Pointed out to me by Beren (via twitter) - Amazon.co.uk now has the release date listed as June 10, 2010. Amazon.com does not confirm this, so this doesn't bear much weight - probably just means the publisher said "next year some time" in one of their catalog listings.

Thanks all, I just couldn't find what I was looking for in Hammond's biblio - need to get my glasses checked I guess. Also thanks for the other data points on your copies. Much appreciated!

The Hammond & Anderson Bibliography implies (p. 40) that the misprint 'Ratelves' was introduced with the 'third edition' (A&U) of 1966, presumably with its first printing, which was identified as 'sixteenth printing' overall (p. 39). It also states the error was continued in the "new 'eighth impression'" of 1974, which was reset (p. 58).

My tenth Impression 1975 Hobbit (UK) still has the "ratelves" misprint so it looks as if the 1978 is the first with the correction.
