Thanks for that Deagol. Much Appreciated. That seems to confirm my suspicions that it probably does not exist.

I have a 17th Impression and the entire printing history of the Hardback Edition is printed up to "Third Edition (Sixteenth Impression) 1966".

So it would kinda make sense that the "Seventeenth Impression" could be the first printing of this 1966 Paperback Edition.

Anyone have any differing thoughts?

Never seen one despite many years of searching. I did read in the A&U correspondence archive that they had a lot of trouble with the binding, so perhaps the number that made it out of the bindery was much less than the 20,000 copies printed.

Alternative theory- I don't have my notes on the correspondence to hand, but I wonder if there was an error in the impression numbering similar to the hardback edition, and the 16th Impression doesn't actually exist?

I'm sure I'm not the only one to ask him that very question (still waiting for a reply)!

Are you sure it actually sold or did he decide just to hang on to it?
