Would you have a photo of the copyright page?

Does it state "16th Impression 1966"?

After so many years without finding one, I don't think I can accept that it exists until I see it with my own eyes!!!

Many thanks.

P.S. There was also a 16th Impression sometime in 1973 (due to renumbering of impressions).

Christina and I have a copy also, a wedding gift from Rayner Unwin. A scan of the copyright page is below. I made the initial description of this edition for my Tolkien bibliography from the deposit copy in the British Library (acquired 11 July 1966).

Edit: Trotter inserted picture directly into post, and if you look at the picture you can see two signatures through the page
