According to Scull & Hammond, Tolkien was at Bedford for a month in 1915. But I don't think that's the reason the street is named after him. Take a look at the map:

Yes, the copyright page matches the 1st printing; down to the 'Cover illustration by Pauline Baynes', which leads me to ask: if these few were specially bound at the printers, why isn't there something to say so, on this page or elsewhere?

I think someone somewhere along the line is not being entirely accurate.
it looks to me like just another re-bound 1st paperback.

BTW - the phrase is 'half-bound'; not 'three quarter bound'.

Heh. No need for concern; I was neither offended nor incensed. It was a kind thought, but I'm not planning on selling any of the collection yet.

In fact, the plan - if I were so organized ad to have a plan - is to leave the stuff to my kids; then the collection will go back out into he secondhand market again, and (hopefully) some future collectors will get the same buzz that I got when happening across some choice piece.

Hi Parmastahir

I'm a keen reader of your site; the calendars form a major part of my interest in Tolkien collecting.
I have all of the Allen&Unwin/Harper Collins ones, plus a few of the US ones, and a smattering of European ones.

I appreciate that your 'rarity' rating can only be subjective; but I'd say that evaluations of this kind by a specialist such as yourself are of great value.

As to the Kalendar - no; no sleeve, alas! Though my 1974 Allen and Unwin calendar has one; or rather, part of one. (are they meant to be split like that?)

Whilst on the subject of rarity, I've been meaning to tell you that I've also got one of these -

http://www.tolkiencalendars.com/STI1998.html

- it's got a punched hole, and is disbound. The seller sent it to me in a plain grey carton, which keeps it nice and fresh.

Sorry - none of the calendars are for sale.

Rare, eh! That's cool - I've got one of those. Must have bought it years ago; at Oxonmoot, most likely.

I agree with the sentiments about Fangorn - a fine gent X I mean, Ent!
