_Tabi no Nakama_ 1 Because of confusion of impression management of Hyronsha at that time, it is not clear. The 13th is the latest impression recorded as such in the book, but from multiple different dates given for certain impressions there were at least 24 actual impressions. At least once textual change was made. Latest impression of old text is 7th impression s53(78)/3/10. Oldest impression of new text is 6th impression s54(79)/5/30. This must be according to the note about Gladden Field of Guide to the Names in The Lord of the Rings.
Impression of Ureshino is marked “U”, and impression of Ayameno is marked “A”. In older impressions, impression date is printed on separate paper and attached to the book after book is made. In later impressions, It is printed directly. Impression that date is printed directly is marked “D”.
