1976 George Allen & Unwin

"The Hobbit Calendar 1976" Illustrations by Professor Tolkien (coloration by H. E. Riddett). This calendar has always been a personal favorite. Perhaps it's the Professor's personal representations of Middle-earth. Maybe it's the coloring which seems to add to, rather than detract from, the images. Perhaps it's the fact that it's an early issue (only third in the A&U series.) It is also a large (A3) calendar.
