A few lines telling us what you've been up to would be handy.
I stop by quite regularly to look in on the forum, but it is easy to miss new bits in the guide or the BoM.
I haven't tried playing with notification settings for quite a while - last time I tried things weren't working very well...

The 14th Impression was printed in the UK and has the endpaper maps printed in black and red.

The 15th Impresion was printed in the US and has the endpaper maps in black only. The text is pretty much identical because it was a photographic reproduction of the 14th Impression. There is a differnce on the last page of text though - see below.

There is a good article on American Hobbits at Wikipedia:

Early American editions of The Hobbit

Greetings, collectors!
I have found an early U.S. second edition copy of The Hobbit which conforms to 14th printings in all respects except that there is no frontispiece. It is still entirely likely that it is a 14th, but from what I understand, a 15th would have no frontispiece while 14ths reportedly do have one. If someone could give me an outline of any differences between the two impressions, just so I can ascertain for certain exactly what I've got here, I'd very much appreciate it!
If you have my email, please tag me... and/or respond here, or fill out the contact form on my website - Thank'ee.
