Tolkien's Library

My proposal consists in a presentation of my latest contribution to Tolkien Studies, the monography "Tolkien's Library - An Annotated Checklist", including a Foreword by Tom Shippey. My work is going to be published in summer 2019 by Luna Press Publishers, and it is a unique reconstruction of J.R.R. Tolkien's private library, based almost exclusively on facts rather than suppositions. In his Foreword, Tom Shippey wrote: "Such study will throw up many new insights into Tolkien's thoughts, his life-experience, and the way that experience expressed itself in his fiction. The best guide to an author's mind is through his books, and in the work of Cilli we have now the best and most valuable guide to Tolkien's books. It is a devoted and enduring work of scholarship".
