Some days ago, I bought a first edition of "The Lord of the Rings", 1954-1955 (2/2/1). I've also the first edition 4/2/2.

I've compared the "The Two Towers" (2/2) and "The Return of the King" (1/2), and I have found some differences, that I reported in a note on my website.

What do you think about that?

One of The Two Towers in the pictures looks to be the third impression, it does not have 1954 on the title page

I think you have may have a point about the printers for the second impression, my copy is Jarrold and not K&W, but just because it was printed by one printer does not mean that it was bound by them, and the article refers to binders.

Your points about the ROTK are answered by Deagol on this page http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/1st-rotk.php

"This was not the case - all later impressions included the damaged text, although the signature mark was removed after the second impression."
