Can you give some additional info about this edition, as you are stating that you are more excited by this edition, than the UK first printing, 21st September 1937, of the Hobbit?

Interestingly Newsweek, at least the US version are doing a special Tolkien edition at the moment.

If anyone gets a copy, would be interested to know if it has anything you think is of interest in it.

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.
