This vendor has two first edition Hobbits - here's a link to one of them:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOLKIEN-THE-H ... tible&hash=item1c2b380bbf

Part of the rather over-excited spiel runs:

"The endpapers (maps) have been removed. It has no flaws to mention. The pages are bright and all present – including the two pages of advertisements - a flawless copy! "

Now, while I don't want an irate vendor to come running in here, flinging monkey-poo - - I do have a question: how can a 1st ed. Hobbit with the maps removed be a flawless copy? oh, and how come he's asking such silly prices?
