Hi! Someone contacted me on ebay asking if I knew which of the ICE MERP books have A0-size poster maps, like in the Mirkwood books. Anybody know, so I can get back to him?

Are you looking for info about 1st ed MERP books, or 2nd ed MERP books? I can help with the former ... not so much with the latter.

I don't think any of the books actually have a single page A0-sized map. That would be huge.

Most of the fold-out maps are 16" x 20".

I agree.  Nothing that is actually A0 size - that would a map a little under 3' x 4'.  See here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_216

I wouldn't think there was anything included with a module bigger than A3 or A2 size.

Here's the map info for the 1st ed MERP Campaign Module items. If you're looking for something different, let me know. I have almost all 1st ed MERP stuff. I only have a few 2nd ed MERP items.

All these map sizes are approximate, and are measured in inches. The ones that say 16x20 are actually closer to 17x22, but the front/back of the module happens to list them as 16x20.

2300 Angmar Land of the Witch King
       Includes double-sided color 16x20 fold-out map, with a more primitive style of cartography compared to Pete Fenlon's later work

2400 Umbar Haven of the Corsairs
       Includes double-sided color 16x20 fold-out map

2500 The Court of Ardor in Southern Middle Earth
       Includes double-sided color 16x20 fold-out map

2600 Northern Mirkwood The Wood-Elves Realm (all versions)

2800 Isengard and Northern Gondor (both the 1983 and 1987 versions)
       Includes double-sided color 16x20 fold-out map; note that there is not a full 16x20 overland area depicted on it, but rather several smaller maps & floorplans on each side

2900 Moria The Dwarven City
       Does not include a large color fold-out map, though the inside-front and inside-back cover are each a single-page color map

3000 Rangers of the North The Kingdom of Arthedain
       Includes two double-sided color 11x17 fold-out maps

3100 Riders of Rohan (1985 version)
       Includes two double-sided 11x17 fold-out maps; one is color on both sides, and the second is color on one side and black & white on the other

3100 Riders of Rohan (1987 version)
       Includes two double-sided color 11x17 fold-out maps

3200 Lorien & the Halls of the Elven Smiths
       Includes two double-sided color 11x17 fold-out maps

3300 Havens of Gondor Land of Belfalas
       Includes two double-sided 11x17 fold-out maps; one is color on both sides, and the second is color on one side and black & white on the other

       Includes two-page color map in the center of the booklet that isn't intended to be removed

3111 Greater Harad
       Includes double-sided color 17x22 fold-out map

3112 Gorgoroth
       Includes double-sided 17x22 fold-out map that's color on one side and black & white on the other; note that both sides are broken up into several smaller maps.
