The auction has finished, but look at the price --£159.90!!? Surely this is inside bidding, or something?

Unfortunately for my sins, I also collect all US Editions (and variations).

Actually Doug's Annotated Hobbit is the only UK edition, I have, that I want in a US edition at present --since it was published there first. I see copies, but they're never in the condition I want. Easton Press? --not sure. I have a EP Silmarillion, obviously...

This one I really want but I can't imagine I'll ever buy a book that's so expensive. And it's a rebinding:

Hobbit 1st American Ed

Yes that was my plan also. Not collecting all US editions, but only grabbing a few that look really nice.

Thanks for the US Editions site, exactly what I was looking for.

I went over your list:

* LotR 1981 Silver Anniversary Edition - On the fence

* LotR Collectors Edition 1974 - Really like this one

* First Annotated Edition 1988 - IF this is the Hobbit it looks good, there isn't anything comparable in the UK is there?

* Hobbit Collectors Edition 1973 - Very nice

* Hobbit 50th Anniversary Collectors Edition 1987 - Very nice

* Hobbit Eclipse Books 1989, 1990, 1990 - This is interesting a graphic novel of the Hobbit; didn't know they existed. Have to get this too.

* Easton Press Editions - I don't know about Easton Press, don't think their designs are very interesting. Seen these on ebay a lot.
