I have a short stack of original copies of this 2012 Houghton Mifflin Tolkien catalog available to ship to interested collectors (just pay shipping costs to wherever you are). It is a nice card-stock twelve page listing of everything they released that year (you can peruse the entire thing via the link below). I will add a scan of the cover in a bit. ... es/brochure/brochure.html

I'd love my copies to look this this, they don't

Tolkien is very blue on the LOTR set that I have.

Waldenbooks (bookseller here in the USA back in the seventies and eighties) ad for Silmarillion release.

Not quite a publisher advert but similar enough I thought I would include it when I ran across it.

Unfinished Tales mini catalog (pre-release) from Houghton Mifflin to booksellers. Weird folding pattern that didn't scan well, might include a photo soon that shows what order the panels go when you open it up.

Anybody have any idea when this was issued, I would guess 1964.

It is included with a set of 1950's UK Lord of the Rings.

Couldn't enlarge the photo to read (but have one of these somewhere).

From memory (may be wrong) it is promotional leaflet/booklet issued with the 2nd Edition of the Lord of the Rings in 1966
