This may be first time that Amazon have appeared in this illustrious thread, but what is going on here?

I notice that a paperback version of Jemima Caitlin's illustrated Hobbit is coming out in September 2017, but have no idea why Amazon are calling it "The Colour Illustrated Hobbit"

If the price paid to the printers was the same, then £2.9s.0d would have been 1600 copies overprinted by the binders.

If I read Deagol's notes correctly, then these would be 8th impression dust-jackets, so 1600 out of 3150 is possibly a good guess, nearly 50%.

Thanks a lot Deagol for your excellent research into this

I have checked back on my notes used to compile the Hobbit article.
The 2000 jackets mentioned were Houghton Mifflin not Allen & Unwin - I have amended the wording to clarify.
The 8th impression A&U jackets were delivered to the binder at the same time that the last 1000 copies of the 7th impression were being bound, so it would appear they were used instead of the correct 7th impression jackets. They were supposed to be price-clipped and overprinted with a new price of 12s.6d.


Do you have any idea how many 7th impression jackets were price-clipped and had 12s.6d net overprinted and how many 8th impression jackets were price-clipped and had 12s.6d net overprinted?
