In my copy the 4th and the 5th rune on the second line are switched. This from a 2nd impression of the 1976 Allen&Unwin deluxe edition. Will update with an image soon.

Here it is:

And of course as mentioned the middle section is missing (intentionally).

Maybe we should mail Easton Press and they will correct it implying a second edition

I have dusted off a copy of the Hobbit and compared the runes on the map with those on the cover of Easton's. It looks like Easton press has it correct in the two spots you mention Urulókë.

The errors (or differences) are on the second line.

1. Between the "M" and the "P" is a dot on my map, and two vertical bars on the Easton Press cover

2. Also after the same "P" as mentioned ad 1. there is a rune missing on the Easton Press cover

Can you say a little more about this error? I have to confess I'm not a Tolkien rune expert, but if they are selling these books all these years with an error on the cover it would find it funny (I have a sick sense of humor)

This one I really want but I can't imagine I'll ever buy a book that's so expensive. And it's a rebinding:

Hobbit 1st American Ed
