Hi Julie,

This is one of those items that there are only very few copies, of but conversely there are only a very few people who would be interested in collecting it. There's no real way to say a market value for it since there is so little (no) data on how much people have paid in the past. You will just have to try and find a buyer, if you are looking to sell!

I do not think that Marquette has a copy in their collection - that might be a nice place for it to find a home, if you are willing to donate it - let me know if you want to pursue this avenue, and can help get you in touch.

Thanks for moderating, Khamul and Trotter! I have been out of the country (adopting my second daughter) for the month, and mostly away from the computer and unable to stay on top of things here. Back now, and should be able to start sharing more news, and working on the site fixing things and clearing out spam bots! Hope to make that process easier as well.

I have not put in a CAPTCHA system yet, because they tend to annoy real people much more than they slow down bots. I will improve the system though, one way or another.

That is way too much for that book, yes. I have seen first printings go for much less than that, though obviously not shrinkwrapped.

Question I have is, how does the seller know the numberline on the copyright page, if the box is sealed in shrinkwrap?

Another find in the boxes - just a few copies of the Marathi (India) translation of The Hobbit. Published in 2011, and with only 5000 copies printed, this is a very nice hardcover edition for Hobbit translation collectors. It is illustrated by Alan Lee and translated by Meena Kinikar. All copies are brand new and still in shrinkwrap. Shipping is included in the price (USA and International) but you MUST choose the right option below! I will contact you if you have tried to order with the wrong destination, based on your shipping address. Thanks for understanding!

The Hobbit (Marathi Translation) illustrated by Alan Lee
By J. R. R. Tolkien, translated by Meena Kinikar
ISBN: 978-81-8483-374-4
First Printing
Hardcover in dustjacket, 2011

Yes, Stu is more clearly making the point I was trying to make as well - the content is not what primarily drives us here, is it?

For book collectors, first printings of important material is a common item to collect. For more than a few volumes of Tolkien Studies, this applies.

While there is much less talk on the forums here between non-book collectors, there are significant communities of secondary material collectors - fanzines, doctoral theses, ephemera, [toys, calendars, movie props, etc.] and scholarly criticisms. Far be it from me to tell them in what form they should collect...

So to circle back on the start of the conversation - I am only disagreeing with this comment you said Khamûl: "I don't think they're worth physically collecting." I disagree, I do think they are worth physically collecting. You are not wrong in thinking as you do, which is why you don't collect them! I just happen to fall on the other side of this preferential fence.
