    I think i can to offer one more correction – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Thorburn
    You wrote “Alexander Thorburn” in A&I and Pictures of Hobbit.

    Many thanks for your great works. They are awesome.

    Re The Lord of the Rings: A Reader’s Companion
    p.33 the hobbit name Boffin (also Mr Bliss)

    Thanks to a post by Stephanie Jenkins on the History of Oxford group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/425240434576048/) I’ve found out that in the 1920s there was a bakers near Carfax (on the St Aldates corner) that went by the name Boffin. There’s a Frith postcard showing the area and the photograph which apparently can be dated precisely to 1922 by its number, 71997 (see http://www.oldpicturepostcard.co.uk/dating-frith-postcards.htm).
