Jlong - that is absolutely horrendous! My nine-year-old son could have forged a better example than that.

I really like your display technique too - I really have a good sense of what you like to collect and how proud you are of your efforts!

There is one copy on ABE currently:

First impression of green boxed Hobbit

1st printing, Collector's Edition, green leather hardcover; in a green leather slip case. The book has red/gilt design on the cover and spine and green mottled text edges. The book has a name & date near the spine on the front endpaper, otherwise the book is in fine condition. The book has color and 2-color illustrations by the author. The cardboard slipcase has dulled surface staining along the cover edges on the label side, likely from moisture. The case has just a touch of wear at the opening corners, otherwise the slipcase is fine with a clean label and no internal damage.


US$ 143.50 plus shipping

I looked at the picture, and thought - nothing special, just an Ace edition for a non-ridiculous price. Then I clicked through, and laughed (and laughed, and laughed). There are at least three levels of head-scratching with this one...

Thanks for sharing, Jlong.
