Hi Garm -

Did your copy come with/in a mailer or sleeve? My copy is "just" the calendar. I have not been able to confirm if this issue originally was in a box (as was the 1974 A&U variant.) Any advice that you (or others here) have would be appreciated!

As to rarity, that's my subjective take on it. As noted in "Rarity" rankings, there are probably still a fair number of these floating around somewhere. They just don't show up on eBay (and I'm not actively pursuing a copy as I have one.) But should you ever wish to part with your copy, please let me know. I could put you in contact with several fellow calendar enthusiasts!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm

Hi Parmastahir

I'm a keen reader of your site; the calendars form a major part of my interest in Tolkien collecting.
I have all of the Allen&Unwin/Harper Collins ones, plus a few of the US ones, and a smattering of European ones.

I appreciate that your 'rarity' rating can only be subjective; but I'd say that evaluations of this kind by a specialist such as yourself are of great value.

As to the Kalendar - no; no sleeve, alas! Though my 1974 Allen and Unwin calendar has one; or rather, part of one. (are they meant to be split like that?)

Whilst on the subject of rarity, I've been meaning to tell you that I've also got one of these -

http://www.tolkiencalendars.com/STI1998.html

- it's got a punched hole, and is disbound. The seller sent it to me in a plain grey carton, which keeps it nice and fresh.

Sorry - none of the calendars are for sale.

Hi Garm -

I am very pleased to know that you find my site useful. I created it to be so. As you noted, it's a very specialized collection. So the number of collectors is small (and "we" all know who "we" are for the most part. But there seemed to be an influx of new people recently if I interpret a flurry of activity/purchases of these calendars on eBay correctly.)

As to the 1974 A&U mailer: You can view a fully intact one on my website. Just go to its listing in the 1969-1974 section and click on the green "mailer" link. It has tear strip to open it. Some people did. I always separated the glued flap on the back and kept the mailer essentially intact.

I'll have to add your dainties to a list that I keep so I know (or can remember!) where copies of various calendars are. Hope I did not offend you when I mentioned selling your calendar. My intent was not to get it from you. It was an offer to put you in contact with other calendar collectors and avoid the costs associated with eBay and PayPal. Some people get very incensed about mere suggestion of parting with any of their Tolkienalia.

Congratulations on the 1998 S.T.I. That's another goodie. I keep mine in Tyvek envelopes.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm

Heh. No need for concern; I was neither offended nor incensed. It was a kind thought, but I'm not planning on selling any of the collection yet.

In fact, the plan - if I were so organized ad to have a plan - is to leave the stuff to my kids; then the collection will go back out into he secondhand market again, and (hopefully) some future collectors will get the same buzz that I got when happening across some choice piece.
