I just saw it today, in the flesh, in Waterstones (UK). Alas, it was a not a first impression, as predicted; if the distinction matters much in this case.

I agree Deagol, the fold-outs are quite delicate. Also, the pages preceding the fold-outs, at the fore-edge, are marginally folded/bent (or are going to become so), as they have nothing to support them; as the fold-outs themselves do not run to the same breadth. That aside (which is only an observation), it's a lovely book; & HarperCollins really kept the price down, at £15.54. I'm carefully perusing it as we speak...

The first printing of the Pocket Hobbit was also distributed to Canada. We took a chance and ordered a copy from amazon.ca. This arrived this morning and happily has the "1" on the copyright page. It's a small hardcover in a dust-jacket and an extra paper band partly advertising The Art of The Hobbit.

I also got today my slipcased edition of the AotH.
It really is a beautiful book.

Many thanks to Wayne and Christina!

Yes AotH is a beautiful book.
My only gripe is the fold out pages. The fold out part is almost the same length as the fixed part of the page making them difficult to open and almost as difficult to turn back in properly. If you aren't careful you could easily damage the folded edge. I thought at first that the page edges hadn't been cut.
Still a wonderful book though.
