Can't find my original post on this, but this appears to be the variant edition that I own, slipcase is a different size, and the slipcase has some differences from the more common edition, though all editions are quite rare in a slipcase.

New book J.R.R. Tolkien the esperantist Before the arrival of Bilbo Baggins

http://www.cafagnaeditore.it/prodotto ... arrival-of-bilbo-baggins/

The book contains studies by Arden R. Smith, Patrick H. Wynne and Oronzo Cilli which examine the connection which existed between J.R.R. Tolkien, and the planned language Esperanto, created by L.L. Zamenhof.


Is this a reprinting, according to Tolkieniano's site, this was published in December 2015

I got a near-fine unread 1966 16th impression Hobbit on Friday, so my Third Edition collection is now complete.

Slow progress, mind, Hobbit collecting, as I'm only really interested in them being in decent near-new condition. Second edition progressing even slower (one book a year if I am lucky).

I expect to catch up with Trotter by 2029.


In my humble Hobbit collection, I now have all the 4th edition impressions, so have at least the first 35 impressions of the UK hardback, would have to properly check on impression numbers, but I think it is up to the 40th impression and I have now stopped looking for later impressions, you have to stop somewhere

All have decent justjackets, except the 1st and 2nd impressions, which on eBay would be described as Acceptable, but in the real world are Not at all Good or Very Poor
