I have asked HarperCollins as to the status of this book,

We took delivery of the stock from the printers on 15 November and this has now been pushed out to retailers, including a quantity to amazon.co.uk. It is obviously a hugely busy time and some online and retail stores may be experiencing delays in turning stock around. We do have a few of the 500 copies left in our warehouse, and they can be ordered direct from Tolkien.co.uk if buyers find they can’t get them elsewhere.


I cancelled my Amazon order and ordered instead from tolkien.co.uk, states it is being dispatched on the 8th.

Another bargain (£10 book) from the same seller who seems to live in a dreamworld or possibly faerie, I think this is an eBay seller to avoid (£195 quoted).

£225 for a 7th printing (and does not look to be in that good a condition). It is a mystery to me how they arrive at these prices, I would have thought £10 would be a bit on the high side (even if it had the elusive blue sticker )

I think all the references that I can see in the papers are OCR (Optical Character Recognition) errors from the scanning. The computer is checking a dictionary for words which must include Hobbit and correcting to that.
