Would you have a photo of the copyright page?

Does it state "16th Impression 1966"?

After so many years without finding one, I don't think I can accept that it exists until I see it with my own eyes!!!

Many thanks.

P.S. There was also a 16th Impression sometime in 1973 (due to renumbering of impressions).

Hi Wellinghall,

Nice Shelf!!

Quick question: What is that book "Philological Miscellany"?

Is there any Tolkien Related Content?

Many Thanks.

Well, the cover looks fantastic. Is the spine as good? (That's always been the problem for me, the edges of the spine seem to wear so quickly and leave lines of white...)

You're right. I don't think there's a perfect Puffin Hobbit out there (unless anyone can show otherwise!).


Pretty close to perfect?
