Paul Berg sent me this note to share with the community and ask for help. It appears that he is in Australia from his email address but I haven't confirmed that yet. I am helping him get pictures uploaded here as well.

Hi There “Tolkien” Friends.
In about 1976 I purchased my “Tolkien” Chess set, in an Art Gallery. The Chess Set was inspired by Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. It was Designed and Executed between January 1974 and February 1975 by Andrew Thomson.

The Pieces are:
Aragorn - White King
Eowyn - White Queen
Gandalf - White Bishop
Treebeard - White Rook
Frodo - White Pawn
Sauron - Black King
Shelob - Black Queen
Ringwraith - Black Bishop
Nazgul’s Steed - Black Knight
Orc - Black Pawn

As I am about to sell my home and need to move into smaller quarters, I am considering selling this set. The pieces and the handcrafted leather board are in a great condition and shows very little use. The board is set in a solid Blackwood table and is 73cmx114cm and 37 cm high. I would appreciate any feedback you may be able to offer.

Regards. Paul berg

The CD version of this is on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tolkien-Audio ... TF8&qid=1306903311&sr=8-1 and the cheapest price is less than £9($15), so for the cassettes you are probably looking at about £2-3($5) if you sell though eBay.

They are the same, the only obvious difference is that the introduction is different in both books, but after that they look identical to me.

I bought a lovely little piece of ephemera today, A Tolkien Book of Days (HarperCollins 1996).

I would be glad for any help on the following questions:

1) Are the contents of this diary exactly reproduced from The Tolkien Diary (Grafton 1992)?

2) Is there any "unique" Tolkien material (or, material that can only be found in very expensive, out-of-print publications) in A Tolkien Book of Days? I'm specifically thinking of the illustrations (since the quotations all seem to come from widely available sources)? I cannot, for example, find the flower reproduced over 13-15 November in my copy of J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator (Hammond and Scull).

3) Across the book are sprinkled some very small illustrations and I wonder if all of these were made by Tolkien (and originally reproduced in Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien, which I sadly don't own yet) - for example the tiny spider and cobweb appearing below 15 March?

4) Anyone happens to know who wrote the short introduction and the "factual" texts appearing on several dates? The only people mentioned in the book are Frank Richard Williamson and Christopher Tolkien, but I suspect neither of these took part in writing these texts (?).
