From the Beyond Bree "List of Tolkienalia" (1992), page 22:

"MIDDLE EARTH": top, "BEING A MAP PURPORTING TO TRACE THE DIVERS ROUTES TAKEN BY THE COMPANIONS OF/ THE RING DURING THEIR HEROIC AND HISTORICAL JOURNEYS THROUGH MIDDLE EARTH -". Center - map. Bottom, "MIDDLE EARTH"; left corner, "Based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS/ BY J.R.R. TOLKIEN' AUTHORISED by -/ The American Publisher Houghton Miflin [sic] Co."; right corner, "Bruin Inc, Publisher/ 342 Madison Ave, N.Y., N.Y."; 3-color, no date, 30x40".

The footnote says that there is a photocopy of one in the Hunnewell collection. I can inquire if he remembers anything else about it, if you like.

Ah, 11 June 1933 entry of the Chronology is where it is called out. Missed it before!

And it was an Honorary membership.

I am seeing in multiple references (online, and in print dating back to the 60s) that Tolkien was a(n honorary) member of the Icelandic Literary Society, Hid Íslenska Bokmennta-Felag. I don't see any mention of this in the Reader's Guide or Chronology, Carpenter's Biography, or a few other sources I checked. Anyone have additional information?

@Stu and @Berelach - I kind of agree with both of you. When a rare or uncommon item shows up and sells for a good price, that can definitely nudge other sellers to dig out their own copy and list as well. I don't think that happened here in this particular case though - I agree with Stu that we are probably just sensitized to the title having just sold a copy so recently. I do see these on the market every now and then, but definitely most copies are priced higher than I think they will find buyers at. Seeing two copies around the reasonable £100 price point is definitely unusual.
