If it is a proof with orange (?) boards, I saw one on Abebooks a few years back for $300-400 or so (from vague memory). I seem to remember it being up there for a long time, so not sure if anyone ever bought it.

Are uncorrected proofs from the HoMe scarce or very valuable? I'm just asking because I found a copy of The Lost Road (American edition) that is an uncorrected proof.

Has anyone ever seen this copy of the Hobbit before? It has no date in the book, but does state "Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston / The Riverside Press / Cambridge." Obviously, it is an American edition. It is also an ex-library copy. Can anyone tell me anything else about it?

Would be interested to hear what number they have gotten up to so far when the book turns up. My guess would be around about the 300 mark, maybe slightly lower.

Just received two copies today - #339 and #340.

- well, the auction finished on Dec. 2nd, that is, the same day as the first post in this thread. We can't be that quick, can we? >g<

I've had the same response from sellers; usually no reply; sometimes 'oh, thanks' but no real change.
