I was wondering if someone could help me with this. I recently acquired an older copy of The Return of the King published by Houghton Mifflin. There is no date inside the book, only that it was printed in Great Britain. The dust jacket does have the date "1954" on the back panel. Obviously not a 1954 edition, but was wondering what year it was printed. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks

Thanks for both your replys. I was a little curious about the different printings and thought this was the appropriate venue to look for an answer. It's interesting that here in Canada I seem to run into both UK and NA versions of Tolkien's books.

Interesting. Does anyone else out there have any non-Tolkien books signed by Tolkien and verified by two (un-named) highly-respected bookshops?

Silmarillion Question [Ballantine Books edition]

I recently acquired a first Ballantine books edition of The Silmarillion, and was surprised to find that at least two of the points that denote the earlier printings of the hardcover book are present in this paperback. The period after Feanor is missing and the italicized “and” is present (Lord of Waters and King of the Sea) in the Index of Names. Not being too familiar with publishing or printing practices, I wondered if anyone could enlighten me as to why this would be the case given that in subsequent editions of the hardcover, these mistakes were rectified.
Interesting to note that the Unwin paperback edition from the same year, 1979, does have the corrected text.
