The title page should look like this with only one date mentioned on the Published by line. Second impressions would have additional text on the page, referring to the later printing.

or if they'd normally reset the text between impressions (my impression was that they're only likely to do that between different editions)...i.e. still not entirely sure if there might be "corrected" hardcover copies out there. Probably not, though.


If this mistake has been spotted after the first impression then it is entirely likely that it would have been have been changed.

If you do not already own a copy then you really need to get J.R.R. Tolkien - A Descriptive Bibliography by Wayne G. Hammond and Douglas A. Anderson, for an insight into how Tolkien's books changed by impression

I'm glad I don't collect US editions as I can not find any sensible printing dates on my copy of this US paperback

My paperback copy from 1993 has me instead of be, but I don't have any earlier editions to check (of which there are not many, 2 hardbacks and 5 paperbacks) , apart from the 1st printing which has be.
