Early Tolkien fanzine -- the first? -- the first fanzine of the Mythopoeic Society, devoted to the works of J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams, (and the Inklings literary society), from early Tolkien fandom, featuring artwork by Tim Kirk, George Barr, Bernie Zuber, and others, and literary essays. This is a historic and powerful zine. Conferences, more zines, the explosion of Tolkien fandom were catalyzed by this zine and the Mythopoeic Society. Both Tim Kirk and George Barr went on to win "Best Fan Artist" and "Best Profesional Artist" Hugo awards. Tim became the foremost Tolkien interpreter and did the art for the first Tolkien Calendar (see my auction). Condition: cover is messed up, maybe Good: the rest is very fine with slight yellowing and page warping from moisture, not actually water damage. The cover has folds, one quarter size drop mark, and minor staining.
