I do not know how many are available now. The first few do not come up often that I've seen.

This arrived today (shout-out to Urulókë for his logistical help):

I'm in the process of learning Turkish, so picking up The Hobbit in Turkish was a natural step .

Some new arrivals..
Shipping for 'Tolkien:Scholar and Storyteller' needed two weeks from US to Germany, but the bottle neck was customs: two more weeks of processing until it was delivered.
The little nice Hobbit came from Australia and the wrapper from there close by (Thanks Stu )

I like the facsimile Hobbit dust-jacket. I have had a look at my 1951 original dust-jacket and cropped the image to show what was cut i.e. the black bar at the top and some of the Rune text and black bar at the bottom. I'm sure the art department would love to have computers then as Stu's version is a big improvement.

Yeah, the black bar is supposed to be cropped off. Sorry Ithildin, I should have mentioned that - it is only there because a tiny bit of black is better than white if you get the cutting wrong (there is a technical term for it that temporarily escapes me!*). The little cut lines in the corners of the image show where it should be cut.

*Edit: Remembered - it is "bleed".

Got a puzzle, did a puzzle, put it in a frame. ...I’m being told it’s not Christmastime anymore.

Ah, yes, I understand. I already wondered why the print seems not having an accurate size and scaled it down to 97%. Now I know that scale is correct
