As well as containing a host of photographs and other mementos, this biographical account of Tolkien’s life includes:

Page 22 - A 'coded' letter created by Tolkien for Father Francis Morgan accompanied by a limerick.

Page 32 - Cover of the Exeter College Smoker.

Page 33 - Namárië in tengwar script, reprinted from The Road Goes Ever On.

Page 35 - A postcard from Tolkien to Edith Bratt, dated 2 February 1913.

Pages 40-1 - A trench map annotated by Tolkien, along with a note on military signal paper.

Pages 59-60 - An envelope and letter from Father Christmas.

Note: The title to the photograph at the top of page 15 incorrectly states that Arthur Tolkien is seated on the left. Arthur is in fact seated in the middle. This can be confirmed by comparison with the photograph on page 16.
