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.

Good stuff...

I'm not suggesting the review copy I have is any different from any other Billing copies of The Silmarillion; it is identical as far as I can see. But it is a Billing copy, and I was just curious (if it were possible to determine) how pre-publication it was. Likewise if dates could be put on the Clowes dummy copies it could help build a clearer picture of printing priority between different printers i.e. the old Clowes were in production first as they had to be shipped abroad chestnut.

Rowns, a US HoME copy of Lays just went on eBay for about £30; it was some sort of uncorrected proof copy (as you mention)...

Remy, can I get that 1998 Silmarillion 'Review' copy of you have?

My wife's grandmother was a book reviewer. We have her review copies of LotR. As far as I can tell, these are identical to the normal first edition / first impression (although I have never done a detailed, point-by-point comparison).
