the process whereby this legend of Middle-earth evolved over the years, he has told the story in his father's own words by giving, first, its original form, and then passages in prose and verse from later texts that illustrate the narrative as it changed. Presented together for the first time, they reveal aspects of the story, both in event and in narrative immediacy, that were afterwards lost.

Gundabad Orc Helm. Weta

 

Commanded by his master to assemble his armies and march upon Erebor, Azog the White Orc called forth his legions. Cracks in the earth opened, iron gates ground upon rusted hinges, and the darkness regurgitated its children, evil things bred in secret, far from the light. Their ranks swelled by Trolls, Ogres, Wargs, and other foul creatures, the main body of Azog?s force was composed of tall, broad-shouldered Orcs of his own heritage.

In the dungeons of Dol Guldur and Gundabad they mustered, forging cruel weapons and armour, cunningly devised, though crudely crafted. Many and varied were their helms, sporting bladed cheekguards and jutting crests as jagged and dangerous as the swords they gripped.

Each 1:4 scale Helm is made from polystone and comes in an edition of just 750.*
