Hi,

Does anyone have scans of the 'contents sheets' that were included in the shrinkwrap of some of the copies of Vol 1 and (I believe) all of the copies of Vol 2 of the Deluxe Editions of the History of Middle-Earth? I have the original sheet with my vol 3, but was curious as to what 'blurb' was included with the first two volumes...

Thanks if anyone can help!
Stu

Hi Jeremy -

Well, I had not realized that I was caught up in a "perfect storm" (between the calendar collectors and the fanzine fanatics). I should have when you wrote of your interest in the fanzine. it certainly generated more interest and a higher price than (by a factor of at least 11x compared to the average for) the many other fanzines that Farley has parted with.

I will make whatever information from the fanzine that you wish available to you (and any others that ask). I am merely a caretaker of Bernie Zuber's legacy. While I outbid others (perhaps selfishly because I fear - with great reason, I think - that I will not see this calendar ever again), I am not going to lock it away never to be seen or appreciated again.

Away from The Green Hill Country (with credits to Hildifons and Bernie),

The website has had some hiccups with new user registrations recently. I thought I had everything fixed up right, and in fact when I create new user accounts it appears to work well, but others are still occasionally having troubles. If you try to register here and anything goes wrong, please drop me a note via email ( webmaster AT tolkienguide DOT com) and I will continue to debug.

Thanks! Sorry for the troubles...

I must say I was rooting for you Parmastahir on that eBay auction. The combination of a calendar you hadn't seen before with a fanzine that had primary CJRT material (a letter/article written by Christopher that was published here for the first time) brought a couple of different groups of collectors together into a bit of a perfect storm.

I will be adding that issue of Angerthas to the Guide, I may ask you some questions about it once you have it in hand.

Was crazy enough to outbid a rather large (for an eBay auction of a Tolkien calendar) number of other bidders for a 1984 calendar from Norge Tolkienforening. It was an insert into their November 1983 fanzine Angerthas. It actually comes from the hoard of the late Bernie Zuber (from whom my closing is ultimately attributable by way of Hildifons Took himself). So I'm pleased in many more ways than one to have acquired it. Was also able to pick up the 2007 Australian calendar that Dior notified me of. (THANKS AGAIN for the tip!) Also have two from small French society coming my way. Will add these to the website once they get here.

Trust everyone's summer is going well!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir
