I'm sure a lot of you have noticed the 2nd UK Impression of the Hobbit that is listed on ebay. Also some of you may have noticed that some or most of the photo's were taken by myself some years ago. The link to the auction is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280724837525? ... _trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The reason I'm posting this notice, the seller indicates the book is in the original cloth with repairs to the spine tips. Then the photo's of mine, show that book, but not the exterior. The photo's that have been added after my request show a fully rebound copy, which also appears to have been one that I had rebound, by the small JRRT monogram on the spine versus the runes. I just wanted to point out that something is very wrong on this auction. It may be legit, but something is a bit hinky. The seller has not answered my questions about whether it is rebound or not, says to read the description (mine) and then goes and posts photo's of the fully rebound copy. Just wanted to warn anyone who might be considering bidding on this auction. Photo's of the original 'repaired' cover are attached.

It was a one-off printing I think, all the copies I've seen including mine are first printings.

Can anyone tell me if this book was reprinted. If so, how many reprints and what dates.

Thanks
Dior

I'm happy with both, though I'm used to them at the bottom of the page

UPDATE: whoops! the permissions were set wrong, so I could see them but not anyone else! Good catch.

Let me know if you prefer the new location (top of page on right) with slightly less metadata, or the old location (more info, but buried way down under all the news stories).

UPDATE 2: and since there is no harm in it, now in both locations.
