I was in a bookstore in Wellington yesterday and saw the Pocket Hobbit 11th impression, printed by RR Donnelly in China.

Damn thing was close to three times as thick as the first impression (and double the second impession). I didn't photo it, but the black from the front and rear flaps had migrated to the front and rear because the jacket simply wasn't big enough for it's new lardy girth.

I noticed that the Tokien Treasury volumes were looking oddly tubby as well, in particular Tom Bombadil looked like he had been taking steroids.

[Edit: added first impression for comparison]
