I just ordered this from the_book_depository (through Amazon.co.uk) - thanks for sharing the news, Urulókë!

I'll be willing to offer some impressions about the book once it arrives, if anyone's interested.

IT's not a 7th, but this 9th impression is only £0.01 on eBay...

One side note that I am still working on - can you guys with EP Hobbits help out?

Copies have been seen with the endpapers in silk (as mentioned in Hammond A3l, p. 48) and paper with "Pegasus design". Can we confirm copies with both states? I will try to find out which came first and when the change was made, but for stuff this old EP doesn't always have reliable records.

I am not doubting Wayne and Douglas, but the Easton Press Hobbit gets so little coverage in the Bibliography (seven lines of text, no full entry) that it seems possible that without being aware, they had a later state book.

Also, has anyone seen copies with additional printing information (date or otherwise) to mark a reprint? I never have, but I haven't handled all that many copies. According to EP they don't do this but I have an eBay seller saying they have seen it. Without a confirmed copy with additional info, obviously I will take EPs word...

Just a quick update - the Easton Press Hobbit rune error was fixed in late 2008, and the trilogy was fixed in 2009. Answer still pending on when the Silmarillion was fixed.

Looking for a 1973 TT (7th imp.) with the purple cover i.e. the first impression(s) to have this new cover, back in the 70's (--after the grey jackets, that were intoduced with the 2nd edition.)

TolkienBooks

Doesn't have to be F or anything; just to complete an o/w VG/VG set. Anyone have one knocking around?
