The first thing is to check the name of the publisher - the 1st printing, and most of the reprints are by Oxford University Press. Then see whether there's a later date on the reverse of the title page. (my 1971 reprint lists reprints in 1958, 1960, 1963)

Check the size of the booklet - the first printing is roughly 25cm by 16cm. (10X6.5 in) I think later printings are smaller?

Hi all. I think I might have a first printing of this as it more or less matches the copy seen here:
http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/collect ... /object21/description.htm


Just wondering if anyone knows a sure way of telling if my copy is a true original or a reprint???

Cheers.

Miles better. The only fault so far is it encourages more spending!

The new version of www.tolkien.co.uk is now live, first impressions are that it is a big improvement on the old site.

They now seem to be selling all the UK books with international shipping, are doing a 3 for 2 deal even on Super Deluxe copies, and it is the only place to buy the print on demand books (History of Middle Earth hardbacks).

Hi Trotter

No, there's nothing on the spine.
