Yes mine is like that as well, this is because this is the first printing, no reprints are listed so it only takes up half the page and they align with the bottom of the page and not the top.

HC have't been "listing" reprints (e.g. in a 1977 Silmarillion way) for years and a line sequence (what they do use) doesn't take up any more room after each subsequent reprint --so not sure I follow what you're saying Trotter. Copyright page bottom justification of text is hardly a HC format preference, is it?

That said, the copyright material does indeed start half way down the page.

Ok, could be wrong on this, like a lot of times in the past :)

i.e. compare with the Deluxe Hobbit copyright page, which lists the editions and copyright from 1937?

These fill the whole page, so start at the top, but are aligned to the bottom of the copyright page.

Can anyone give any examples of any UK HC Deluxe editions that are not aligned to the bottom of the Copyright page?

Well, they possibly are, but they're filled with so much other rubbish (as you point out) that the top text is at the top of the page anyway. From memory, do most of them not look like they take up full pages?
