The 1991 J.R.R.Tolkien Calendar John Howe Color Art Very Good Ballantine Stated "First American Edition 10987654321 August 1990" 1990. Illus. by John Howe. Very Good. Decorative Card Covers. 1st Edition. 8vo The 1991 J.R.R.Tolkien Calendar Original No packaging Clean NO Writing NOT a library copy. 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 extreme 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. NO Writing in Calendar days. 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. Handsome calendar unwritten some flaws but awesome.Since 1977 Three Geese In Flight specializes in Celtic and Arthurian myth with Lord of the Rings as our inspiration (Ian Ballantine was a friend to our shop in Woodstock) and wrap your books the way we like to receive books. . First Edition.
