re: the First Printing (16th Impression Stated) of the 1966 Paperback Edition of the Hobbit published by Unwin Books

It most certainly does exist - I have one here in my hand. I also have a fifteenth impression hardback (1965) and a hardback sixteenth impression (1966), and a Longman's edition.

My Unwin Books paperback is in Very Good condition; very clean white pages; unfaded cover illustration, with '8s 6d' on the front cover. A lovely copy, esp. considering the age - its only flaw being a slight crease on the upper cover.

The copyright page lists the entire history of TH, from 1937 onwards. This list concludes:

'Fifteenth impression 1965
Third edition (sixteenth impression) 1966'

Then, after the paragraph abot the Berne Convention, it reads:

'This edition c George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1966.'
