Believe that this is probably the last of the pocket books, though I suppose Leaf by Niggle, Mr Bliss, Father Christmas Letters are also candidates as well for this book format.

Smith of Wootton Major

Published on 26th February 2015.


I received the book today and it looks to be very similar to the 2005 hardback.

but with one extra section, which is an additional gallery showing Pauline Baynes redrawn illustrations that appeared in Poems & Stories

One of The Two Towers in the pictures looks to be the third impression, it does not have 1954 on the title page

I think you have may have a point about the printers for the second impression, my copy is Jarrold and not K&W, but just because it was printed by one printer does not mean that it was bound by them, and the article refers to binders.

Your points about the ROTK are answered by Deagol on this page http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/1st-rotk.php

"This was not the case - all later impressions included the damaged text, although the signature mark was removed after the second impression."

Yes it has, another 420 copies were reprinted, I expect it to be reprinted as it goes out of print and there are still demands for the book.

copy numbers from correspondence with HC.
