...errr, yes, I see my error. For some reason I thought the letter was with the initial item; should really follow your link next time Trotter. Not "way, way", but still way out of my price range. Very nice though. Do you think we can convince Andy (of ADC Books) to bring Hilary's copy of The Hobbit to Moreton exhibition?

Can't afford to buy this, but I'll hopefully be able to go and have a look at it on Tuesday.
My copies also looked the same as these, sadly that was in 1963 not 2010.
-Trotter 3rd July


I decided myself that my doubts were wrong and I bought the item.
-Trotter 5th July


Incidentally Trotter, you selling your other copies?

Heavens! Don't want to think what you paid Trotter --way, way out of my league. Maybe I should buy you a drink in Moreton...

I meant to reply to this a few days back, Gawain. I had a good look at it on eBay & noticed that it was a 2nd impression he had corrected too. (Can't remember why I never bid on it --but you got it for a fair price if I recall.) Very nice. I think it's a great copy; pretty unique with the Shippey marginalia. It is unfortunate the annotations seem predominately to be corrections, with little comment. Thanks for posting. Tho', I don't have any editions of this work, so don't have anything meaningful to add.
