As you all noticed Tolkien Calendar 2011 will feature the art by Cor Blok (yes also use it in my avatar). Hope you all like it. In Tolkien illustration this probably about the complete other end compared to the works we have seen the last several years (Alan Lee, John Howe, Ted Nasmith,...) - still I hope Cor Blok's art can be appreciated by many. I would describe his art as wonderfully odd, but incredible fascinating.

At the moment I'm doing a lot of research on the art of Cor Blok and wanted to see if there are any members here that could help me out a little.

For example, who attended the SF convention in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in November 1994? Who bought the Cor Blok paintings that were on display there (n° 18, 19 and 20) or took pictures of them? The convention was called Hillcon V and Seal-Con... all info is welcome! In fact, all info on Cor Blok's paintings is more then welcome!

Does have anyone have more info on the exhibition (and selling) of Cor Blok's art on SF conventions in the 90's? It is quit important to find correct info about this to really understand how his paintings were put on the market and got dispersed. At the moment I'm especially trying to locate all current owners of his paintings.

I'm especially looking for info on the following paintings:
Isengard
Ephel Dúath
Sam attacks Shelob
The game of riddles
Weathertop
The Last Bridge
Minas Morgul

All help is very welcome!

I can offer only negative information, I'm afraid, i.e. that the Folio Society official bibliography (Folio 60, 2007, a lovely book in itself) gives no number of copies for the first printing. It does indicate that there were five printings through 2004, and that there was a stated limitation of 1,750 for some copies of the fourth printing (2003). The Folio Society tends not to indicate print numbers in its bibliographies, and I believe I'm correct (without unearthing my old correspondence files) that that they couldn't or wouldn't supply them for their Hobbit and Lord of the Rings when I was writing my Bibliography.

Further on the Festival in the Shire, 'Saranna' has posted a long report on the scholarly side of it here on the Lord of the Rings Fanatics Plaza (post of 12 September).

(Is there a vol. 2 too?)

Yes, there is, and apparently both it and vol. 1 (with JRRT) are available for purchase from the Moseley Society - or at least are still listed among their publications. Vol. 1 is priced at only £1.50, vol. 2 (with no name I recognize among the subjects) at £2.00 - plus postage, I'd imagine. See http://www.moseley-society.org.uk/publications.

(Is there a vol. 2 too?) There was a copy on eBay very recently (can't find it, must have gone) for Buy-It-Now (~)£12; better then $219!
