I was comparing the first printing of The Hobbit with the pictures shown here, and even though the limitation numbers do not appear, the ISBN number is different, so must be a later printing.

2004 1st Printing ISBN 0 00 711835 X
2012 Later Printing ISBN 978 0 00 711835 9



The bigger giveaway is that the later editions of LOTR, The Hobbit and Silmarillion are all printed by "Printing Express, Hong Kong".
