Got this question via email. I am waiting for an answer from HC, but in the meantime, have any of you seen any first impressions?

I have visited several bookshops to try to buy the Pocket 75 anniversary edition all the copies I have seen do not have a full print line but just the number 2. Is there a "First" Edition and is this numbered 1?

And here is the quick response from HarperCollins:

"As far as I am aware all the copies marked 1 went to Australia/New Zealand - we did an early print run in the summer to ensure it could be shipped there for them to publish simultaneously. I asked for the UK run to be marked 1 as well, but was overruled by the stock controllers!"


So get your overseas orders in place if you really want that "1".

Thanks for the information.

Do any of you know some retailers from Australia/New Zealand and have bought already from them?

Working on finding a source for us international (non Aus/NZ) folks.

In the meantime, HC has told me that the first and second impressions were each 22,000 copies.

Dior is in Australia and reports that the only online retailer that currently has it is at

http://www.booktopia.com.au/pocket-hobbit/prod9780007440849.html

It looks like they do not have it in stock yet, and shipping is high for the first book (but drops drastically after that, so order more than one. )
