Hi-

It's a used book, in "Like New" condition, that came from Amazon.com. I'll return it and look for another.

I appreciate your getting back to me so quickly.

John

This question comes up regularly.

Unlike philately where errors are much prized, they are not in books and will usually reduce the value of the book to nothing.

If this is a new book from Easton Press, then I would see if they would replace it for you.

Hi everyone-

It's my first post here - so here goes. I just bought a copy of The Hobbit (Easton Press) that has some printing errors. Pages 130, 131, 134, 135, 138, 139, 142 and 143 are completely blank. I called customer service at Easton Press and the lady there hadn't heard of any problems with any pressings of this book. Has anyone heard of anything like this from these Easton Press copies?

Does this make it semi-collectable or just worthless since it'd virtually unreadable. See the pictures below.

Thanks for any and all help with information-


John Lewis

J.R.R. TOLKIEN. An autograph letter signed November 19, 1957, creator of a whole new world in his epic The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Tolkien writes, in a self-deprecating fashion, to Professor Przemyslaw Mroczkowski, Polish historian of English Literature, "My wife and I are very gratified for your invitation [from] you and your wife. I would, of course, but for the thought of the trouble we should be giving, be far more pleasant to have lunch chez vous." "I am dreadfully sorry that we cannot manage this Tuesday; but I do hope that you will find a chance to ask us again! (If I go to America at all, I will not be until the middle of March at the earliest). This is a very crowded week, and my wife is unfortunately not able to do many things (pleasant or otherwise) in succession. Tuesday is quote a good day usually." "I do not understand your use of 'bold'! It is extraordinarily kind of you both to bother about us. We are quite unimportant people. And I do hope that I have been bold enough to address you as a colleague without title. You will please do the same to me."
