Edit: I wonder if it was nothing more than to be more cohesive with the upcoming LOTR Dustjackets, given the 6th was the first to mention LOTR in preparation?


That is the reason why I think they changed it, to match the Lord of the Rings Dust-jackets.

Lets have some theories, why was Tolkien's Dust-Jacket changed in the 1954 printing of the The Hobbit, UK George Allen & Unwin, to have a type-written George Allen and Unwin on the spine?

I am a huge fan of Tolkien's hand-written version on the first five UK hardback impressions :) but does anyone know why it was changed?

If not then am very open to why you think they changed it and do you think the typed version is an improvement?

The fifth Impression should have a hand written George Allen & Unwin as on my avatar.

Ok, I agree I am mad, but am intrigued by the phrase "as mad as a lorry", are some lorries mad and I would love to know where this phrase came from?
