Notes
Includes Thror's Map and the Map of Wilderland on the preliminary pages. Tolkien's black and white illustrations are not included.

35,000 copies issued. Not reprinted.

The text was completely reset, and in the process the printers made numerous changes to Tolkien's spellings - e.g. dwarves > dwarfs and elvish > elfish. Tolkien did not discover the changes until after publication, when he objected strenuously.
