Thanks to Trotter for posting the link to my "What's my calendar worth?" page. I agree that eBay is probably the most ready market for them. As to what you can get for them, there's the rub. The 1977 - 80 Ballantine wall calendars are a bit common even with cardboard mailers (although it's better to have them than not) even if they're unopened . . . unless you have the rare 1979 Hobbit calendar. The desk calendars are a bit less common, especially if you have uncommon Methuen issue. If you have either of those, I'd sell them separately, describe them as the rarities they are, and set a specific minimum. (If you either one, let me know. We can discuss my perception of value.) If not, I think you'd get a better response (number of bids if not price) selling them as a lot. The common ones just don't sell individually and the cost of mailing them is often more than they're worth. I'd suggest watching a number of eBay auctions to get a feel for the market. It's easy to set up automated searches, watch them, and see the result of the auction when done. You'll have an idea of how best to list them (lot or individually) and what they could bring. Even then, one never knows about the eBay marketplace! It all depends upon who's and/or how many are interested. Any further questions, please post and I'll do my best to answer.

So, I recently acquired an American 1st, 1st of The Fellowship of the Ring. The book came with this publisher's compliments slip laid in the front.

Does anyone else have one of these slips or know anything about this?

Josh

And it goes without saying that I find none of these negative attitudes here on this site


Damn, I do my very hardest to display all kinds of negative attitudes and you didn't even notice!!!

I'll try a bit harder - How about : "The movies were indeed utterly awful and I look down at the kinds of people that like them and wonder what it would be like to be amongst the company of such asinine gutter-trash?" ?

The spine lettering did change from hand-lettered to typeset with the 6th impression (1954). The 'THE' of the jacket spine title also seems to have been strengthened at that time.
