This listing has always bugged me due to the laughable price and the claim that the books have the full number-line (despite being sealed in shrink-wrap).

Genuine question asked (by me):
"How do you know the books are 1st impressions, given that the set is in shrinkwrap, and is one that was issued with various impressions over the years?"

Answer received:

"Oh, please, do impart on us your eastern Antipodean methodology possibly relied upon given the available evidence."

==

I can only assume that means he has no evidence that they are the 1st impression set. I note he doesn't allow for refunds -- maybe he should read eBay's policy a bit more closely.

Here are a few more items I was able to find on eBay that may help further.

Here are some eBay results that may help guide you a bit (check the descriptions for which printing they were):

[ebayblock=171125560225][/ebayblock] [ebayblock=370965158318][/ebayblock]

The Bodleian poster is still available from their webstore (must have printed a lot of them):
http://www.bodleianshop.co.uk/j-r-r-tolkien-s-hobbit-poster.html
£6.99
[Update] The listing says "We sell so many, it's still in print over twenty years on!", so these current ones are reprints. I have no idea if the printing is indicated on the posters, or if the newer issues are distinguishable from other printings. My copy is in storage until I get settled further, so I cannot say for mine yet.

The postcards I seem to recall seeing for maybe $5 each or so on eBay off and on, but I cannot find any listings records at the moment.

I'll see if I can find anything else to help further over the weekend.
