I noticed that the dye on the top edges of my 1978 1st Impression 4th Edition Hobbit is blue and not green as I expected it should be.

The dye seems to be the same colour as was used on The Silmarillion.

I am interested to find out if this is a one off and they used the wrong colour dye (blue instead of green) or do all the 1978 1st Impressions have blue dye?

The later printings that I have for the 4th edition have green dye (4th and 5th Impression)

In over four centuries the Bodleian Libraries have assembled, through gift and purchase, many individual items which can be called works of genius. This exhibition looks at ways in which common attitudes towards genius are manifested in the physical form of a number of remarkable books and manuscripts, and considering the relationship between genius and learning, it explores ways in which the works of genius found in a university library can be acquired, collected and read.

Admission free

21st March to 20th September 2015 Opening hours

Monday-Friday: 10am-5pm
Saturday: 10am-5pm
Sunday: 11am-5pm

http://genius.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/

It is on at the same time as Oxonmoot, so if you are attending this year then you can easily visit the exhibition at the same time.
