I have had a bit of success with UK Hobbits recently

Every impression from the 3rd Printing of 1942 to the 24th (10th Impression of the 3rd Edition in 1975), apart from one

I only collect Hobbits with Dust-Jackets and they have to be not priced clipped, hence why no 1st or 2nd Printings, a small number of editions (three) need to be replaced because they do not fit my criteria.

Beautiful collection Trotter! Thanks for sharing!

Interesting little bundle of an Oxford student from the (I think) early 1960s. The wrapper with the egregious spelling error is the pages of Proceedings of the British Academy (1937; reprint of Tolkien's lecture) bound as a standalone booklet.

Happy winner, Berelach :)))
I was also interested, but I didn’t manage to wake up in the middle of the night for bidding...

Thanks both! I haven't been buying too much lately but decided it was high time I had the first edition Beowulf, so I let myself go a bit outside my budget. Feeling good about the decision :)
