It is also on tolkienbooks.net, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/lotr-print-runs.php.

I also wonder if 'shadow' instead of 'darkness' was a mistake, as in The History of Middle-Earth, Christopher says that it was 'darkness' originally.

"This sumptuous gift set includes a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, the only edition where one can now read the original version of the story before Tolkien re-edited it nearly 30 years later"

I hope they do not really think that Tolkien re-edited The Hobbit nearly 30 years later, he made a few changes before 1967, including the second edition changes, published in 1951.

I also hope that it is not printed in China, it was originally printed in Woking in the UK.

The sale includes a set of The Lord of the Rings, 4th Impression FOTR, 3rd Impression TT, stated as 2nd in description, and a 1st impression ROTK.

Not in wonderful condition, no dust-jackets, but estimated at £50-£80.

I had an Amazon pre-order for the facsimile Hobbit that is being released on the 22nd September, but have cancelled it, as Speedyhen is cheaper with free UK delivery.

http://www.speedyhen.com/Product/J-R- ... ition--Boxed-Set/15397661

Has anyone pre-ordered at a cheaper price than £16.80, with free delivery?
