I have tried reporting this Hobbit to Ebay as "Misleading Title" but I don't expect it will have any effect.

In reply to Morgan, the answer is yes. That is the same book - the full title appears on the title page - I have uploaded an image.

What I find intriguing about the acknowledgements is that the editor acknowledges permission from Tolkien which implies she actually corresponded with Tolkien.

That is in contrast with the Open Door to Poetry anthology mentioned by Uruloke earlier in the thread. You can see here that the editor for that book acknowledges Basil Blackwell for permission.

Thank you, Deagol.

Finding something that makes you envious has made my day.

I bought this recently which is a book from 1929 which contains Goblin Feet.

The scant bibliographic information on the internet suggests it was published in London though it was printed in USA.

It lacks a dust-jacket so I can't verify the price.

The text differs slightly from Fifty Poems for Children, eg "gray" for "grey"

Other than that I can find no information about it other than some material about the editor.

I have uploaded some images.
