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.

This one is even more hilarious than yesterday's signature.

I love the quote "i have no idea who the portrait is of or whether it is genuine or original".

How many people in the world have not heard of J.R.R. Tolkien They do not know who the portrait is of, yet the Ebay listing is '"JRR Tolkien Pencil Portrait" Signed'. How did they come up with the listing title if they did not know who the portrait is of?

This must be in the top 10 of the worst forgeries I have ever seen, terrible!!! It is a very nice sketch that is ruined by a fake signature.
