My copy of the Ninth Impression 1975 version of the book is not price clipped but has a big dark light blue A & U Sticker over the price.

Does anyone know what the price was under the label, if I hold it up to the light, it could be £1.45 and also any ideas about why the sticker does not have a new price on it?

Hi Dior,

Thanks for the response. I must have just timed my searches badly! Good to know that they have been seen in the wild, though, as I would quite like to get a copy.

Cheers
Stu

I have seen them (not all that often) on ebay, mostly ebay.co.uk.

Their price seems to vary greatly, like most of the HoME series but I have seen the odd one go for a low as a few pounds

Hi All,

This is a question I have been meaning to ask for a couple of years (at least!). On Deagol's tolkienbooks.net site, he has an entry for a 1992 HarperCollins Unfinished Tales with a blue dustjacket (http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=64240) that matches the UK HoME hardbacks. This volume also seems to be visible in one of the pictures of his bookshelves on tolkienlibrary (it appears to have an almost-matching spine to the HoME books).

My question (to Deagol or anyone else that knows) is - how come I have never ever seen one like this for sale (ever!). When I search on the ISBN, I only seem to find copies with a different dustjacket ?

Cheers,
Stu

Bonhams have updated their website with a few images of the upcoming action on March 18.

The Hobbit Inscription to Elaine Griffiths is one of te images along with the photo of Tolkien taken by his son.
