I agree on the rebind. I also have to admit finally holding an older (don't recall the exact edition or impression) copy of The Hobbit in my hand in a bookstore in central London. I really love the size and feel of these editions. I may need to find Stu's database post on values of these and see what the wallet will allow.

I think there is a lot to be said for traditional book-binding looks, and not for experimental bindings, some work and a lot don't.

I have to say that the estimate for this lot is bonkers, £8000-£10000 for a dodgy rebind.

My 1st Impression has no printed price in it, or any labels, and it is not price clipped.

It seems surprising that it has no price at all, I think it should have had a printed price or a price label?
