Was interested in acquiring a hardcover of the above, either a 1994 or 2002 edition. I found the prices on amazon and abe to be quite high, especially for the 2002 edition (> $400 usd on amazon). This seems a bit ridiculous; am I missing something?



Not so far as I am aware. Just usual pricing nonsense - I think I paid $10 or less (for the 2002, I assume -- I never unpacked it after moving to NZ). I don't think it is uncommon.

The website image is a donation.
It is a first printing.
The owner is not on your list.


Ahh, cool. That means I only have one more copy to collect, not two :)

Mine is a second too.


Is the picture on your website of your copy or of another one? If it is your copy, then there are two states of the second impression (one with the illustration several mm further to the right. I had assumed that this was a difference between 1st and 2nd, but maybe not?)

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.

If you have a copy or know of a copy, please chime in here.

Known copies:

1st Impression (Copy 1) - Trotter
1st Impression (Copy 2) - Trotter
1st Impression - Wellinghall (Since donated to TS)
1st Impression (?) - Peter Kenny
1st Impression - Person who supplied image for tolkienbooks.net

2nd Impression - Stu
2nd Impression - Henk Brassien ("Hobbit Hunter")
2nd Impression - Deagol
2nd Impression - Remy
2nd Impression - Garm

Impression Unknown - Sold on eBay 2014/2015
