Trotter and myself were discussing estimates of how many copies of the 1968 and 1970 "Pleasure in Reading" Hobbit remain, given that they come up for sale so infrequently. I have suspicion that there might be slightly fewer second impressions than firsts. It appears from this small sample that the number of first and seconds is broadly similar.

If you have a copy or know of a copy, please chime in here.

Known copies:

1st Impression (Copy 1) - Trotter
1st Impression (Copy 2) - Trotter
1st Impression - Wellinghall (Since donated to TS)
1st Impression (?) - Peter Kenny
1st Impression - Person who supplied image for tolkienbooks.net

2nd Impression - Stu
2nd Impression - Henk Brassien ("Hobbit Hunter")
2nd Impression - Deagol
2nd Impression - Remy
2nd Impression - Garm

Impression Unknown - Sold on eBay 2014/2015

Sorry, don't have a copy of the Illustrated Guide, so can't help. Has always been on my list of things to pick up cheap second hand.

I am sure he would throw it in for free if you brought the fireplace at £70,000!



Ugh. The fireplace - Complete junk. I really hope that no one ever buys that piece of worthless scrap.

Printed version of the PIR jacket... Came out pretty well. Colours are always a bit tricky when you don't have a printer on-hand to test the colours against, so the blue is a bit lighter than the actual boards, but that's no great drama, and I'm pleased with the result.
