Same book, clearly same dealer (under two different names). Two different prices. Bizarre...

I think the problem with restoration is that the general opinion (that I have read online) seems to be that a restored jacket is worth the same (if reversible) or less than the unrestored. Anything beyond very minor restoration is skirting dangerously close to facsimile territory, anyway.

Seems better to just keep the jacket fragments protected for posterity and stick a facsimile jacket on the book to make it look nice in the shelf (or possibly some combination of the two -- with the facsimile behind the genuine jacket, depending on the state of the original).

mmm
I think you wouldn't even get these prices at the moment. The market has definitely taken a slump for all bar very rare items
I'd say £3-4,000 for a 1st
and £1,500 -£2000 for a 2nd

Part jackets are an interesting debate though. What do you do with them?
Have them restored at a high price or try and put in a protective cover no matter what the state?

I guess its a personal preference and over the years I have done both. With good jacket restoration running at £750 + for significant work the former is not cheap for sure.
