The whole episode is on Youtube so at the moment anyone can see it (until it gets pulled by the BBC), bit laggy though.

Thanks again everybody...

So I've learned that my copy of SD is first impression--title page looks exactly like the one Trotter uploaded (thanks for taking the time!), that is without the number line remy also describes.

Well then, anybody own a second impression (UK hardcover) copy who can enlighten us as to whether "be" was indeed changed to "me"?

BTW, would one actually find this kind of very detailed information in the Hammond/Anderson Bibliography, I mean do they really record every single misprint or other error of any kind that was ever noted and subsequently corrected (or not, as may be)?? For example, would it answer this specific question?

I've been thinking of buying the Descriptive Bibliography before (a standard work I know), but it's a little bit on the pricey side if you're not quite the serious collector...anybody have a copy they wanna sell at a low price? ;) Juuust kidding.

Cheers,

felagund

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
