(At the risk of double-posting, as I posted this message under the Calendars, Posters, and Other Artwork forum, also)

Happy July to Everyone!

I have updated my Tolkien calendar website with a few additions and the Calendar of the Month feature. That calendar is the 1976 issue illustrated by the Brothers Hildebrandt in respect to Tim Hildebrandt who passed away on 11 June. Check it all out at:

www.angelfire.com/tn3/tolkiencalendars

Would be pleased to hear from anyone with comments or a discovery!

Thanks, Beren.

What was that line in LotR about the praise of the praiseworthy?

If your purpose was two-fold (to determine what people thought of this idea and spark an animated conversation), success!

I will offer only one comment about "everybody skips the higher priced items and successfully buys a lower priced copy without much effort". I submit that if "everybody" is defined as those knowledgeable of the market (and the vagaries resulting from the ebb and flow of interest), then "yes" I agree. However, the market (eBay, in this instance) is attended by newbies who haven't a clue and will often overpay for items. We could discuss this at length . . .

For the items that one (the books for you, in particular) wishes to track, any compilation would be useful only to those with that particular interest. I don't collect the books (with a few boxed sets of the paperbacks being an exception). So I haven't a clue about the worth of 1st edition, 3rd printing. I have, however, offered comments about the value of various Tolkien calendars to people who have contacted me via my website. You may find it ironic that I based my comments on the hundreds of eBay auctions that I have checked out.

In the end, it comes down to "Do you have the inclination and/or time to do this?" and "Is the result worth the effort?" Only you can answer those questions.

I updated my calendar website. Have added a few new calendars. Updated the Calendar-of-the-Month feature for June (FINALLY!) And, per a suggestion from Beren, categorized a fair number of the calendars by country or society. (Did not categorize the numerous Ballantine or Allen&Unwin - or their successors - issues.) Hope you enjoy!

Away from the Green Hill Country,
