I don't claim to be a completist - but I do have several areas of interest in collecting, aside from the mainstream stuff; for instance I enjoy collecting Tolkien's contributions to academic journals and poetry collections. My collection has a good range of items; beginning with 'Oxford Poetry 1915' and several titles from the 20s onwards.

I have all of those except Tolkien's Middle-Earth & Monsters. Hmm, that's irritating... >grin< - now I'll have to find one.

However, my total also comes to six because I have in addition 'The Brothers Hildebrandt - Their Tolkien Art'(Running Press, 2001).

Twelve postcards; and, they're magnetic!

The vendor does say he's open to 'sensible offers'. My copy cost £10.00, but that was a long time ago. ..

>Your comments have seemingly confirmed what I suspected: that my calendar is a rather rare, very personal, and precious item.<

Yes, it is all that. :) A thing of beauty; a joy forever.

Tolkien's 'Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics' is still under copyright; so is Drout's edition of Tolkien's works.

I take issue with the 'copyright evidence' given on that site for a Middle English Vocabulary: I believe Sisam's book has been re-issued, with Tolkien's glossary. The evidence which states that someone looked at a 1922 copy and didn't see a copyright notice is hardly conclusive. I have copies of Sisam,from the 20s and 30s - they don't have copyright notices. Neither do Essays and Studies; nor The Year's Work in English Studies, nor The Review of English Studies. As far as I know, copyright notices were not common in those days.

This begs the question; who holds the copyright? It may be the publication - eg Tolkien was commissioned to write the pieces on Philology: general Works for YWES. But I'd have thought work such as his middle English Vocabulary were Tolkien's copyright, which as I understand it, lasts for 70 years after his death - not 70 or in this case, 87 years after the work was published.

A Middle English Vocabulary is easily available in book form - I see no reason to take it from the web; esp. if copyright is an issue.
