In good condiotion - 1929

Linguaphone Coversational Course English Complete

The sixteen Records are in brown paper jackets on which advertisements for other Linguaphone courses are printed. The printings alternate black and red.

On the records we can read:
English Lesson 20 AT THE TOBACCONIST'S / Prof. J.R.R.Tolkien Prof.A. Lloyd James
English Lesson 30 WIRELESS / Prof. A.Lloyd James Prof. J.R.R.Tolkien

Tolkien received an invitation,which no doubts he gladly accepted, for he could use the money. He reads the introduction to lesson 20 "At the Tobacconist" and plays the shopowner in de following dialogue with Lloys James as the customer. In Lesson 30 "Wireless" Tolkien plays the part of the proud owner of a radio set who explains to a visitor (Lloyd James again) One can doubt if Tolkien's heart was really into this!
Still a very unique Tolkien collectable and very rare to find in this wonderfull state.


According to the British Library, the recording was made in July 1929; with the Reader’s Guide Scull and Hammond note:

The earliest recording of Tolkien’s voice, as far as is known to us, was made by June 1930 for the Linguaphone Conversational Course in English, issued by the Linguaphone Institute of London as a set of 78 rpm records. Tolkien read the introduction to, and played one of two roles in, Lesson 20, ‘At the Tobacconist’s’, and again was one of two readers for Lesson 30, ‘Wireless’.

Here is a rare and absolutely special plywood box covered with black imitation leather, it measures 27,5 x 27.5 x 6.8 cm and consists of sixteen 78 rpm LP's. The leather is in good condition for it time’s, has a few cracks.

Will be carefully packaged and shipped worldwide (insured).

    Il costo delle casse era sicuramente basso, ma la descrizione non era del tutto fedele: gli attacchi dei fili erano infatti molto rovinati.
    Le avrei comprate comunque, ma avrei voluto saperlo prima.

  • Im not sure I think its the fault of the carrier but the mesh front panels arrived in pieces. I think it should have been packaged separately.
