Did they switch printing to China?


Like I say, the book I receeived is identical in every respect to the first one, so it isn't clear whether it is a second print from the same printers without the "I" being changed to a "2" or if BD are still supplying from the first print run. Until anyone spies one with a "2", I don't think we will know.

Well, the Facsimile Hobbit that I'm planning to use to make my 2nd impression turned up from Book Depository. Still marked as "I" and identical to the other first impressions. Not sure if this means that BD got more firsts in stock or if the 2nd impression didn't get a numberline change (would not be the first time)/

I doubt it. I don't think the Estate would authorise it, even if they wanted to.

Congratulations! :)

My wife and I chose to have cats instead of humans, which is quite enough for me -- but like your new addition will be, they are a thousand times more important and enjoyable than Tolkien or books.

Welcome to the poverty club.

I believe the correct approach is to simply remove the page. Wait, with that level of dishonesty, I could become a book dealer.

Actually, if you do look at the pictures from one of the more prominent dealers, you do often see a lot of little bits of eraser residue where things have been "tidied up"... Unfortunately it does tend to leave a shiny finish in areas that otherwise would have been flat, so it a naughty practice.
