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!

I haven't heardof the book myself, but I suppose it's an anthology of pieces by former pupils fo the Dragon School in Oxford. Christopher went there. Didn't know Emma Watson went there, though. Google Old Dragons; Wiki has something on it. I expect you'll find something on the Dragon School website, too.
