Can anyone here confirm that they have a 1st impression of the new pb Catlin Hobbit? I've seen four copies now, all have been 2nds.

I have a feeling they might have at my local bookstore in NZ. I'll have a look and see what impression it is (assuming I didn't just imagine it).

The collectors edition sounds interesting, what with the facsimiles and all. But if it's priced that high I will have to give it some serious thought before I decide to take the plunge.

I have also been looking at the Bodleian site, to get an idea on pricing of the new book, and looking at prices for Marks of Genius, an earlier exhibition that included Tolkien, these are possible prices for the new book. The Bookseller confirms the price for the hardback at £40.

Small format paperback (Tolkien: Treasures) - £15
Paperback - £25
Hardback - £40
Collector's Edition - £200

This is the £200 Marks of Genius edition, https://www.bodleianshop.co.uk/exhibit ... of-genius-collectors.html

Oh that looks like a beautiful publication. If this is an example of their standard, I'm even more excited about their new Tolkien book.

While poking around a bit (thanks for the news sharing!), I ran across this book from Bodleian, and I am thinking if it is worth purchasing. Anyone here have it? Does it have Tolkien's maps reproduced in it?

Treasures from the Map Room
£35.00
Product Code: BK2777
A Journey Through the Bodleian Collections
Edited by Debbie Hall
April 2016
ISBN: 9781851242504
"This book explores the stories behind seventy-five extraordinary maps. It includes unique treasures such as the fourteenth-century Gough Map of Great Britain, exquisite portolan charts made in the fifteenth century, the Selden Map of China – the earliest example of Chinese merchant cartography – and an early world map from the medieval Islamic Book of Curiosities, together with more recent examples of fictional places drawn in the twentieth century, such as C.S. Lewis’s own map of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien’s map of Middle Earth." [sic]
