After many years of selling books on various online venues, I have finally started my own independent online bookstore. Telperion Books is my new webstore, where you will find many deluxe, rare, and out of print Tolkien editions. For the remainder of this year, forum members will receive 10% off all purchases using the coupon code TCG10OFF. Thanks for taking a moment to read this, and I hope you will get a chance to visit my site.

Bad news for anyone hoping to get a copy of the magazine

"The Harper Insider was produced for Waterstones in September and so they have probably all been given away by now"

Hi Stu,

We have the same problem here in Melbourne with most of the book shops closing down.

The Pocket Hobbit came in on Monday. The Artof the Hobbit, A Tolkien Tapestry and the new addition of Mr Bliss still haven't come in yet.

i now order most of the new books being released via the Book Depository now, and these tend to arrive before the books end up in stock here in Australia.

Has anyone seen this for sale in Australia, yet? We don't have that many proper bookshops left in Brisbane, and even the better ones don't tend to stock hardbacks...

Edit: I just wandered down to the local bookshop and they just got it in since the weekend. It is definitely a lot different than the second printing, so the hardcore collectors will no doubt want both.

Was looking at / examining the books briefly today and they are by no means identical.

The First Printing is printed on a much lower quality (thin and dull) paper. The second printing is of a much better quality - bright white and heavier paper.

The result is that the Second Printing is about 50% thicker than the First.

I also noticed that the gilt title on the spine of the second printing reads "The Hobbit" over 2 lines whereas the First Printing just reads "Hobbit".
