Urulöké,

Did they review the book as well?

Love the illustration, and it does look like the illustrator had read the book, which for the US release was about 1 month earlier, but had a very vivid imagination on what Goblins/Orcs/Cave Trolls looked like :)

Interesting article in the Oxford Mail about Tolkien's former house.

I cannot remember seeing this photo of Tolkien in the gallery before.

Trotter, can I ask which impression the 1974 copy you posted is please? I assume 14th?


Thanks so the copy in the picture that I asked about is the same as yours, 11th Impression, mine is the 14th.

This copy is from 1974, 14th Impression.

There are more with different spines and front-covers, if you have a different one then please post, please post spine and front-cover.

I have the 12th impression, it matches the price of the third one down, but has the lettering with the black outline like the second one down in the pic above. So I agree the third one down is likely the 11th impression in the TolkienBooks link you think it is.


I have the same copy as you

What is the best way to try and find the changes, with pictures, of this edition?

If you have a copy, then please post an image of the spine and the frontcover? So that we can get a definitive list of them, duplicate posts of the same cover and spine will probably be deleted, sorry.
