Any evidence that the 1995 editions exist, or was it a publication error that changed 1992 to 1995?

Aye, I have all of those. Was just checking...

The 3rd impression is basically the same as the 1st & 2nd impressions (line number to denote impression) except the date reads "1995". It looks like a typo, hence Neil's entry on tolkienbooks; stating the "1995 edition 3rd impression" is in reality the 3rd impression of the 1992 edition.

I don't have the 4th impression, but the copyright page (if I recall correctly) looks the same.

Just surprises me that none of the three variants seem to show up with any degree of regularity.


I bit.

Yes, the jacket damage is annoying but, as you say, these so rarely turn up on eBay that I thought I'd be waiting a very long time for a perfect copy.

Going back to the "1995" typo: The reason for the error perhaps being introduced is that the copyright page incorporated the estate copyright blurb after the 2nd impression. Other than this, the copyright pages are identical. Maybe when they made this change the 1992/1995 error occurred.

My first impression seems to be signed by John Howe...

Yeah. If I hadn't already had one of the other variants, I'd have certainly put in a bid. I've seen them now and then, just mostly in hindsight on the sold searches, rather than before hand when I could actually bid.
