Hi everyone,
I am keen to pick up a copy of the 1973(?) Hobbit that is green faux leather and comes in a slipcase. I believe the edition was released for a number of further years, and an example can be seen here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Hobbit-J-R- ... kid%3D5129654105491838947

My question is: was the same book ever released without the box?

So, for example, is this the same item: http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/book/9780395177112/The-Hobbit

The picture of the book seems to be the right one, and the book depository told me they would refund if the book wasn't the one in the pic, but it also seems a mighty low price for a slipcased edition. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks

For me its a real mixed bag - mainly UK firsts but if something comes along I fancy and have the money! then I try and buy it. I do like some of his older pieces Beowulf and his piece in Essays to Charles Williams is a good read as well.

The interviews sound good and maybe I need to take a look at some of these as well.

Trotters advise is good and I would be very very careful about buying with so many fakes around. I am afraid to buy Tolkiens signature is a costly business and I dont know of any economical ways around it.

Supply is low , Demand high and thus this will drive prices up.

If you see one cheap (ie certain ebay sellers) then it is fake for sure.
Stick with the books if i were you.

You can ask here about signed items, but you are alerting members to the item and you need to be very careful with Tolkien signatures, so many at the moment are fakes.
