You're right. I don't think there's a perfect Puffin Hobbit out there (unless anyone can show otherwise!). So far as Tom Bombadil is concerned, I bought the 1972 edition in 1972, in fact. Since then I've acquired two first impressions as well.

What can I say... still trying to find a (nearly) perfect one, but not succeeded yet!

For many years my Tolkien collection was scattered throughout the house, some on shelves, some in boxes, some in the attic. I suspect that there is the odd box here and there still unaccounted for. Still most of it is in one room now and reaching some sort of order at last. One thing I have realised is that I still have a long way to go to get the collection that I want (of course)!

The first photo shows a corner of the room with Pauline Baynes’ famous maps and the full set of Josef Madlener’s postcard series, ‘Figures from Story and Legend’. The second one in the series and the second one from the left is the one entitled ‘Der Berggeist’ said (by Tolkien) to have been the ‘origin of Gandalf’. Below, on the top shelf of this wall, is a selection of mainly UK Hobbits.

Also on this wall are a selection of deluxe editions, academic works, Tolkien's minor fictional works and, as the wider photo shows, Silmarillion editions, box sets, other media and a selection of books with Pauline Baynes’ illustrations.

Below are some more detailed photos of these shelves. I will show the main wall in another post.

EDIT photos too large so will re-edit

Thanks for the info wellinghall. This must have gone up recently as I have been booking a few talks of interest, fortunately nothing at this time. The Convocation House is a wonderful venue. I saw Mark Atherton's talk on Tolkien and The Hobbit there at last year's Ox Lit Fest.

Just arrived and possibly one of the largest paperbacks I have ever seen! I hope the binding is up to the use it will get. No indication that there have been any changes from the hardback edition. Copyright states 2007 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC First issued in paperback 2013.
