About the dust jacket you also know why is fairly common to find non matching books and dust jacket?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Anyway I will keep those books in my little collection.


Out of interest are your copies price-clipped?

As regards impression numbers on the dust-jackets, Tolkien's publisher GA&U would use up any printed dust-jackets that they had available, did not care that the impression number may be different to the impression in the book.

I have wondered for a long time, why they sometimes printed the impression number on the dust-jackets at all?


FR and TT are price clipped, ROTK is not.

This thing about not matching dust jacket it's very strange, as you said it's not difficult print books and dust jacket at the same time.

You have some precious books?

Definition of price-clipped

http://biblio.co.uk/book_collecting_t ... ogy/price-clipped-47.html

It is fairly common to find UK copies of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings from this period with different impression dust-jackets.

Did they switch printing to China?


Like I say, the book I receeived is identical in every respect to the first one, so it isn't clear whether it is a second print from the same printers without the "I" being changed to a "2" or if BD are still supplying from the first print run. Until anyone spies one with a "2", I don't think we will know.
