I am sure that David Miller (www.tolkienbookshelf.com) will not mind me sharing this with everyone, but he has recently been producing two slipcases for the current UK deluxe editions, and you can inquire with him on his website as to cost and when they may be available for purchase.

"Today we celebrate a hundred years of Allen & Unwin – a whole century of publishing “Books that matter”!

On the 4th of August 1914, the same day that England declared war on Germany, Stanley Unwin opened up shop as George Allen & Unwin on Museum Street in London, and an incredible history of publishing was born
."

I will check, it looks like A* means that it is an earlier signature mark than A (though A by itself does not appear to exist, thanks Stu), I will check my copies to see if this is the case.

Thanks for all your help on this.

On the contents page of the GA&U Hobbit, an A* appears at the bottom.

This was only in the 10th(1958) to the 15th(1965) impressions and was dropped for the 3rd edition in 1966.

Any guesses at what it might represent?
