The Second Printing has a numberline towards the bottom of the Copyright Page as follows "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2".

The title page should look like this with only one date mentioned on the Published by line. Second impressions would have additional text on the page, referring to the later printing.

or if they'd normally reset the text between impressions (my impression was that they're only likely to do that between different editions)...i.e. still not entirely sure if there might be "corrected" hardcover copies out there. Probably not, though.


If this mistake has been spotted after the first impression then it is entirely likely that it would have been have been changed.

If you do not already own a copy then you really need to get J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography by Wayne G. Hammond and Douglas A. Anderson, for an insight into how Tolkien's books changed by impression

Thanks for the quick replies! :) I guess they caught it in time for the first paperback edition, then.

Although I'm not even sure if my (HarperCollins hardcover) first edition is first or second impression (how do you tell?), or if they'd normally reset the text between impressions (my impression was that they're only likely to do that between different editions)...i.e. still not entirely sure if there might be "corrected" hardcover copies out there. Probably not, though.

Cheers,

Dior is in Australia and reports that the only online retailer that currently has it is at

http://www.booktopia.com.au/pocket-hobbit/prod9780007440849.html

It looks like they do not have it in stock yet, and shipping is high for the first book (but drops drastically after that, so order more than one. )

Does anyone happen to have both Rehabilitations and Other Essays and Selected Literary Essays? Both appear to contain the essay "The Alliterative Metre", and I wonder if the essays are identical in both books.

(Was thinking of buying Rehabilitations and Other Essays just to check if it quotes from a Tolkien letter, but the cheapest copy goes for £200.00 at Amazon.co.uk!)
