U.S.A.: Ballantine Books, 1990. Book. Illus. by John Howe. Very Good. Decorative Card Covers. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. The 1991 J.R.R.Tolkien Calendar Original Stated "First American Edition August 1990" The 1991 J.R.R.Tolkien Calendar No packaging Clean NO Writing NOT a library copy. Near Very Good shape. Bottom edges of the front and back corners of the covers creased where a fellow Tolkien lover flipped thru the pages. Half inch rub with a touch of loss to the edge of the front cover a inch down from the top. It is where someone held this with their thumb so many times it rubbed the cover white. One can see why, the paintings in this calendar are so much better than so many. The picture of Glorfindel Elven lord fighting a Balrog is perhaps one of the finest illustrations in interpretive art of J.R.R.Tolkien. Glorfindel is one of Tolkien's finest achievements in understated character power. Except for Legolas the movie Two Towers made the Elves like space men that Tolkien would have hated. Since 1977 Three Geese In Flight specializes in Celtic and Arthurian myth with Lord of the Rings as our inspiration and wrap your books the way we like to receive books. . First Edition.
