I received TH as a Christmas present in 1973, when I was 7; and bought LotR and QS in 1980. I still have these copies of TH and LotR, but I lost QS a few years ago

Jeremy

It isn't available for purchase, unfortunately. HarperCollins wouldn't let it be published properly, so there was just a print run of 30, which Richard (my father in law) can give (but not sell) to family and friends.

Did Santa bring us all something last week? I was clearly very nice, because this is what I found in my stocking ...

laurel, I must have missed it for the same reason as you!

And there was indeed a Tolkien Society library in 1977.
