It has been a quiet month at TolkienBooks.net. There have been just two updates to the bibliography, both courtesy of fellow collectors - THANK YOU!
First up is an image of A Spring Harvest by G.B. Smith, an anthology of poetry including an introductory note by JRRT. It is especially pleasing to see this very uncommon book at last!
The second update relates to the First Paperback Edition of The Lord of the Rings. The size of the book was reduced from 210 x 140mm to 204 x 128mm beginning with the 4th Impression.
To compensate for the lack of activity I have extracted details of print run sizes for the Second American Edition of The Hobbit from correspondence between the publisher Houghton Mifflin and its British counterpart George Allen & Unwin. The information is taken directly from Allen & Unwin publishing ledgers and associated correspondence, and is presented together with previously published details of the Second British Edition.
