The Estate are not going after people using Shire in their name but Enterprises (Saul & Co) are, FITS look out.

Nearly everyone in England, Scotland, and Wales have lived in an area called a shire for at least 1000 years

And there you have it - the word "Tolkien" does not appear in those two books, much to their chagrin. (They used "Tolkien Enterprises" and "Tolkien Quest" books, and... for years, until they got in trouble over it).

Yeh, the trouble is everything Middle-earth Enterprises license is, as they state, based on "Tolkien works" --& they own "exclusive worldwide rights to motion picture, merchandising, stage and other rights in certain literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien including The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit." Making them remove "Tolkien" from their name is total pedantry, in the grand scheme of things (--if that's what happened). Peter Jackson's films aren't based on any old Lord of the Rings and any old Hobbit --they're based on J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Whether The Tolkien Estate like this connection, or not, is immaterial --the connection exists.

Yeh, 1977 was when the Art Deco movement was --wasn't it?

The dust jacket is not price clipped stating 6s, and is in good condition...

Hmmm... I'm not sure if "good" really covers it.

It's amazing the difference ten years can make in the price:

Thanks for the links, Red. I couldn't resist buying the 1966 Hobbit, seemed to be in a very good condition and quite a good price!

Unless they started using barcodes in 1966, that isn't a 1966 Hobbit. I'm pretty sure that US Editions always state the copyright as being 1966, even on much later printings...

Edit: The book states 25th printing, which is from 1968 (if the article I just looked at is correct), so the dust jacket with the barcodes does not match the book.
