Is it a first or second impression, the page left of the Contents page will state First published in 1986 only (no reprints mentioned) if it is a first impression?

You can laugh at this seller on Abebooks as well (in fact it is far to easy to find sellers on Abe to laugh at)

How on earth could you arrive at the price for these Various items? The seller does not even bother to list the titles of the books that he'd like £2150 for.

Looking at the video, I think the 1946 Hobbit has an original Dust Jacket (you get to see the damaged spine at one point), but the Foyle's Hobbit I don't think is original. I have never seen a copy of this book with that good an original dust-jacket.

Peter, if you are reading these posts then please join the community, you have an excellent collection that a lot of members would love to be able to own themselves.

I, as well as some other members, have a profile on tolkienlibrary.com, but I don't have Twitter, Facebook and even a spot on Australian TV about my collection and I would never state some of the claims that Peter Kenny has, not below but to the press

Interview: Tolkien and Wales - Dr Carl Phelpstead




Caleb Woodbridge interviews Dr Carl Phelpstead, author of 'Tolkien and Wales: Language, Literature and Identity', recently published by the University of Wales Press. Tolkien once wrote: 'I love Wales - and especially the Welsh language'. In this episode, we discuss with Dr Phelpstead how Welsh influenced Tolkien's ideas about language and his fiction, especially The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. We also discuss Tolkien's place in the university today, and what the future might hold for the academic study of Tolkien. Dr Phelpstead is a Reader in English Literature at Cardiff University. His areas of research include Old Norse and Medieval English literature. Dr Phelpstead has published widely on Norse sagas and other medieval literature and has contributed to The J.R.R. Tolkien Encyclopaedia and Tolkien Studies. Length: 20 minutes
