Looking for a 1973 TT (7th imp.) with the purple cover i.e. the first impression(s) to have this new cover, back in the 70's (--after the grey jackets, that were intoduced with the 2nd edition.)

TolkienBooks

Doesn't have to be F or anything; just to complete an o/w VG/VG set. Anyone have one knocking around?

Hello to all -

Well summer is over and I'm back in a calendar mood as the 2012 calendars are coming out. So I updated the Calendar of the Month feature at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

This month's featured calendar is one of a set of rare ones (not many created and extraordinarily hard to find.) Hope everyone's fall is going well!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Nice detective work, indeed. I don't look in for two days and this thread has exploded into life. Having nothing to add, and only having EP's The Silmarillion (why would I buy anything else! ) --all I will say is: their Silmarillion appears to have all the textual errors from the first impression present; presumably because they used this text (photographically) for their edition. Think they might want to update that too...

Now that I actually read the description (of the auction I flagged), it makes even less sense!

It's claiming it's the "inbetween edition" (presumably referring to the use of the Howe jackets, by HC, on old GA&U stock) --but talks about a full line number being present! GA&U didn't use line numbers, so if one is present, it clearly ain't a GA&U book. And, the jackets went on the old 2nd impressions left over, not (to my knowledge) any first impressions. So, in conclusion, a total muddle of an auction!

I am putting up for Bid a 1979 Tolkien Enterprise Chess Set - Lord of the Rings.
•Great condition.
•Made in 1979.
•Authorized by Tolkien Enterprises.
•Handmade of crushed stone and resin.
•Pieces range in height from 4.5" to 6".
•Diameter of Chess Set Board is HUGE: 23 3/4 inches squared.
•Some pieces are missing horns (see picture).
•I bought this when stationed in West Germany in 1980 and have kept it in storage ever since.
•This set is older and more unique than most of the other sets offered for sale. I have seen a few chess sets but without the board and not the 1979 version. Very unique for the right collector.
