Remy - Thanks for the info.

I have another question I would appreciate some assistance with:

Sometime in 1973-74 Allen & Unwin started to laminate the dustwrappers on the 3 volume hardback LotR to produce a harder wearing gloss finish.

FR - TT - RK

I am trying to find out when the lamination was introduced, so would appreciate hearing if anybody has some copies dating from 73-74. The lamination is easily spotted on the flaps of the jacket - sometimes it covers half of the flaps, sometimes just a few mm. It may have been introduced a little later for the Fellowship than for the other two volumes.

Posted the Calendar of the Month for September this morning. It is a German language variant of a particular favorite of mine. Thus, it is somewhat uncommon.

Also added a German language Shire Reckoning calendar to the catalog. It is available in .pdf format from the creator's website.

Hope you enjoy them!

Discovered (and collected) a previously undiscovered Tolkien calendar. It is a variant of the 1977 calendar published in New Zealand. Check it out at:

As it winds down, hope everyone's summer was great.

Hi Deagol,

The 1979 Bakshi States 'Second Impression 1979'.

The 1982 Baynes Cover States 'Reprinted 1979, 1982'.

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes!

Remy - Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated.

A couple of questions if I may -

On the Bakshi 2nd Impression does it say 'Second Impression 1979', or 'Reprinted 1979'?

Similarly, on the Baynes 4th Impression does it have '4th Impression 1982', or 'Reprinted 1979, 19??, 1982'.
