Re: Need help identifying an edition of the Hobbit

I thank you people for the comments - I should have asked you to proofread my listing before I listed it! I have revised the listing on Ebay. I am now firmly convinced that it is a first edition The Hobbit that was a library copy that was rebound. The maps were likely discarded or covered over, but I still know that in the latest edition of Collected Books there is a reference to some copies being seen with no end maps. I have e mailed one of the authors of Collected Books and they taking a look at the pictures and description and are going to let me know what they think. Again - thank you for the comments.
