First issue of Legolas released at FinnCon SF convention in Aug. 1991, and is considered to be Vol. 1. Beginning with Vol. 2, there are also issue numbers.

"Legolas is Finland's best, greatest and only fantasy literature publication. Published also four times per year, it contains articles about Tolkien, fantasy in general, and everything more or less connected with it. Each issue also contains at least one short story. Legolas is size A5 as well, ranging from 40 to 70 pages. Cooperation with other societies has led to special issues. These include Kosmoskynä-Legolas (Cosmic Pen - Legolas) with The Finnish Science Fiction Writers Association and Legolarppaaja (Legolarper, LARP = Live Action RolePlaying), with The Finnish Live Action Role Players' Association). In 1994 an issue of Legolas called Greenleaf was published in English for the Northern Tolkien-festival. A second international issue of Greenleaf was published in 2003, just before the Eurocon in Finland." (from Suomen Tolkien-seura website)
