I may have missed it, but I didn't see LotRs on there. Kind of strange, what with The Silmarillion making it onto the list.

Do you have the link for this?

I'd like to see the list :)

Why all the 1's, when I can't see a reason for mentioning them once?

The Hobbit J RR Tolkien Good 1111111111

It is an 8th Impression Second Edition Hobbit :(

eBay Item #311320263108

Though it is cheaper than Stu's awesome Sil :(

I was watching a BBC TV Series called An Island Parish about a Priest in the Falkland Islands, you can see it here if in the UK.

but all the years spotting Tolkien books made them jump out :)

This is mentioned on page 22 of J.R.R. Tolkien A Descriptive Bibliography by Wayne G. Hammond assisted by Douglas A. Anderson

It first occurred in the UK 5th Impression (1951) and was fixed in the UK 7th Impression (1955). As the US editions are bound from UK copies they have the same faults.
