Just wondering does anyone possess a First Printing (16th Impression Stated) of the 1966 Paperback Edition of the Hobbit published by Unwin Books

http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=21350

I see from Neil's website that there were 20,000 copies of the 16th Impression printed, however strangely I have never come across a 16th Impression in quite a few years of searching. Just wanted to double-check that it actually exists? Many Thanks.

The Cat is just a "Watermark" added to each of his photos. You can check by looking at his other items.

Only thing that jumps off the page to me is "some wear to the top and bottom of its spine" is putting it quite mildly - actually completely inaccurate.

"Chipped with missing pieces at top and base of spine and detached piece infringing on publisher name at base of spine " may be a little more accurate.

Is that it? Or is there something else?

For anyone interested the Book Depository are selling the 2 Volume Hardback Tolkien Companion & Guide Boxset US Version HMCO on ABE for £18.41 with Free Worldwide Delivery. A fantastic price.

Although they have just slashed the price on their own website, strangely it is more expensive than their listing on ABE (a mistake possibly?)

Many Thanks Wayne (Very Belatedly, Apologies for my oversight in forgetting to reply originally). I just came across this topic again today.

Appreciate the information - and indeed it makes sense that the extra room at the top of the slipcase makes room for easy finger access to the magazines.
