Re: Early Hobbit Edition on Ebay

Hi, and welcome. I think you've done a good job of presenting the book - I wouldn't be too worried about the spine damage; I expect a good bookbinder would have that sorted in a jiffy, without any need for re-binding.

As to values; here's a link to abe books' current page with 1940s Hobbits.

Not many of them - only one 1942 ed, and that's the standard A&U edition. having said that, there were only 1500 copies of these, as opposed to the 3000 copies of the Foyles book Club ed. I paid £350 for my Foyles ed., back in the 90s. But then, mine is in VG condition, with a (slightly chipped) dustwrapper.
