>yet people are bidding £97 ($177) on a 1987 50th Anniversary standard hardback of The Hobbit! Yes it had a flyer; but nearly £100!

Lunacy? :)

I'm not sure that kind of attitude is going to win you any kind of friends around here. Funnily enough the members of the relatively small community that post to these forums have -- wait for it -- jobs [that's what means we can afford the books and don't have to sell them :)] and families, so answering your question the very minute you post it might just not be at the top of the priority list!!

"Does anyone sign on to this thing? my my my you can get more action at the floating log on a monday afternoon!!!!"

Sorry that we did not give you an instant answer to your question, instead of complaining you could have looked for the value yourself, the two main marketplaces for Tolkien books are Ebay and Abebooks

Abebooks has the 1982 book for about £80, but this the top end of the market because of Abebooks fees, so you may get up to £50 for selling the book.
