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).

Not really a collector profile, but there's a new interview with Beren out there, in which our hero talks about his personal collection and other ephemera.

I fixed the posts count for now, but we may lose them again until I can patch a bug that is triggered by a spammer in the news comments section. It's an easy patch to get the counts back, but I want to take my time on core changes so we don't lose anything key on the site.

I don't think it is the same people, after all the seller with the previous adverts was actually at Waterstones, but they are guilty of selling the scanned image on Ebay and starting what will be a huge problem in fake bookplates. I have given up reporting these to Ebay, as they don't care if they are fakes as long as they get their money for selling the item.

Rowns, what has happened to the number of posts they all went back to zero?

Hmm, this ad looks like it was written by the same seller who had the COH with the Alan Lee and Ted Nasmith illustrations (all lower-case, "piccadilli," etc). It is very suspicous.
