Re: Two Towers 1st/1st?

Sadly, It was very difficult, the first Houghton Mifflin Impression of The Two Towers was issued in April 1955 and was only 1000 copies, so probably the scarcest of all the Tolkien First Impressions. The pre-1960 copies of the HM book lack printing data on the Title Page.

You need to look at Steven M. Frisby's article in The Tolkien Collector (No 21) to work it out, lot of steps to go through as HM did not easily identify the editions, six steps to check including the Dust-Jacket.
