I've had this copy of The Fellowship for years now and only just noticed the Elvish script for the one ring is upside down. I've had a really hard time getting any information about this. Would love to know if anyone here has any information about this?

The inscription was corrected with the 4th Printing (March, 1966). Here's a picture... the bottom is the 3rd Printing, the top is the 4th.

I am reminded of a great quote from garm, about the ring text being upside down.

'I cannot read the fiery letters' said Frodo in a questioning voice.
'No', said Gandalf, 'and I can't as well.'
