You are right in that it is not in the very early paperback Tree and Leaf paperbacks, but I think it is included in all the UK paperback Tree and Leaf's, published from the 1970's, including the latest copy from HarperCollins.

Have a look at the listing below

http://www.tolkien.co.uk/titles/41550 ... r-r-tolkien-9780007105045

and thanks to Deagol it appears that there are two variants of this boxset (I suspect Mr Faith's set is the more common set).

Another fine listing from Mark Faith and a £159 bargain.

Unwin paperbacks 1977 impressions, special slipcase editions. Scuffing to spines, but books are stiff, unread. I've never seen one of these before and I sell a lot of Tolkien. It must be rare! A must for any complete collection. As far as we know this is the only known printing of the story- The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth.

I can only find five examples for sale on Abe (at much more sensible prices), http://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/Sea ... +Hobbit+and+Other+Stories

No it is not. It is also printed in Essays and Studies by Members of the English Association(1953), and most paperback copies (EDIT published after 1976) of Tree and Leaf

I agree, a best-seller that has been pretty much constantly in print for 75 years (barring The Luftwaffe and paper shortages), must be a much better seller than Dan Brown's first book

From Wikipedia so has to be right

#3 The Lord of the Rings (approx 150 million books sold)
#4 The Hobbit (approx 100 million books sold)
