Tolkien.co.uk seem to have the FF Hobbit back in stock, which may imply that it is a second print.

http://www.tolkien.co.uk/product/9780 ... +Facsimile+First+Edition+

If anyone happens to get a copy, would be interested if (a) there are any changes to the book, and (b) where it is printed, and by whom.

Edit: Book Depository has it back in stock, so I think we are definitely onto the second impression.

For me, I'll typically go with HC over HM/HMH because typically the quality is better - at least with first printings anyway.


This is true when HC first prints are made in Italy or the UK. However, this does not apply to anything made in China.

I do tend to favor books printed and bound by LEGO.



With Tolkien, we are somewhat lucky - as the majority of the work was printed back in the days when quality was very high, so as collectors we have many high quality books to collect, without having to pay too much attention to the current releases (many of which are basically filler anyway).

Just heard about this. Stay safe Stu.


Will certainly try! Have just boosted the earthquake supplies of food and water (and most importantly -- cat food).

Yes, it is important to keep the 4 people in the world who care about these things informed!

If I might be permitted an off-topic post - I gather from friends and family in Christchurch that there has been a major earthquake in New Zealand. Stu, I know you live some way from the epicentre, but I hope that you and yours are all safe.

Thanks, wellinghall. All good here for the time being. Most of the people I work with are up at Christchurch, but fortunately appear to be safe -- I think people will be avoiding the office today because of the tsunami risk.
