Hi, I'm new to the forum and wondered if anyone has any info on a set of posters I found whilst clearing out my father's house. I think they're from the 1975 uk reissue of The Hobbit and were printed by Camden Graphics, I believe they're Tolkiens own artwork and are entitled The Forest of Lothlorien in Spring, Bilbo comes to the Huts of the Raft Elves, Bilbo awoke with the early sun in his eyes, Conversation with Smaug and The hill: hobbiton-across-the-water. I've done a bit of research and can't find another set of these posters anywhere, does anyone know anything about them? I have had a valuation from an auction house specialising in collectors memorabilia but don't know whether I want to sell them at this stage. Any info would be gratefully received x

There was a previous thread on these. Not a huge amount of information, unfortunately.

I have seen a few images from another collector's website, here:

Are the ones (labeled by Camden) the same as the ones you have?

Yes! Conversation with Smaug is identical, first one I've seen :)
