Thanks Jeremy,

Here are the bottom corners:

As you can see, what I assume to be the price (from other photos I've found online) has been blacked out with a marker, but you can just make out the "49" at the end of it.

There is a piece missing on the left side, as well as a few tears. The largest of which is on the left side about 1/4 of the way up. It's about 1.5". The couple others are less than half an inch. I'll get more detailed photos before I make this available.

I could have come rolled originally, but I remember it being folded when I got it as a kid. The folding doesn't seem to be very exact -- i.e. it doesn't fold exactly square. It seems like if it was being folded "professionally" it would have been done better, but perhaps the original folding was better and it has just been badly refolded since then? The blacked out price might also be indicative of a fan club mailing though -- hiding the price for people who received it as part of their membership?

This isn't the only seller who has done this, but it is frustrating!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310215451705

Title of auction is "Two Towers 50th J.R.R. TOLKIEN & AUTOGRAPHED 2 BOOK LOT"

In the description, you see that they are selling a very common paperback from Tolkien (and they cannot even seem to find a picture of the edition that they have), and then they attach that to signed self-published books written themselves.

At least they have the courtesy to include the first five chapters in the auction, so I know just how much I want to avoid their book(s) without having to spend any money.

"There is also a small mention/reference to the Hobbit in the 1938 July-August Issue on Page 232."

Thanks, Remy - I'd missed that reference. 'Real literature' as Prof. Pedersen said.

Morgan,

My issue is the May - June, 1938 one; the picture is not of my issue. But the cover is identical, except for the date.

Thanks all for your comments.

We also have this, as part of a substantial run of the journal (1928-1975) we bought from a local public library that no longer had any interest in back issues.
