While browsing on internet, I found a cover (which I've never seen before) of a book apparently entitled Introduction to [The?] Elder Edda: A Selection translated from the Icelandic by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited[?] by Peter H. Salus and Paul B. Taylor.

The book doesn't turn up on Amazon - anyone knows anything about this book? Is it a "real" cover or just a fan creation?

The cover looks a bit typographically similar to that of this book:

"The Elder Edda: A Selection translated by Paul B. Taylor and W.H. Auden" at Amazon.co.uk

As far as I know, there were eight posters in this series, not dated but first published possibly in 1974. They have been variously noted as published by Camden Graphics, Poster Shops, and Posters by Post. Besides the five you have, there were also posters of Tolkien's Death of Smaug and the two Tolkien maps by Pauline Baynes.

Can somebody please help me out ? I have 5 posters purchased in 1975 and can find limited information about them. They are; The hill-hobbiton-across-the-water, Bilbo awoke with the early sun in his eyes, Bilbo comes to the huts of the raft elves, Conversation with smaug and The forest of the lothlorian in spring. They are from Camden graphics and in excellent condition many thanks in advance
I can email pics if required but struggle to upload them to forums via my phone

Oh, it's this rum cove again -

"The work is not supplied with certificate of authenticity and guarantee (as has never been subject to assessment, evaluation expertise) and then, having regard to the recognition and similarity to the stykle of the author, is proposed as a copy of copyright, falsecopyright, in the manner of the author, under Article 8 of the Law of 20 November 1971, n.1062 (Official Gazette No. 318 on December 17)"

bloody hell...
