Recently acquired the 1969 Tim Kirk calendar - serendipity! Quite beautiful, and well made too. Anyone know what paper it was printed on? It is quite thick, almost waxy, and has a distinct texture.

Not sure if this really counts as a Lucky Find, but I just acquired a fine copy of the HC Tolkien Family Album 1st for AUD 3.05 (+ postage), and it turns out to have been an Australian distributor/ publisher's review copy with an A4 slip folded inside.

Mind you, thanks to uber-expensive Australia Post, the shipping was 12 bucks. I suppose the distance from the bit of Australia that it came from to me in Brisbane was probably larger than crossing the whole of Europe...

Been looking for a 1st edition HM Fellowship with a DJ to complete the set. Didn't find that, but did pick up all three HM 1st editions (no DJ's) in fair/good condition for $20. Might look OK with some facsimile DJ's?

That is a good deal. Had I seen it, I would have bought it.
If I didn't already have one.
Signed.
