Don't know why, but I read the first post that I made in this thread. It was 4 June 2006 and these boards had just been restarted by Jeremy (our great gratitude to you!) At that time, I had catalogued 190 calendars. Three and a half years later, the 2010 issues have brought that total to 320. Thanks to everyone who humors my obsession and has helped me find (and collect most of) them.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Sorry for the double post - if it were me, I'd take the book along to Sotheby's for evaluation.

Regarding the postcard from behind the fireplace - it wasn't from Tolkien; it was apparently addressed to his wife, (though whether even that is true seemed far from clear, as far as I can recall.)

I hadn't heard that it had actually sold. I wonder how much it went for?

Hello Stephen
Andrews advise is good as there are many very experienced Tolkien collectors who view this site and will give their free expert opinion. In terms of selling there is of course ebay with a world wide audience and private auction houses. Both will take a commision (ebay 10% , auction houses usually 10-20%).

I am sure others will add their thoughts but i personally would auction via ebay with plenty of photos or simply set the figure you are happy with and make item a fixed price if not offay with auction system.

Look forward to viewing pictures
