Thanks tolkienbrasil!

That was fun to watch, and has me thinking of an educational youtube channel (explaining differences between editions/states, showing examples of bookseller terms, etc.) - perhaps members here can help out too!

For those interested, here is the link to tolkienbrasil's YouTube channel (there are already two more videos up, Roverandom and Bilbo's Last Song): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj5-YE_x424rzcBrkVxHu1w

My copy of the first edition seems to be a variant of "State 1" with pages 406-407 and 428-429 in reverse order... So "State 1" but with pages 428-429 in reverse instead of 427-428. No replacements or corrections have been made whatsoever.

Your best bet may be to keep an eye on eBay and see what the selling price (not asking price!) is when these come up. "Manufactured Collectables" are notoriously fickle when it comes to pricing, unfortunately.

Looks like the original RRP was $699.

One sold for 170 pounds at auction here:
http://www.staceyauction.com/Auction-Detail_63568

Another one sold for 425 pounds here:
eBay Item #291291242716

And there is one currently on eBay with a BIN of 590 pounds.

I would guess that the somewhere between 170 pounds and 425 pounds is closer to the mark than the 590 pounds, as collectables rarely hold their value (in my experience), and 500 units is quite a lot of them. At the end of the day the value on any given day is what someone happens to want to pay for it at that instant in time. With books, it can vary wildly for the same title. What sells for price X one day will sell for double (or half) the next day, with no logic as to why.

Someone else may have a better idea of price, but I think most people here are probably primarily collectors of printed materials, more than anything.

Hi

Can anyone help? I own one of the above pieces (No 25/500). I am trying to get a valuation, but seem to be getting mixed price. Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me any advice. I have the original box and the certificate of authenticity which is in a pewter frame.

Thanks.

Kim
