Need help identifying a vintage poster

Postby tazza » Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:46 pm

Hi guys!
I have recently come across this poster.
It is quite large. On the top left corner it reads a "There and back again, a map of bilbo's journey through Eriador and Rhovanion".
On the bottom it reads "Drawn and embellished by Pauline Baynes. Based on the cartography of J.R.R Tolkien. First trade printing 1971. Fifth impression 1976. George allen and unwin (publishers) ltd 1971 ISBN 0 04 912004 2. Printed in Great Britan by Wealsterham Press Limited"
I would also like to know, are these posters common, or quite rare? I have never seen one on ebay.
Thanks for the help guys!

Here is a link for a larger image.
