Thanks for the quick replies! :) I guess they caught it in time for the first paperback edition, then.

Although I'm not even sure if my (HarperCollins hardcover) first edition is first or second impression (how do you tell?), or if they'd normally reset the text between impressions (my impression was that they're only likely to do that between different editions)...i.e. still not entirely sure if there might be "corrected" hardcover copies out there. Probably not, though.

Cheers,

felagund

Dior is in Australia and reports that the only online retailer that currently has it is at

http://www.booktopia.com.au/pocket-hobbit/prod9780007440849.html

It looks like they do not have it in stock yet, and shipping is high for the first book (but drops drastically after that, so order more than one. )

Does anyone happen to have both Rehabilitations and Other Essays and Selected Literary Essays? Both appear to contain the essay "The Alliterative Metre", and I wonder if the essays are identical in both books.

(Was thinking of buying Rehabilitations and Other Essays just to check if it quotes from a Tolkien letter, but the cheapest copy goes for £200.00 at Amazon.co.uk!)

My 1st impression of the paperback (Harper Collins 1993) has me.

What do mean Trotter --that your copy is as non-sensical as just described (i.e. reads the same as my copy), or that it has some other sequence?
