Hi All, Does anyone happen to know what price was printed on the 1942 Hobbit DJ. I know it was 7s. 6d. NET on the 1946, but I'm imagining it was potentially a lesser amount on the '42?

All four of the GA&U first edition Hobbits were 7s6d.

The Foyles edition was 2s6d.

The first hardback price rise was the 5th edition (1951) which was one shilling more, 8s6d.

Marvellous. I knew you would have the answer (on account of having all the books!!!)

I now have the first thirty GA&U hardback impressions (with Tolkien's design for the dust-jacket), from 1937 to the 50th Anniversary edition in 1987, and am stopping there, sadly two of these copies are price-clipped so am still looking for better copies

You don't have a first impression do you?
