I don't think they are lonely, though my Hobbits are by comparison

If anyone has one of these and it still has the original printed price on the dust jacket, or is price-clipped but has an A&U sticker, could you tell me the original price?

Thanks in advance

I saw that one. Is it even possible to determine which edition that came from?


Not really, as the main clues would be on the flaps which have been cut off.

You can tell that it was a dust-jacket from a 2nd edition 1954 or later impression, from the George Allen & Unwin on the spine being typed and not hand-written, and it was no later than the last printing of the 3rd edition in 1975, as the size of the word Tolkien and Hobbit on the spine are smaller from 1978.

Beren has updated my profile on his site, mainly just some newer pictures of the book shelves
