First edition. Spiral bound calendar for 1978. Front cover and each month illustrated by Tolkien, with ‘Notes On The Pictures’, written by Christopher Tolkien. House in the original mailing envelope, lettered in red, with the emblem of Lúthien Tinúviel printed in blue.


A fine example in a very good envelope, the envelope a little browned.


Allen & Unwin issued their first Tolkien calendar in 1973 (The J.R.R. Tolkien Calendar 1974), before turning to individual books as their inspiration, with The Hobbit Calendar 1976; The Lord Of The Rings Calendar 1977; and the present example which was issued shortly after the September 1977 publication of The Silmarillion.
