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

Could you scan it and post it here?

I'll root it out when I get home later today and see what I can do.

I've got one of these. Not at home to check, but my booklist says 1966.
