Bookdepository says my copy is on the way!
It will be interesting to see what actually arrives.

If it looks more or less like this, I'll be happy. The green they were looking at is quite a bit brighter than this, though, and my gut feel is the true colour is probably somewhere in between their colour and my colour. Not sure if they changed it or not. #ColoursAreHard

Interesting reference to Alice in Wonderland in the original DJ. Hard to imagine a time when Tolkien was unknown and his publisher used this sort of comparison.

79 Years is a long time! Note that "Dodgeson" has the "e" inked out with pen. There was a bit of discussion as to whether they would go without the pen correction, but (assuming nothing changed last minute, of course), the jacket will have the ink correction (it would have been very odd to have not had it, given all the 1937 copies were corrected in this way before leaving the printers).

Does that mean they will print the name with the correct spelling or reproduce the ink mark?
