location:

name of company:

Land of Legend

mailing catalog was:

typed on typewriter

exact date:

1977

Saved from the 1970’s, an original mailing Catalog from a company that only sold Lord of the Rings / J.R.R. Tolkien / Middle Earth items.

Land of Legend

111 Pleasant Street

Berrien Springs, Michigan 49103

Dated  November 1977

The company wrote in the letter that they were unable to get their complete catalogue of Middle Earth Magic done, so they were sending this less glossy and less detailed version for Christmas 1977. (I do not know if they ever got what they described as the full catalog done.)

This is a great piece of vintage Tolkien / Middle Earth / Lord of the Rings “love” from the 1970s -  a small company, way before the Internet, totally devoted to those of us that were the Tolkien nerds of the 1970s. –

“You are the ones that have made this "all – Tolkien" business possible, and we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to completely service your Middle-earth needs.”

You can tell the catalog was created with a typewriter and then photocopied. It feels like a real chore done with love.

Catalog consists of  six double-sided pages, or 12 sheets with printing. Sheets were then folded and mailed.   Pages are the size of copy paper - approx 8 1/2 by 11 inches.

  • A letter dated November, 1977  signed by owner or head of the company,  Wendell L. Hill, Jr. (It looks like a real signature!?)
  • 2 ½ pages of the products with price and shipping and handling costs (shipping and handling for most items was 50 or 75 cents)
  • Half a page devoted to Tolkien Record Albums and Tapes (cassette tapes)
  • Half a page devoted to games (this is way before video games) – Quest of the Magic Ring and new Middle-Earth strategy Games from SPI:  War of the Ring; Gondor: the Siege of Minas Tirith;  Sauron:  The Battle for the Ring – or all 3 in a special super package entitled Middle-Earth:  The Wars of Middle Earth.
  • A page devoted to Calendar items – (Remember the Brothers Hildebrandt illustrations - ) the Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien calendar for 1978, and The Silmarillion Calendar.
  • A page devoted to Middle-Earth T-Shirts – brand new from Hummel House – T-shirts imprinted with your favorite characters
  • A page devoted to Jigsaw Puzzles
  • Complete unused order form, also.

Condition:  A wonderful piece of vintage 1970s obsession with J. R. R. Tolkien. very good vintage – No rips, No tears, No writing. Possibly some age toning.  The original mailing label has been removed.
