I sorry but this seller should know better than to advertise this item as a 1966 or 1968 Hobbit, when in the pictures you can see it is a 1975 Hobbit.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOLKIEN-THE ... ction&hash=item1e7714f279

Some very confused quotes from the seller, seems to like Capitals for some reason.

"TOLKIEN: THE HOBBIT; UK 3RD EDITION 1966 HB DW - RARE LORD OF THE RINGS RELATED

TRUE UK 3RD EDITION 10TH PRINT

Publisher: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1968 (10th impression)
"

That would be 1975 (the 10th printing of the Third Edition was printed in 1975), where has 1966 or 1968 come from?
