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!

When you say you're hoping for some help; what sort of help do you mean? If it's a valuation, then sorry: I for one have no expertise in that sort of thing. We can give you some background on how the records came to be made though, if that's what you want.

I see the original article has Tolkein's (sic) name wrong. Nothing changes, does it?

While we're waiting for Christina and Wayne, I wonder if I might venture a response? - Pictures is a collection of works which appeared in calendars published between 1973 and 1979, with a gap in 1975. There are one or two other pieces, which did not feature in the calendars.

There are no writings of Tolkien's; the text is limited to a foreword by Christopher, and comments by him on each picture. It's a nice book, but there are problems; the main one being that the colours are not as in the original paintings. Take for instance Conversation with Smaug. The colours are washed out; Smuag's front claw is completely wrong!
