I have no connection with the seller and would buy it myself but already have a set.

I think all the references that I can see in the papers are OCR (Optical Character Recognition) errors from the scanning. The computer is checking a dictionary for words which must include Hobbit and correcting to that.

Jeremy, is that in the Denham Tracts, or something even earlier?

One thing I can mention is that "hobbit" goes back to the 1860s, so Middle-earth Enterprises is going to have a hard claim that they own the trademark for that word.

They claim they are digitizing British newspapers (hundreds) going back to the 1700s. In my first amateur pass at it, I did not find any Tolkien gems, but I am guessing there are some in there. Have some fun, and tell us what you find!
