Have 2nd Impression


Ta. List updated. Hoping to see if there are more of one impression versus the other out there. Gut feel is that the second may be less common.

Trotter and myself were discussing estimates of how many copies of the 1968 and 1970 "Pleasure in Reading" Hobbit remain, given that they come up for sale so infrequently. I have suspicion that there might be slightly fewer second impressions than firsts. It appears from this small sample that the number of first and seconds is broadly similar.

Known copies:

1st Impression (Copy 1) - Trotter
1st Impression (Copy 2) - Trotter

Sorry, don't have a copy of the Illustrated Guide, so can't help. Has always been on my list of things to pick up cheap second hand.

I am sure he would throw it in for free if you brought the fireplace at £70,000!



Ugh. The fireplace - Complete junk. I really hope that no one ever buys that piece of worthless scrap.
