Re: Hobbit Unwin Books 1966 PB

Never seen one despite many years of searching. I did read in the A&U correspondence archive that they had a lot of trouble with the binding, so perhaps the number that made it out of the bindery was much less than the 20,000 copies printed.

Alternative theory- I don't have my notes on the correspondence to hand, but I wonder if there was an error in the impression numbering similar to the hardback edition, and the 16th Impression doesn't actually exist?
