This is from the UK 'Book and Magazine Collector' July 1985, and the magazine cost £1, which gives an idea for the values quoted.

Later editions of the magazine had much comprehensive bibliographies than this one, but were never 'complete'.

If you want an exact facsimile you would also have to take on board textual changes between the 1st and 2nd Impression, I am aware of at least two, but I am sure that there are more, these are not recorded in the Hammond and Anderson Descriptive Bibliography.

Page 31, 3rd line from the bottom

1st Impression '...., unless he has changed his habits.'
2nd Impression '...., unless he has chan ed his habits.'

Page 226, 3rd line from the bottom

1st Impression 'I have no idea at the momnet'
2nd Impression 'I have no idea at the moment'

You would also need a new List of Illustrations page, and to recreate the colour illustrations with the 2nd Impression descriptions, i.e. 'Bilbo comes to the Huts of the raft elves', is described as 'The dark river opened suddenly wide' in the second impression.

The challenge would be getting the paper to look the same when these pages were reprinted.

According to the Puppet State website, Leaf by Niggle will be touring in 2017, though no details as yet as where they might be touring.

One paragraph, so many mistakes, though they did manage to work out the year the 1st World War started

Looks like a film to avoid at all costs.

"The film — featuring a script by Angus Fletcher, based on six years of interviews and archival research — will chart the tumultuous events that inspired him to pen Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies: when war broke out in 1914, disrupting his Oxford life with his wife Edith Bratt, Tolkien embarked on four years of battle, hardship, and new friendships, which served to shape his imagination and start him on the path to Middle Earth."
