Hello Laurel,

I've run across a couple of dustjackets for the 1st impression that were about 1/4" shorter in height. One had been trimmed by a library to put in one of the old style dustjacket protectors. The other one was a 2nd or 3rd impression copy that had the "?nd/rd Impression" scraped off, leaving a thin area that you could really only see when held up to the light. Hopefully that is not what you are looking at. Other than those I have never heard of one being an odd or smaller size.

Is anyone familiar with hardback (PermaBound) issues of the Ballantine Lord of the Rings. I had someone with a question about them and I have no info to give them. I always thought the PermaBound books were paperbacks that had been turned into hardbound books for library use. Any info would be appreciated.

Hey Beren, you weren't the only internet bidder. I know I had to get up earlier than you to bid on them!! Probably dropped out of bidding earlier as well. Someone really really wanted them!!

I'm sure a lot of you have noticed the 2nd UK Impression of the Hobbit that is listed on ebay. Also some of you may have noticed that some or most of the photo's were taken by myself some years ago. The link to the auction is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280724837525? ... _trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The reason I'm posting this notice, the seller indicates the book is in the original cloth with repairs to the spine tips. Then the photo's of mine, show that book, but not the exterior. The photo's that have been added after my request show a fully rebound copy, which also appears to have been one that I had rebound, by the small JRRT monogram on the spine versus the runes. I just wanted to point out that something is very wrong on this auction. It may be legit, but something is a bit hinky. The seller has not answered my questions about whether it is rebound or not, says to read the description (mine) and then goes and posts photo's of the fully rebound copy. Just wanted to warn anyone who might be considering bidding on this auction. Photo's of the original 'repaired' cover are attached.
