Thanks for that. I am working on a Hobbit update for TolkienBooks.net and just wondered if my 1965 copy was misbound or if A&U had left the illustration out on purpose. I have some earlier copies but not the 1963 impresion. It looks like they only omitted it from the last impression of the Second Edition.

Does anybody have an Allen and Unwin copy of The Hobbit printed in 1961, 1963, or 1965?

I would be interested to know if it has the colour frontispiece of The Hill opposite the title page.

Details on 1961 or 1963 (12th-14th Impression) Houghton Mifflin copies would also be appreciated (they were printed with the A&U copies).

I have just realised that I have forgotten to include The History of The Hobbit in this update.

If anybody spots any more omissions - please let me know.

I have just published another update at TolkienBooks.net:

The revision and expansion of the 2000-Present section of the bibliography has completed at last. It now includes over 80 entries, so for the sake of clarity has been split into three sections:

Books and Periodicals
This consists of books by Tolkien, together with books and periodicals including contributions by the Professor, i.e. sections A, B and C of Wayne Hammond’s Tolkien bibliography.

Letters, Artwork and Miscellanea
This collects together published letters (both partial and complete), artwork (published separately and in collections) and other miscellaneous bits and pieces, i.e. sections D, E and F of Wayne’s bibliography.

The Children of Húrin
At present there are only two editions of the latest Tolkien book, but HarperCollins have already announced a large print edition, and no doubt a paperback edition will appear after Christmas.

In addition, the intro-pages for each of the main sections of the bibliography have been re-styled and the navigation bars simplified a little.

The Tale Goes On section has been split in two, with the division made in 1990 to tie in with the acquisition of Unwin Hyman by HarperCollins:

After Tolkien Part 1 – 1974-1990

After Tolkien Part 2 – 1991-Onwards

Coming Next Month…The next section to be revised and updated will be The Hobbit. I hope to add details of the illustrations and maps included in each edition, and where possible the number of copies printed. If you have any suggestions for other information to include please leave a comment.

The main problem I have with the black quarter leather editions that HC put out was that nothing matched - they were all different heights, the spine lettering varied and they even changed the covering on the slipcase for the last one. They don't easily slide in and out of the slipcases either, and the cloth has a tendancy to fray.
Even though the more recent deluxe editions use cheaper binding materials, I think that they 'work' better and look much more presentable.
