I've added what I know to the Calendar section (main menu on the left) for this book. Just started playing with the Calendar last night, so let me know what I might be able to do to improve it.

Here's a quick link straight to the book in question:

The History of the Hobbit

There's a puzzle for the first one as well (The Map of Middle-earth).

Bilbo's Last Song (the poster) is actually the true first edition for that Tolkien poem. I don't have my Hammond at this computer to give the reference, but I thought that was an interesting tidbit.

There was a deluxe LOTR boxed set from Ballantine in the early 70's (larger trade paperback format) that had full color Baynes illustrations on each cover, and the Map on the box.

That truly is an awesome piece of bibliographical research, Deagol! I haven't seen an early boxed set recently, and don't have one on hand at the moment, but will pass on details of all future sets I see.

Parmastahir - I am working on a US paperback article for the site which should help you out. I have had fun in the past year or so looking for new/sealed boxed sets going back as far as the gold sigil set - haven't run across any BREM sets still in original shrinkwrap, but you never know! I doubt I'll find a green box still wrapped, though.

Deagol - I'd be interested to know if you have ever run across any early GA&U correspondence (while Tolkien was still alive) about The Silmarillion being planned in multiple volumes, as Clyde Kilby and others state in various correspondence from the late '60s.

Doesn't really cover the Peter Jackson movie editions, but is extremely complete otherwise.

Both excellent sites! Hopefully we'll get a links page up to organize these better, but in the meantime...
