Lyni,

Some of members do collect calendars, and one Parmastahir has a website devoted to them, http://www.tolkiencalendars.com/

This is the description for your NZ Calendar

"1976 George Allen & Unwin (New Zealand)

ISBN: 0 04 529002 4
VARIANT: “The Hobbit Calendar 1976” Illustrations by Professor Tolkien; colored by H. E. Riddett. Dimensions: 13 x 12.5 inches (w x h); stapled; light-weight, white paperboard mailer printed with theme similar to the cover of the calendar.

Rarity: 9 Has appeared on eBay three times that I know of. As a commercial issue, assume that there are more "out there". But collecting issues from New Zealand is very difficult. (x)
"

Hopefully someone will be interested :)

If you going to British Museum then make sure that you also visit Museum Street, if you have not been before. The GA&U sign is still there for Ruskin House :)

The description is not that useful for the listing, are they all first impressions?

I can see that the Tales is not the signed version.

"All books are Harper Collins editions."

If we ever do a thread on what are the worst covers of the Lord of the Rings?

Then the Michael Herring editions must rank quite highly.

As a collector, who has a strict rule of only collecting UK editions of Tolkien's books, I now have quite a few US editions :)

I can't bring myself to buy this set though.

I have sent an email with the UK address to send it to.
