Just in case anyone is interested, I have been monitoring selling prices of Hobbits the last few months.

All numbers are roughly converted to NZD at a rate of 2:1, so just divide the numbers by two for pounds. Red indicates ex-libris or some other stamp/bookplate was present. The top half of each section is "without dustjacket" and the bottom section is "with dustjacket".

More than anything, it shows which years seem to come up more often (e.g. 1975s come up very often)

A separate ISBN for the set would usually generate a new entry - as was the case for the Book People--Geoff Taylor cover art set.

I have merged entries in the past, but there are a few inconsistencies waiting for me to sort out - like the green slipcase Ted Smart H+LR set.

I went way overboard on variations in the first edition LR boxed sets, but that was just me getting a bit carried away.



I'm all for consolidation, as if there were two entries on tolkienbooks.net, I'd then feel the need to try and seek out the other one (and I'm not even a "completeist"). You see the power you wield?

Splendid. Out of interest, what criteria did you apply to determine this as being a different state of the standard HC set, rather than just a different boxed set all together (as per the distinct Ted Smart/Book People entries for LOTR paperback boxed sets in tolkiebbooks.net)?

I'm tending to think that a reprint is most likely. The "the_nile_au" auction still has 5 copies after 5 being sold (it just periodically increments back up to 5), so they must have had a minimum of 10 copies available, and most likely more.
