I won't disclose the price, as that isn't really any of my business, but Orcraider confirmed it was sold --and paid. I don't have any reason to suspect otherwise. Of course, deals fall through --but in this case the money has, metaphorically, changed hands. And, I may be mistaken, but I'm sure he would have said if he had decided to simply hold onto it.

It's great to have confirmation that copies are out there. The hunt goes on!

Great! Nice one.

Glad to know that I am not searching for something that does not exist.

The number of these that actually exist must be considerably smaller than 20,000 as Deagol suggested.

Thanks Garm! The search goes on...........

re: the First Printing (16th Impression Stated) of the 1966 Paperback Edition of the Hobbit published by Unwin Books

It most certainly does exist - I have one here in my hand. I also have a fifteenth impression hardback (1965) and a hardback sixteenth impression (1966), and a Longman's edition.

My Unwin Books paperback is in Very Good condition; very clean white pages; unfaded cover illustration, with '8s 6d' on the front cover. A lovely copy, esp. considering the age - its only flaw being a slight crease on the upper cover.

The copyright page lists the entire history of TH, from 1937 onwards. This list concludes:

'Fifteenth impression 1965
Third edition (sixteenth impression) 1966'

Then, after the paragraph abot the Berne Convention, it reads:

'This edition c George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1966.'

Thanks for that Deagol. Much Appreciated. That seems to confirm my suspicions that it probably does not exist.

I have a 17th Impression and the entire printing history of the Hardback Edition is printed up to "Third Edition (Sixteenth Impression) 1966".

So it would kinda make sense that the "Seventeenth Impression" could be the first printing of this 1966 Paperback Edition.

Anyone have any differing thoughts?
