Yes, that is surprising and very disappointing.
Wonder what led to that decision ?

More information here on the tolkien.co.uk web site

Looks like you can only buy it through the store on the tolkien.co.uk web site and is only available for delivery to the UK, which is a surprise.

You should be able to pick them up on eBay if you are not in any hurry. I picked up first printings (retail, not BCA) of both of those books in NF condition a year or so back for $15-$20 each (can't remember exactly). Despite what a lot of booksellers might have you believe, there were a LOT of copies of these printed (I think the first US print of BOLT1 was 25,000 copies), so they are actually remarkably common.

Cheers
Stu

I am looking to by the first two History of Middle-earth books (Lost Tales 1 & 2) published by Houghton Mifflin. I am looking for First Printings. What I have been able to find online are either Book Club Copies or outrageously priced. Anyone know where I might find a set (Near Fine or better), or have a suggestion of where to look? Thanks.

Hi Anthony -

I had this dream that after collecting so many calendars, I would like to create one. With Ted and Jef providing illustrations (some previously unpublished!) and my daughter doing the publishing (all of those tuition bills are now paying off!), I am not really doing much other than facilitating communications (OK, and getting the Shire Reckoning and important dates correct). I can not wait 'til I have one of them in my hands. This is really exciting for me!

Have the 2008 Colin Williams calendars coming. Assuming that the 08 HI calendar is a success and we do an '09, he said that he would love to be included.

Also have a previously undiscovered variant of the 74 A&U calendar published in New Zealand heading my way, too.

And I just received a mint (unopened mailer) copy of the 74 Ballantine calendar.

All in all, a pretty good time to be a calendar collector!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm
