Hi all,

I'm looking for some guidance...I've just got hold of a 1st edition ROTK published by HMCO, and it is entirely lacking any date information (title page and copyright page).

Going by the very helpful detail on www.tolkienbooks.us, it looks like this means I have either a 4th or a 5th impression. So my question is - is there an easy way to determine which it is?

And by easy I guess I mean other than getting hold of the Steven Frisby article from The Tolkien Collector
