That also isn't the signature style he was predominantly using at that time.

Could be real, just as (more) likely isn't.

CT signatures are two-a-penny anyway (thanks to all the limited editions), so I don't think it is worth attributing too much value to them, even where they are genuine.

Well, my replacement Aotrou and Itroun arrived from BD, and this time made it through in perfect condition. It is still a first impression, unlike Kullervo, which went to 2nd impression pretty much right away. Not sure if this implies less popularity or a larger print run.

I think you got quite a good deal for that Hobbit.

Did they switch printing to China?


Like I say, the book I receeived is identical in every respect to the first one, so it isn't clear whether it is a second print from the same printers without the "I" being changed to a "2" or if BD are still supplying from the first print run. Until anyone spies one with a "2", I don't think we will know.

Well, the Facsimile Hobbit that I'm planning to use to make my 2nd impression turned up from Book Depository. Still marked as "I" and identical to the other first impressions. Not sure if this means that BD got more firsts in stock or if the 2nd impression didn't get a numberline change (would not be the first time)/
