Well, Bilbo's Last Song is a Seventh Impression, while the Map of Beleriand is a Second Impression.

The others just have the year on them.

Condition of them all is good - they are 'mounted' on (but NOT stuck to!) a cardboard backing, with a sheet of perspex over the front. The perspex and cardboard sandwich are clipped together with special mounting clips which DON'T pierce the poster.

I have a few large poster maps that have been illustrated by the wonderful Pauline Baynes, and some by Tolkien himself (coloured, but I'm assuming that this was done afterwards by the printer?), and am curious if they are worth anything (money is short I'm afraid!).

I've had them for about 24 years, more in some cases.

Note: they are not signed (sorry to say).

As follows:

Bilbo's Last Song illustrated by Pauline Baynes

Map of Middle-Earth illustrated by Pauline Baynes (the Fellowship at the top, Black Riders at the bottom)

Map of Beleriand (and the lands to the north) - with drawings of the emblems of the various Elven houses top and bottom - drawings of the embles by Tolkiien, map drawing by his son, Christopher

'Combined' poster - at the top is Thror's Map, at the bottom is Wilderland - both maps as seen in The Hobbit, map of Wilderland is in full colour

Bilbo Comes to the Huts of the Raft Elves - this is a poster advertisement for a 1987 exhibition at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, 'Drawings for The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien' - this contains a large print of Tolkien's original drawing, now in colour

Are they worth anything to collectors?

Many thanks
