*Referred to as the Second Edition, however, the First Edition merely consisted of two proof copies: one bound in leather was presented to Priscilla Tolkien while the other was retained by Alex Lewis.
Two states seen, corresponding to two binding dates. This is the Second State. Copies 26-30 and 34-50 were bound in the later state in 2004. The First State was bound in 1994-95.
There are numerous differences between the two states, most notably the lettering on the binding and the orientation of the illustrated pages. For a detailed listing of the differences between the two states visit Hobbit.ca.
