Also, the WorldCAT entry for the map seems to think it was published in [1966?]. Probably not a bad estimate based on the lack of a zipcode and the periods in the state.

From the Beyond Bree "List of Tolkienalia" (1992), page 22:

"MIDDLE EARTH": top, "BEING A MAP PURPORTING TO TRACE THE DIVERS ROUTES TAKEN BY THE COMPANIONS OF/ THE RING DURING THEIR HEROIC AND HISTORICAL JOURNEYS THROUGH MIDDLE EARTH -". Center - map. Bottom, "MIDDLE EARTH"; left corner, "Based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS/ BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN' AUTHORISED by -/ The American Publisher Houghton Miflin [sic] Co."; right corner, "Bruin Inc, Publisher/ 342 Madison Ave, N.Y., N.Y."; 3-color, no date, 30x40".

The footnote says that there is a photocopy of one in the Hunnewell collection. I can inquire if he remembers anything else about it, if you like.

Ah, 11 June 1933 entry of the Chronology is where it is called out. Missed it before!

And it was an Honorary membership.

I am seeing in multiple references (online, and in print dating back to the 60s) that Tolkien was a(n honorary) member of the Icelandic Literary Society, Hid Íslenska Bokmennta-Felag. I don't see any mention of this in the Reader's Guide or Chronology, Carpenter's Biography, or a few other sources I checked. Anyone have additional information?

Does anyone happen to know anything about this poster? I can find examples of a couple coloured copies (here and here) but even for that version I can't find any concrete information.
