The list of offices and the advertisements are identical for the first and second printings.

This is an interesting book, a 1st printing with commentary from the original buyer.

eBay Item #221519251942

The original buyer in 1962, stated that "This edition, alas, is spoiled by inappropriate illustrations".

I don't agree with these sentiments, but it is interesting that Pauline Baynes, was still being questioned as an illustrator in 1962.

Two questions

Does anyone know if this impression has any adverts in the back, if so are they same as these, from the second impression?

Is the list of GA&U offices the same as the second impression? (This, for perfectly understandable reasons, appears to the last time that the Leipzig address is listed as a GA&U office)

Thanks in advance.

Very similar item to the book that my Uncle found, listed on eBay.

The world is insane if a 1970s LoTR is worth that much, signature or otherwise.
