I added a bunch of images of the Philippine Tolkien Society's buttons.

They also sent me scans of their fanzine, Quento which has now been added to the Guide database.

Thanks, Ian!

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 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?

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.

That COH / Hobbit combo certainly does look to be a fake. One thing to keep in mind - I know of zero instances that the bookplates were put into books other than The Children of Hurin.

There are US trade editions with bookplates, and British trade editions and a handful of British Deluxe editions. There were no loose bookplates that I know of.

If you look at that dodgy auction image, even the helm emblem looks like it was scanned in at very low resolution - the lines are very fat and smudged compared with the fine thin lines in the original bookplate:
