Hi all,

Many thanks to Urulókë for the tea! It arrived in a very moist England last week and Mrs Burns and I have been enjoying it very much.

I first tried the "Gandalf the Gray" (always throws me that they've chosen to spell grey with an 'a' instead of an 'e') tea. Not having read much on what ingredients went into the teas, it seemed obvious to me that it would be an Earl Grey (Mr Burns' favourite) equivalent.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was chamomile and red bush and actually reminded me very much of a Twining's Green Tea with Chamomile I'd had years ago. Not as green-tasting, of course...in fact better tasting in that regard!

The mint is also very refreshing in the morning or at the end of a tough day in th'office!

We've not tried the breakfast tea yet, but will hopefully get on here to tell you about it when I do.

Action shot! (haha)

Thanks again!

PS - That's not me in the pic...it's a coworker. And he doesn't know I sneakily snapped his pic on my iPhone. Shh!

Edit: Embedded for convenience.

remy is quite correct, there were three impressions of the Fowler Hobbit book, details below.

Indeed, there is a third impression from 1976.

With regards to The Hobbit with an Introduction by R.S. Fowler. I believe there were 3 printings (1972, 1974 and 1976).

I certainly have the 1972 and 1974 Printings and I will check later, but from memory, I think I have a copy printed in 1976 also.

The book is cloth bound so there will have been a dustjacket, as you say, Trotter. A pity that I can't seem to find a picture of it...
I wonder why the book is so scarce..
Also I can't find out much more about RS Fowler than the fact that he wrote a handful of English school books (also with AJB Dick) and had some interest in Tolkien.

The edition you mention, garm, seems to be quite scarce also, is it? I can also find just a handful of this edition. Has there been only one printing with Fowler's introduction perhaps?
