The first calendar was published by Ballantine, the later ones by George Allen and Unwin. Here, you'll find Toliens visionof the Hill in Hobbiton-across-the-water; the Trolls; the three trolls truned to stone; Rivendell looking west; Rivendell looking east; Rivendell (as it appeared in several published versions of the books); the mountain path; the Misty Mountain looking West from the Eyrie towards Goblin Gate; Bilbo woke with the early sun in his eyes (with the Eagles); Beorn's Hall; the Elvenking's gate (two versions); Bilbo comes to the huts of the Raft-elves (two versions); Lake Town; the Front Gate; Conversation with Smaug; SMaug flies round the mountain; the death of Smaug; the Hall at Bag End, residence of B.
