I haven't seen it before. Beyond Bree's "Tolkienalia" does not list it. Perhaps Wayne will weigh in, or another likely source of information would be Sumner Hunnewell.

Evidently it is a promo poster from Ballantine books, I am guessing from the content. Is there a copyright or other fine print you can see? Do you own this, or did you run across one for sale?

If you have access, can you get me more images I can put into the Guide? I like this poster!

What do you guys think of this one?

Signed Beowulf on eBay

It has a nice image of the dedication, so lots of handwriting to see.

So... how many collectors here have smart phones now (a phone with a web browser in it)?

I must say, having one available when I am out shopping not only means that I can have access to Amazon, addall.com, eBay, and other sites to check availability and prices, but also it is sort of what I envision the Guide moving towards as an online resource.

And I love all the posts about moving your collections! I haven't moved in years now, but before this house I used to move at least once a year (renter in a very volatile market.) Thankfully all of the moves were quite local and I had access to both places for a while, so I could carefully pack a few boxes at a time and carry them myself from one place to another.

I am really looking forward to seeing the 2009 calendar. Just as a side note, Anthony mentioned that he has a few of the 2008 calendar left for those who missed out on it. Great artwork, and a great collectible too! Just get in touch with him if you are interested at
