Was looking at / examining the books briefly today and they are by no means identical.

The First Printing is printed on a much lower quality (thin and dull) paper. The second printing is of a much better quality - bright white and heavier paper.

The result is that the Second Printing is about 50% thicker than the First.

I also noticed that the gilt title on the spine of the second printing reads "The Hobbit" over 2 lines whereas the First Printing just reads "Hobbit".

AH 50 was my first issue when I joined the TS, back in '81.

I have just been to Waterstones and they have not heard of the Harper Insider, so before anybody else goes I will try and find out from HarperCollins how to obtain the magazine.
