I had thought that the tea towels were from around 1977. The two that I know of turned up in the same batch of goodies as a Silmarillion t-shirt and some promo leaflets that also date from 1977.

I remember hearing that a small number (3?) of the posters were signed - for Tolkien's grandchildren maybe? It is a very vague memory - I can't remember where from.

Sadly the A&U archive only runs until 1968, when they abandoned central filing - later records were disposed of when Unwin Hyman was formed, and/or when HarperCollins took over.

There was a Het Spectrum promo version of the Bilbo's Last Song poster - translated into Dutch.
