I have received from a friend collector some photos of this edition. The book reports that it's a first edition, but if you look carefully the logo on the book, this is different: only yellow instead that red and yellow.

Probably it's a reprint? What do you think?

Dear friends,
Long ago, I bought an American edition of The Hobbit. The book does not mention the date, but it was printed in England by "Unwin Brothers" and should be a copy of 1954.
The strange thing, is that I have found a mistake in the index: "Fore and Water" instead of "Fire and Water".
The title of the chapter, however, is written correctly.

Do you know of this same error in other editions?
