Got this question via email. I am waiting for an answer from HC, but in the meantime, have any of you seen any first impressions?

I have visited several bookshops to try to buy the Pocket 75 anniversary edition all the copies I have seen do not have a full print line but just the number 2. Is there a "First" Edition and is this numbered 1?

Sorry...

There is another copy, claiming "1968" as the publication date --this is obviously in error, but it may still be a 1st impression.

1st edition LORD OF THE RINGS 1968 (1ST 3 Books in one

It's not really in the same condition tho'...

If you're referring to the DJ --then, yes, it's a standard DJ. If you mean the boards themselves --again, yes, standard paper covered boards. However the point is, if you'd seen a Clowes 1st impression with paper covered boards --one would have assumed it had the Ulmo error corrected i.e. it was the 2nd Clowes state (or the "intermediate", between the 1st state & the Clowes Book Club edition --whatever you want to call it). It is not (the 2nd state). It has both errors present. More unconventionally it has a priced jacket, casting doubt on the cast iron assumption that Clowes = "export". It's more complicated than that. Not hugely so, but not so clear cut.

It was you?! *shakes his fist*

Since most of the sellers only put UK in their auctions, I always have to ask them, if they would send it to Austria and while it take some time to answer me, others already have bought it.

But I´m happy that it was a forum member this time.
