Hi Trotter,

I am not sure that garm's copy is from the run of 50 (which may not exist). His copy is Number 27, but it is probably from the original print run of 250. Garm can you confirm this?

In terms of priority, I think it may be as follows:

1. 1992 Copies Marked A-Z and the numbered 250 print run (numbered
on rear cover). Softcover.

2. The 50 print run (not seen and may not exist).

3. 2007 Un-Numbered print run of 100 copies and 12 Hardbound Copies
bound in Marbled Paper over boards.

Anyone with any different thoughts?

Indeed, there is a third impression from 1976.

With regards to The Hobbit with an Introduction by R.S. Fowler. I believe there were 3 printings (1972, 1974 and 1976).

I certainly have the 1972 and 1974 Printings and I will check later, but from memory, I think I have a copy printed in 1976 also.

This is an extract from one of my posts on this forum from Feb 2008 regarding the same topic:

"As such, this is not quite a limited edition of 100 copies (There were one or two previous 'Limited' Editions). Thorton's are actually the publishers (Wim Meeuws) and the booklet is currently 'in print' and available.

I believe there were two other limited edition print runs (One being 250 copies and the other 50). I am not sure which was the first print run (possibly the 250 print run).

The current print run of 100 copies is not numbered. The earlier 250 print run is numbered on the back cover. I don't have one from the print run of 50 copies (if this exists - I belive from a previous conversation with Wim, that some/most/all of these may have been lost when he moved)."

In addition there are also 12 copies bound in paper over boards which were printed in addition to the current 2007 Limited Print Run of 100.

I also think that there may have been another 26 copies (Marked A-Z) in addition to the original 250 print run (same softcover binding as the original 250) - not 100% sure about this.

As Khamul stated, it has a complicated printing history and there may well be another print run other than the ones I know about.

And indeed, there are copies from the un-numbered 2007 Print Run of 100 still available for sale even now (on ABE and ILAB).

There is also a small mention/reference to the Hobbit in the 1938 July-August Issue on Page 232.

And in the 1938 November/December Issue, there is a few lines (Hobbit publication notice and price) on Page 365.
