"Sir John Retcliffe was the pseudonym of the German writer Hermann Ottomar Friedrich Goedsche (12 February 1815 – 8 November 1878) primarily remembered for his antisemitism and the extent to which his fiction indirectly contributed to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

No idea why you would glue the Hobbit into his book

Hi Khamul,

the only information I have on this is from Ted himself (same info he gave you, I believe). Let me know if you want any help trying to track down additional info from HarperCollins, who might recall a few additional details.

Do you recall whether it sold &/or for what price, Stu?

Sorry, I don't. I think it might have been a Buy It Now, where the asking price was above what seemed reasonable. I think at the time I was possibly looking for the HC super deluxe and it didn't look good value relative to one of those.

I guess one of the advantages of being a Hobbit is you can easily hide inside other things.

Seriously, though - you have to ask what the seller is thinking. And if the seller isn't the same person as glued the book inside the cover of a different one, you have to ask what they were thinking.
