Re: Looking for someone with a 15th impression of The Hobbit

The 14th Impression was printed in the UK and has the endpaper maps printed in black and red.

The 15th Impresion was printed in the US and has the endpaper maps in black only. The text is pretty much identical because it was a photographic reproduction of the 14th Impression. There is a differnce on the last page of text though - see below.

There is a good article on American Hobbits at Wikipedia:
