Thanks Jeremy for the info.

Unfortunately, I am still unclear with regards to this notch on the "r".

Is it on the vertical stem of the "r" about half way up?

Apologies for my ignorance and blindness.

Many Thanks Again.

Agreed nice find and I think good price myself. Also missed the auction due to the fantastically informative auction title.

But did manage to buy one recently with the signed label (the one with "Published 15 September 1977" at the bottom of label).

Hi,

Just purchased a 1955 1st US Edition of "The Two Towers" (up to now did not have a copy with a DJ).

Anyway, I am just trying to confirm that the DJ is also a 1st Printing DJ.

Upon research I see mention of a "notch" in the letter "r" of "Towers" on the Title of the Dustjacket. However I am not sure what this "notch" should look like. Can anyone clarify?

I do see a little white triangular area cut in on the stem of the "r", but it is quite tiny. Could this be the "notch" or is it something else?

Any other unique issue points on the 1st Impression DJ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks.
