I agree - the 'T' looks wrong to me.

''But had it not been for a chance visit to Worcestershire more than half a century ago by novelist J R R Tolkien, The Hobbit may never have been made. ''

- not true - The Hobbit had already been in print for a decade and a half by then.

The insert ought to have red lettering etc. Looks like a bootleg to me.

yes, I have a copy of the 6th imp. and the RU editions - p.49 is identical in each.

I'm not a fan of bullcrap merchants either. Another case is Michael White, who basically copied his biography of Tolkien from Carpenter, except for one 'fact' which he (apparently) made up all by himself; that Tolkien saw a hole in the study carpet and so wrote 'In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.'

Sadly that nonsense has found its way into another publication; a guide to Oxford. Won't be long before it's as ubiquitous as the 'Perrot's Folly' nonsense that's been floating round for years.

Having said that, I agree - from what I've read, I can't imagine them selling many copies - so not worth my bothering about, really.
