A question and and a favor... [US Hobbit publishing Hx]

Subject: A question and and a favor... [US Hobbit publishing Hx]

First my question:

What is the name of the standard artwork on the hobbit cover?

This one:

Open in new window


Now my favor. Im working to try and flesh out the publishing history of later printings of the Hobbit from Houghton Mifflin and I have some gaps in the information I could find.

If you have any of the following printings of the Houghton Mifflin hardcover hobbit:

36
40
41
45
46
47
48
49
50
51
52
53

Could you please report here on:

- Stated Price
- Color of boards
- Color of printing on boards
- Brief description of text on inside front flap
- Brief description of text on inside back flap
- Most recent copyright date on copyright page
- Does the copyright page reference any UK editions?
- What is the full numberline (if any)
- If you bought it new, do you remember what year it was?
- Are there any owner inscribed dates written in the book?

This would be extremely helpful to me. Any pictures would be great.

When Im done I'll report back here with a summary of my data.

Thanks in advance for any help.
