Thanks for the assistance everyone!

I've put all three volumes up for auction on eBay, you can see them here:

Beren,

Do you have any news on the HarperCollins History of The Hobbit boxed edition? David Brawn mentioned it at the online launch party I think. If I remember correctly it will include The Hobbit in a new jacket design as well. Any idea when it will be published?

I really want to read John Rateliff's books, but would prefer to buy just the set, rather than pay for the separate books now, and then the set later.

Thanks for that. I am working on a Hobbit update for TolkienBooks.net and just wondered if my 1965 copy was misbound or if A&U had left the illustration out on purpose. I have some earlier copies but not the 1963 impresion. It looks like they only omitted it from the last impression of the Second Edition.

The 1961 and 1963 have The Hill, but the 1965 does not... i can check some earlier editions, but at first glance they all have the Hill.

Will see if I have the US copies here somewhere... hopefully i find the box they are in soon.

Does anybody have an Allen and Unwin copy of The Hobbit printed in 1961, 1963, or 1965?

I would be interested to know if it has the colour frontispiece of The Hill opposite the title page.

Details on 1961 or 1963 (12th-14th Impression) Houghton Mifflin copies would also be appreciated (they were printed with the A&U copies).
