'Tolkien at his relaxed and ingenious best' The Times

Synopsis

This revised edition of Tolkien's famous illustrated letters from 'Father Christmas' includes extracts and pictures not included in the original publication 25 years ago. Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R.Tolkien's children. Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining-room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house! Sometimes the Polar Bear would scrawl a note, and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script, adding yet more life and humour to the stories. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness and 'authenticity' of Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas.To complement the timeless charm of the letters and their accompanying pictures, this new hardback edition features a delightfully "classic" dust-jacket, with the inclusion of every one of the delightful letters and pictures that Tolkien sent to his children.

Von Ein Kunde am 4. November 1997
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
J.R.R. Tolkien wrote his children a beautifully illustrated letter from Father Christmas each year. They are wonderful and witty adventures, with the holiday ever-threatened by the antics and errors of the bumbling North Polar Bear. Somehow F.C. and the elves always managed to stay up all night and make enough toys to save the day. The original edition of these letters, "The Father Christmas Letters," has been hard to find for some years. This newer edition was promising- each letter was enclosed in an envelope (much like the "Griffin and Sabine" books)- a nice touch, and expensive for the publisher to produce. Unfortunately, they did not go to the additional expense of actually including the full letters if they were longer than one page, as many are. Each year gets a single page, regardless of the actual length of the original letter. So many of the stories and adventures are cut off with no resolution. This edition is poorly slapped-together and unworthy of the artistry of the originals. Whomever is responsible should be ashamed.

The beloved J. R. R. Tolkien, author of "Lord of the Rings", wrote and illustrated them a variety of letters to friends and relatives in honor of Christmas season which is now Christmas past. His ornate and fanciful handwritings are works of art in themselves and add to the whimsy of his handcrafted tales and fables. At this point there are four or five editions of the Father Christmas letters in print. From the miniature which weighs three ounces to this one which is a full by nine inches by twelve inches. This Houghton Mifflin revised 1999 edition is a tall book filled with full-page glossy reproductions with previously unpublished material. One young woman who was about to have her first child last year asked me about J.R.R. Tolkien's relationship with his family, in a way this is one the best ways to find out as you see the love and care that he put in to the production of these items, which he wrote only to amuse his family and not for publication. Humphery Carpenter in his 1977 authorized biography of J, R.R. In a way Tolkien's early work sort makes me think of Beatrix Potter though it looks nothing like her work, but then again they were both world builders of sorts Tolkien includes a wonder description of Tolkien not having enough money to take his children on a train ride instead taking the down to the train station to wistfully watch the trains come and go. Though I am not the worlds greatest collector I have to say it is wonderful feeling to have all of the editions to sort of play with. Lucky 157 Pages, Color Drawings

Entertaining letters written by Tolkien for his children. Out of these type of activities grew his masterpiece - THE LORD OF THE RINGS. He wrote these stories for his children, whilst involved with the more serious work of his mythology. But the culmination of his children's fiction - THE HOBBIT, was so successful that it was published and Unwin wanted a sequel.
That said, these letters are good, and on the same quality as ROVERANDOM and FARMER GILES. Both of those are abundant in word play. These are fascinating, and good holiday stories. The chief complaint I have with these are they were not all published. As I understand it, some of the letters that are published are lacking the entire letter. However, the selection of 1925 to 1939, although for some reason it seems I read it continued on to 1945. That might be in error. The letter in 1920, only a note, is included in facsimile, but for some reason the letters of 1921 to 1924 are missing. A severe misfortune. However, if you are looking for light holiday fare (all of his children's fiction is light fare, with the possible exception of THE HOBBIT), this is the place for it. Afterward, read ROVERANDOM and FARMER GILES OF HAM. Narnia is better than both, of course.

New editions of J.R.R. Tolkien classics return these fine presentations to new generations of readers. Tolkien's Letters From Father Christmas arrived too late for holiday recommendation but this deserves a place on bookshelves as a fine set of letters from 'Father Christmas' telling of life at the North Pole. This revised edition provides new material, including letters and pictures not seen in previous editions. Beautifully done.

Please note that this is the regular-sized edition; a previous reviewer thought that the hardback was 3" by 3", when, in fact, this volume is app. 1" by 12" by 9". Those who enjoyed the 1995 edition in the letter format will also appreciate this new edition.

Tolkien hat mich nicht nur bei den anderen Büchern fasziniert. Auch die Weihnachtsbriefe sind eine schöne Vervollständigung meiner Tolkiensammlung. Kann ich als Weihnachtslektüre nur empfehlen.
