Just a quick update - the Easton Press Hobbit rune error was fixed in late 2008, and the trilogy was fixed in 2009. Answer still pending on when the Silmarillion was fixed.

Looking for a 1973 TT (7th imp.) with the purple cover i.e. the first impression(s) to have this new cover, back in the 70's (--after the grey jackets, that were intoduced with the 2nd edition.)

TolkienBooks

Doesn't have to be F or anything; just to complete an o/w VG/VG set. Anyone have one knocking around?

Hello to all -

Well summer is over and I'm back in a calendar mood as the 2012 calendars are coming out. So I updated the Calendar of the Month feature at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

This month's featured calendar is one of a set of rare ones (not many created and extraordinarily hard to find.) Hope everyone's fall is going well!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Nice detective work, indeed. I don't look in for two days and this thread has exploded into life. Having nothing to add, and only having EP's The Silmarillion (why would I buy anything else! ) --all I will say is: their Silmarillion appears to have all the textual errors from the first impression present; presumably because they used this text (photographically) for their edition. Think they might want to update that too...

Now that I actually read the description (of the auction I flagged), it makes even less sense!

It's claiming it's the "inbetween edition" (presumably referring to the use of the Howe jackets, by HC, on old GA&U stock) --but talks about a full line number being present! GA&U didn't use line numbers, so if one is present, it clearly ain't a GA&U book. And, the jackets went on the old 2nd impressions left over, not (to my knowledge) any first impressions. So, in conclusion, a total muddle of an auction!
