Is this cheap for the FS? What impression are we on now anyway?

£22.95 is not bad for The Hobbit it is a nice book, 2 copies on ebay at the moment and at about the same price with the discount.

Impressions for Folio Society are very difficult to gauge, does anyone know of any good resource for Folio Society publications in terms of impressions?

Hmm...

There's a lot of copies out there --& with careful & persistent questioning it's pretty easy to nail down 1st impressions (in this format) of all the FS Tolkien editions. I've never really seen the point (personally that is --as I wasn't collecting when they first appeared in the late 90's) of buying direct (FS Tolkien that is), as they can all be picked up second-hand (as you suggest) for comfortably under £50. Not new admittedly; but pretty close, as people probably don't read FS copies too many times, I don't think.

FS have produced some fine books over the years. A good resource is FS's own bibliographies which, again, can be picked up second-hand. I have Folio 50 --a beautiful (an immense) book in its own right (--altho' only covers to 1996, if I recall.)

I've got a Silmarillion first impression signed by Mosley actually...

The latest FS bibliography, I think, is Folio 60 btw --it cover to 2006, so would probably have the kind of impression information you're looking for. If I can find a decent copy, for a decent price, I'll buy it & tell you what it says.
