I'm not a calendar collector, but I ordered some books from Ebay a while back and included was an interesting item. It's a 2005 50th Anniversary Calendar signed by Priscilla Tolkien. It's inscribed: "For Pieter Willem With best wishes from Priscilla Tolkien" and includes a letter from Jan-Stefan van der Walt to the recipient (the calendar was a wedding gift apparently). It seems from what I've found online that the van der Walt family maintained Tolkien's father's grave in South Africa and assisted the Tolkien family in celebrating Tolkien's 100th birthday in Bloemfontein.

The condition is very good - there a few slight bends and a few light scuffs on the back. I have no particular attachment to the item and am interested in selling it. Any thoughts on value?

I believe the transparent slipcase is for the new 60th anniversary, 1-volume, Alan Lee illustrated LoTR. The new, 4-volume LoTR set with the Reader's Companion does appear to be a reissue of the 50th anniversary set (though with the updated Reader's Companion and a new ISBN).

Easton Press has a new Tolkien-related offering, The Making of Middle-earth by Christopher Snyder. Anyone familiar with this title?

For some reason, it doesn't come up under Fiction anymore, nor does it appear when I search "Unfinished Tales." I figured it was just some sort of glitch - hope to add it to the shelf in December!

The new Deluxe Unfinished Tales is no longer listed on tolkien.co.uk (hasn't been for a week at least). Any thoughts on whether or not this means anything?
