A copy of the Houghton Mifflin Hobbit, described as with Tolkien's signature in the bottom margin of the frontispiece plate, is to be offered by PBA Galleries of San Francisco on August 5th. The online catalogue page is here. The date is said to be '[1960]', but as the list of works includes The Adventures of Tom Bombadil it can't be earlier than 1963. The dust-jacket is labeled the fourteenth impression, which also points to 1963. The web images enlarge only so far, but enough to see that the 'J.R.R. Tolkien' signature is in blue ink and has certain questionable characteristics of script. The house estimate is $5,000-8,000.
