The lack of a printed price does seem odd.
It is only a guess but A&U may have printed some unpriced jackets after the wrong copies were sent to the U.S.
At the moment I have 3rd and 8th Impression copies but nothing inbetween, so it is hard to check.
Does anybody else have copies of FG from the mid-1960s? It would interesting to know what the dj on the 1966 Impression looks like.

In the hardback British editions all the frontispieces are in colour with the exception of that in Volume 1.

The northern and southern portions of the first Silmarillion map in Volume 4 are also in colour (in the paperback edition too).

How many of the illustrations in HoME are in color? This one, and maybe one other I saw online somewhere, are the only ones I've seen that are not in b&w.

Deagol, i was looking through your reply and looking at the other FGoH dust jackets in my collection, and from what i can gather all the dj should have a price in dollars, shillings, or pounds. is there any explanation for this dj not having a printed price at all? thanks again for your time, i appreciate it very much.
