Indeed, quiet everywhere. I have not bought much in the last month either. Seems to be a lack of rare/scarce/quality/interesting editions coming to market at the moment. Most of my purchases have just been New Books (mostly criticism). Though there are a few interesting new releases (and some more to come in the following months).

I suppose with the increase in the number of Tolkien Collectors over th e past number of years, it is inevitable that the scarcer editions will just become even more scarce as time goes on (and the books get placed permanently in collections).

Maybe if the Hobbit Movies become certain, it may encourage more books back onto the market.

In the current economic climate also, I suppose not too many seller's want to sell quality books into a poor market.

No idea what I am talking about really. Just speculating out of boredom.......

I'm sure Parmastahir, who regularly updates this forum on his Tolkien calendar collecting (over in the 'Calendar' part of the forum), would be more than happy to advise you on where to sell (and who to perhaps).

Either that or eBay. Since I don't seriously collect calendars I'll leave value & collectability to those who know more...

I'm new to your forum, so be kind. I've got a calendar I'd like to sell as I'm moving abroad and although it's beautiful I don't have room for it. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I could market this?
Thanks
Irene

The Unfinished Tales is best regarded as volume 0 of The History of Middle-earth (or volume 13, depending on your point of view). The Children of Húrin is actually the expansion of one chapter from The Silmarillion, most of its material having already appeared in Unfinished Tales or History 10&11. So they're both closely related.

Perilous Realm is not closely related. It contains 'fairy stories' not set in M-e. But they're still related to Tolkien's philosophic concept of mythology and fairy stories that is also behind M-e.
