My copy has just arrived and I am v impressed with the quality.

It has no dj but a glossy hard cover and has the five colour, 8 B&W illustrations plus the mirkwood one with the "parchment" colourised versions of both maps with the text on the maps translated into Irish.

I am adding some photos for those who may be interested.

The publisher Michael Everson's interest in Toklien is not just a passing one. His Wikipedia entry states

"Among the scripts "encoded" in the CSUR, Shavian and Deseret were eventually formally adopted into Unicode; two other conscripts under consideration are Tolkien's scripts of Tengwar and Cirth."

My 11th 1972 is same as the 11th impression cover on TolkienBooks.

This was supposed to come out some time back but it finally looks like it will be published on 25 March: a translation of The Hobbit into Irish (Gaelic).

I am pre-ordering a copy. My Irish is a bit rusty but should just be about up to reading it.

It is not cheap (£34.95 GBP or $49.95 USD) but sounds like a good product (hardcover with the Tolkien colour illustrations).

I agree, Trotter, the number is a problem. I have the same issue with the first UK 3-volume paperback of LoTR (1974) where the 1st impressions were exported. In the UK I have seen dozens of copies of these but only one that was a 1st impression (an odd volume of RotK)
