Now that would have been a good deal. Are you sending back?


No, Laurel, I am not sending them back. They came from the UK and I am in the US. The way the postal system has been operating due to US Homeland Security over the last six months or so, everything I have purchased from the UK has taken a minimum of 30 days to arrive (even airmail packages). As I said, the books themselves are in fantastic condition, and I think well worth the money.

Great rewards of bargain hunting always come with inherent risks. All part of the fun!

P.S. Anyone looking for a nice set of laminated dust jackets?

This is the problem with ebay - you are relying on sellers description and sometimes forget to ask the obvious. I have just brought two items - both were sent but itturned out someone elses photo was used ! Pleasingly seller refunded in full on one immediately and waiting ebay judgement on other one today.
Keep looking for those bargains

I have a 1942 edition (which has the same acknowledgement to Tolkien quoted by Beren) and states

First Published January 1938
Reprinted February 1938, April 1938
1942

That suggests (as Beren says) that 1944 would be at least a 5th printing.

In my 1938 edition from The Claredon Press is written:
"[...] Mr. E. A. Barber and Mr. D. L. Page have given valuable help in the Notes; Professor J. R. R. Tolkien and Mr. W. H. Shewring in the second part of the Introduction; [...]"
I don't know of an earlier edition, but I know there exists a blue version from the same year that prints 2nd ed., the 1944 edition was already the 5th printing (if I'm correct).
