Map tipped into rear in great shape, though lightly stained at border, outside printed area. Hinges started.Most likely the THIRD PRINTING, of the FIRST EDITION printed in Great Britain, then sent to America. An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography states that "The January 1955 batch of Houghton-Mifflin copies included a Houghton-Mifflin title page as printed and lacked any George Allen and Unwin device or colophon". These 500 "January 1955" copies were "earlier impressions; when Houghton-Mifflin were able to indicate their needs in advance, they were printed with the Houghton Mifflin Imprint on the title page". When Houghton Mifflin were unable to place a order prior to printing, A &U (George Allen and Unwin) copies were 'converted' to Houghton Mifflin copies by use of a cancel title leaf or fold. ).
