I have a 15th Impression 1965.
The printers made a mess when they set up the type for the printing history on the Third Edition 1966:

What should have read as:

Fifteenth Impression 1965
Third Edition (Sixteenth Impression) 1966


was actually set down as:

Third Edition (Fifteenth Impression) 1966
Sixteenth Impression 1966


This error was never corrected.

The Third Edition includes four colour plates rather than one, and remained the same up to 1974 when they reset the text and added another colour plate.

Beren,

Do you have any news on the HarperCollins History of The Hobbit boxed edition? David Brawn mentioned it at the online launch party I think. If I remember correctly it will include The Hobbit in a new jacket design as well. Any idea when it will be published?

I really want to read John Rateliff's books, but would prefer to buy just the set, rather than pay for the separate books now, and then the set later.

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).
