That edition was never released without a Slipcase.

The one at the Book Depository includes the slipcase.

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.
