Even more confusing. These aren't remotely rare.

Well, according to TolkienBooks.net both the first and second states have that price printed on the front panel ('63s net...') and the third state is the first to show no printed price.



Oh, you could be correct. About 100 times more likely that TolkienBooks is correct. I need to update my files!

I would have thought first state, but you should just be able to tell from the label, right?

I'm not surprised that B&L is on to its second printing. The book seemed to have been sold out at most (online) retailers in the very first week.


That doesn't always imply additional impressions - The online retailers don't necessarily get huge stocks of a title, and these then get refreshed from the publisher's warehouse as required.

That said, in this case the book seems to have done quite well. From memory, CoH was up to 3 printings fairly rapidly.
