I had the same problem, trying to order the issue with Firefox browser. But it worked for me, using Chrome browser, if it can help.

Thanks, Trotter, that is very helpful. I'm currently trying to take a high-res scan of a 1980s A&U DJ (plucked from my shelf) and modify it back into being a reasonable representation of a 1st Ed wrapper. I figure it forces me to improve my graphic skills (which are limited). I'm just moving the main title around and resizing bits and bobs at the moment. I have a lowish res scan of a 1st which I have in a layer underneath to help me get things in the right place and I have "The Art of the Hobbit" to hand as well to snag a couple of bits and bobs from.

Amazing how essentially the same picture changed over the years.

(you are probably wondering why I don't just scan an old wrapper, and the answer is simple - I don't have any early Hobbits! My first Hardback copy came to me new in 1985 and I never purchased any earlier ones (a bit of a mistake with the benefit of hindsight!).

These are scans of my 4th impression dust-wrapper.

On my Windows computer, I have a font called Perpetua, this seems to be a better than Times New Roman.

I have had a few members state that they are having issues with the on-line ordering system, I have passed these issues onto the editor for them to look at.

I've been trying to order a copy through the site, but despite 10 or so tries, I can't get it to accept my order. After I enter my credit card info and hit the button to process the order, it returns to the cart view, and doesn't actually place the order (so far as I can tell).

Had anyone else in the US successfully placed an order?

Thanks,

Carl

(FWIW, using the Safari browser on my Mac)
