This isn't the only seller who has done this, but it is frustrating!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310215451705

Title of auction is "Two Towers 50th J.R.R. TOLKIEN & AUTOGRAPHED 2 BOOK LOT"

In the description, you see that they are selling a very common paperback from Tolkien (and they cannot even seem to find a picture of the edition that they have), and then they attach that to signed self-published books written themselves.

At least they have the courtesy to include the first five chapters in the auction, so I know just how much I want to avoid their book(s) without having to spend any money.

"There is also a small mention/reference to the Hobbit in the 1938 July-August Issue on Page 232."

Thanks, Remy - I'd missed that reference. 'Real literature' as Prof. Pedersen said.

Morgan,

My issue is the May - June, 1938 one; the picture is not of my issue. But the cover is identical, except for the date.

Thanks all for your comments.

We also have this, as part of a substantial run of the journal (1928-1975) we bought from a local public library that no longer had any interest in back issues.

There is also a small mention/reference to the Hobbit in the 1938 July-August Issue on Page 232.

And in the 1938 November/December Issue, there is a few lines (Hobbit publication notice and price) on Page 365.
