So I happened to take a look at the copyright page of my Harper Collins deluxe Hobbit and I can't seem to figure out which edition and impression it is. Isn't there supposed to be a number line that mentions it?

Apologies if this is a dumb question and I'm totally missing something

Please see attached pic of copyright page.

That's first impression (thus). There is no numberline (quite often missing on first impressions, but then added for later ones).

That said, the second impression also has no numberline(or it might have a "1" -- can't remember) or statement of reprinting. But it is printed in China, which is the giveaway, given it does not identify itself as a reprint.

In terms of edition, all current printings, save for the facsimile first are fourth editions of the text.

Post #354 (https://www.librarything.com/topic/157761) shows the physical difference between the 1st and 2nd impressions. CjCostano mistakenly says "Clays" in the paragraph above the photos, when he means "L.E.G.O".
