First Edition. August 6, 1961 London Observer newspaper. When the Lord of the Rings was first published in the mid 1950s, reviews were mixed, but mostly positive.

The Lord of the Rings became the best-selling fiction book in history (sales 150,000,000) and The Hobbit reached a tie for fourth with sales of 100,000,000. N... View more info

McCallum was a member of the Inklings and, while primarily known as an historian, his career was varied. Among other things he was Master of Pembroke College and editor of The Oxford Magazine.

It is about British attitudes about the Treaty of Versailles.Lond... View more info
