I've added a page to the Guide for the new book released last month, Quest for Middle-earth by Dirk Vander Ploeg. I also got permission from Jason Fisher to use his review of the book, which is included in the Guide page.

Also, I added Jason's blog to the Tolkien Online section of the Guide. In his words, "I've recently started my own blog. I talk about J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S Lewis, the Inklings; J.K. Rowling, Alan Garner, and others, and fantasy literature in general; language, linguistics, philology, and so forth -- plus occasional other things."

His blog can be found here: Lingwë.

Thanks, Jason!

I have a 15th Impression 1965.
The printers made a mess when they set up the type for the printing history on the Third Edition 1966:

What should have read as:

Fifteenth Impression 1965
Third Edition (Sixteenth Impression) 1966


was actually set down as:

Third Edition (Fifteenth Impression) 1966
Sixteenth Impression 1966


This error was never corrected.

The Third Edition includes four colour plates rather than one, and remained the same up to 1974 when they reset the text and added another colour plate.

I ran across this ebay auction with clear pictures that the seventeenth impression (1967) also has the Hill illustration. Outside the range you were looking for, but seemed like it might be useful anyways.

I don't have my Bibliography or Annotated Hobbit in front of me - the 17th impression shows the 15th impression (3rd edition) was published in 1966. Which year is correct?

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.
