This is a rare item. It is made by Jonelle of Irish linen and states "Copyright 1971 George Allen and Unwin Ltd Design JRR Tolkein/Pauline Baynes. It depicts the map of 'There and Back Again' a map of Bilbo's Journey Through Eriador and Rhovanion. I have been able to find out through a related website (tolkienguide.com) that the tea towels were given to Allen and Unwin staff at a launch and that Tolkien attended and was presented with one too. According to the person who posted the information she/he verified it by seeing an unrelated letter by Tolkein that said he had received a tea towel and was very pleased with it!I have said it is used but there is no sign of wear. The colours are bright and there are no stains, wear or holes. It is in very good condition. Any questions then please contact me
