I'm sure Parmastahir, who regularly updates this forum on his Tolkien calendar collecting (over in the 'Calendar' part of the forum), would be more than happy to advise you on where to sell (and who to perhaps).

Either that or eBay. Since I don't seriously collect calendars I'll leave value & collectability to those who know more...

Good stuff...

I'm not suggesting the review copy I have is any different from any other Billing copies of The Silmarillion; it is identical as far as I can see. But it is a Billing copy, and I was just curious (if it were possible to determine) how pre-publication it was. Likewise if dates could be put on the Clowes dummy copies it could help build a clearer picture of printing priority between different printers i.e. the old Clowes were in production first as they had to be shipped abroad chestnut.

Rowns, a US HoME copy of Lays just went on eBay for about £30; it was some sort of uncorrected proof copy (as you mention)...

Remy, can I get that 1998 Silmarillion 'Review' copy of you have?

Thanks for that guys.

How pre-publication do you reckon review copies are? A couple of weeks? (falling between dummy copies & publication copies).

Does anyone else have any 'review' copies of Tolkien books?

Although interested in hearing about the earlier years of publishing (i.e. when Tolkien was alive), I'm particularly looking to see if anyone else has stumbled across any review 'slips' which came with otherwise normal books.

I just bought a copy of The Silmarillion (interestingly a Billing copy), which has a GA&U slip laid in. It is not specifically for Tolkien. It begins We have pleasure in sending the accompanying book for review; and has four blank areas where the title, author, price, and publication date can be (in this case) typed in. It adds Please ensure no review appears before the publication date.

Anyone seen anything similar? (perhaps in UT). Were these 'slips' used in any pre-Silmarillion Tolkien titles?

It had already been listed at £699; no bidders. This is it re-listed. One bidder this time though...
