or if you did not get the bargain above in the three times it was sold, how about this, third time you sold it would be over £1000.

Missed this last November when it first came out

"Brian Sibley, author of over 100 hours of radio drama and presenter of hundreds of radio documentaries comes on the show to talk about his work for The Hobbit movie guide in the run up to the release of film 2 on the 13th December 2013.
Brian is widely known as the author of many movie 'making of' books, including those for the Harry Potter series and The Lord of the Rings so to get him in a room talking with Publisher of The Hobbit David Brawn was an audible treat. For all you fans out there in preparation for the The Desolation of Smaug here's a very rare and poignant interview about this great man's work and passion.
"

Brian firstly discusses how he was introduced to Tolkien and talks about the excellent BBC radio drama series of the Lord of the Rings. He then offers his insight into Peter Jackson and primarily his adaption of the Hobbit.

Welcome to the site, Stu pointed you towards the excellent www.tolkienbooks.net which, fortunately for us, makes this information very easy to find.

I would also recommend the Descriptive Bibliography and you can also find more information about this book at the same site.

Thats brilliant, thanks Stu. It surprises me that this information is not easier to find, especially given an author with such a high profile.

I have seen the item listed on ebay for £192.00 which seems a little extreme:

eBay Item #231215044580

Yet there is a mint copy going for £10 with 5 days remaining & no bids:

eBay Item #151365297064

As we said this is a fantastic book with such amazing artwork. Why would anyone want to give it away for the price of a couple of pints?
