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

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?
