Just an interesting rather than a particularly lucky find. I bought a copy of Who's Who in Literature 1932 and it has an entry for JRR Tolkien (an in acurate one as it mis-spells Ronald and lists Selections from Chaucer 1925 as one of his published works - when in fact it never saw the light of day).

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.
