Thanks for the reply. Do you know of a price guide for calendars? I also have some Vallejo and Frazetta calendars and I don't have a clue about pricing them or how to sell on ebay. I am willing to learn because I would like for someone who wants them to be able to purchase them. I am a novice at collectibles.

I recently bought a British Library publication "The British Book Trade: An Oral History"

http://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Book- ... tle_0/279-8882627-8322664

"The British book trade underwent radical change at the end of the twentieth century. The old family firms were being replaced by conglomerates and the ending of the Net Book Agreement gave shops new freedom to compete by cutting prices. "The British Book Trade: An Oral History" is more than a book about books - it describes the world in which books happened, and how that world has changed. This volume provides access to a culture often perceived as glamorous, incestuous and hard to enter, through the words of insiders across the board, from sales representatives and shop assistants, to secretaries, editors and executives. Their experiences range from the 1920s to the present day and include recollections of the British trade at home and overseas as far as Australia, South East Asia and India. The accounts are drawn from the Book Trade Lives collection of in-depth oral history interviews recorded by National Life Stories and accessible through the British Library Sound Archive. To anyone with an interest in the book trade or oral history, they have challenging, entertaining and illuminating things to say."

The book was largely funded by the Unwin Trust and one of the key individuals who pushed for the records to be made was Rayner Unwin.

So I thought, let's see Rayner's view on publishing. There is nothing in the book from Rayner, though part of an account from Rayner's wife is included on Tolkien.

Rayner stated that he did not need to contribute to this book because everything is in his book "George Allen & Unwin: A Remembrancer", which is a shame as it is so difficult to get hold of a copy of the book.

I'm sure our calendar expert member (Parmastahir) will be able to give you some advice, but he has already posted some information on his web site which you may find useful on rarity and value.

I also think eBay is probably your best bet to sell them.

I'd list them on eBay.

I have 9 Tolkien calendars from 1977 to 1980, desk and wall, that my husband held on to and I would like to sell them if they have any value. They are in mint condition in cardboard slips, unopened. Is there a market for them? Can anyone give me any advice? I'm afraid that if I die, my kids will toss them. Thanks.
