My first impression copy is dated 2008, as is my 4th impression copy.

In my experience, I find that the dates given on Amazon need to be taken with a pinch of salt. Sometimes the date given is the date of a reprint rather than the first issue.

I seem to recall that this edition was initially only available in a boxed set with The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales. The Amazon entry dates this as December 2008, but again, how reliable that is I don't know. I bought my set in May 2009, but it had been available for some time before then.

Oops misread the caption. May be the King Edwards OTC before he left for Oxford, so circa 1910?

Given that he appears to be dressed as an enlisted man, I am doubtful.

I have this magazine, but the title in the top left box is 'The Daily-Times Journal' of Fort William.
