This is an interesting book, a 1st printing with commentary from the original buyer.

eBay Item #221519251942

The original buyer in 1962, stated that "This edition, alas, is spoiled by inappropriate illustrations".

I don't agree with these sentiments, but it is interesting that Pauline Baynes, was still being questioned as an illustrator in 1962.

Two questions

Does anyone know if this impression has any adverts in the back, if so are they same as these, from the second impression?

Is the list of GA&U offices the same as the second impression? (This, for perfectly understandable reasons, appears to the last time that the Leipzig address is listed as a GA&U office)

Thanks in advance.

Those are just slipcases for the existing collections though, aren't they? No news on when a new collection including the latest books may hit the streets?


Sorry, but no news at the present.

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.
