Weta 3275. Handbeschilderd beeldje van polystone. Het huisje van een visser, met drogende netten, palingen en een omgekeerde bootje. Afmetingen: 12 x 6,5 x 5,5 cm
Scattered among the grassy hills of Hobbiton like a purse full of lost coins, the bright round doors of many dozen Hobbit-holes shine in bright, summery hues, each home to a Hobbit or family of the little people.As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as Hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.The hobbits calling Number 31 Lakeside home are lulled to sleep each night by the gentle lapping of the water just a few feet from their burgundy door. Being so close to the water's edge makes for convenient fishing. Nets are spread for mending on the grass and freshly snared eels hang outside. Hot pitch bubbles in a pot, ready to be smeared on the upturned hull of the fisherman's round coracle. Each an individual dwelling, the Hobbit holes lend themselves splendidly to creative placement in your cabinet. With a flat back and shallow depth of only 55mm, they can be placed on mantles, cornices, shelves and in windows.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s linguistic invention was a fundamental part of his artistic output, to the extent that later on in life he attributed the existence of his mythology to the desire to give his languages a home and peoples to speak them. As Tolkien puts it in ‘A Secret Vice’, ‘the making of language and mythology are related functions’’.
In the 1930s, Tolkien composed and delivered two lectures, in which he explored these two key elements of his sub-creative methodology. The second of these, the seminal Andrew Lang Lecture for 1938–9, ‘On Fairy-Stories’, which he delivered at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, is well known. But many years before, in 1931, Tolkien gave a talk to a literary society entitled ‘A Hobby for the Home’, where he unveiled for the first time to a listening public the art that he had both himself encountered and been involved with since his earliest childhood: ‘the construction of imaginary languages in full or outline for amusement’.
This talk would be edited by Christopher Tolkien for inclusion as ‘A Secret Vice’ in The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays and serves as the principal exposition of Tolkien’s art of inventing languages. This new critical edition, which includes previously unpublished notes and drafts by Tolkien connected with the essay, including his ‘Essay on Phonetic Symbolism’, goes some way towards re-opening the debate on the importance of linguistic invention in Tolkien’s mythology and the role of imaginary languages in fantasy literature.*
Beverwijk, 2020. 1e druk. Paperback.
For almost four decades, Renée Vink, co-founder of the Dutch Tolkien Society Unquendor and translator of several of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works, has been studying the Legendarium of Arda and writing about it. Among her output are numerous contributions to the Society’s magazine, an increasing list of scholarly essays, and the monograph Wagner and Tolkien: Mythmakers. In addition, she has edited several issues of Lembas Extra, Unquendor’s biennial magazine.
This volume contains thirteen of her articles, focusing on various subjects from translation, Elvish affairs, books by female authors with links to Tolkien’s works, Jewish aspects of his dwarves, fan-fiction, and last but not least, another Wagnerian parallel. Nine of these, the oldest dating from the early 1990s, were published previously in various journals or conference proceedings. The remaining four are new.
Unquendor chairman since 2013, Jan van Breda, has provided an introduction to the volume:
“The members of Unquendor have come to know Renée as aninsightful writer, a sharp thinker, and (if needs be)a fierce debater on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.”*
