I have a few large poster maps that have been illustrated by the wonderful Pauline Baynes, and some by Tolkien himself (coloured, but I'm assuming that this was done afterwards by the printer?), and am curious if they are worth anything (money is short I'm afraid!).

I've had them for about 24 years, more in some cases.

Note: they are not signed (sorry to say).

As follows:

Bilbo's Last Song illustrated by Pauline Baynes

Map of Middle-Earth illustrated by Pauline Baynes (the Fellowship at the top, Black Riders at the bottom)

Map of Beleriand (and the lands to the north) - with drawings of the emblems of the various Elven houses top and bottom - drawings of the embles by Tolkiien, map drawing by his son, Christopher

'Combined' poster - at the top is Thror's Map, at the bottom is Wilderland - both maps as seen in The Hobbit, map of Wilderland is in full colour

Bilbo Comes to the Huts of the Raft Elves - this is a poster advertisement for a 1987 exhibition at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, 'Drawings for The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien' - this contains a large print of Tolkien's original drawing, now in colour

Are they worth anything to collectors?

Many thanks

OK... thanks for that feedback... I'll see what I can do, since changing stuff in ebay seems not so straight forward, but I'll try to get it all done as soon as possible!

Sounds great Beren! Looks great too.

I did note (after digging around a little) that your items are not visible on eBay.com or eBay.co.uk - a user has to be on ebay.be in order to find your items in search results. (It also prevents me from putting up a dynamic widget here listing your auction items). Is there anything you can do on your end to get your items listed more internationally?

I have finally started... thinning out my collection! I have talked about it for a long time, but I have finally decided to do it. I did set up an ebay store and will (over the next month or year) keep adding items... now just started with the calendars:
http://shop.benl.ebay.be/cottage_of_l ... .html?_trksid=p4340.l2562

You might all want to follow my store, since next to the common stuff I'll be listing some older material as well. I plan to sell of at least 3000 to 6000 items so it will be a fun thing for me to list them all and probably nice for some collectors as well.
