Out of interest, what is the sense from anyone who has purchased Jacket-less 1/1 and 1/2 Hobbits (within the last couple of years) of what they are actually worth?


I think that at the moment prices for GA&U editions,without the original dust jacket, are that the second is roughly 50% of the first, depending on conditions such as damage to the book, book plates, inscriptions, ex-library, etc.

1st Impression GA&U Hobbit (no dust jacket) £5-6000
2nd Impression GA&A Hobbit (no dust jacket) £2500

The current seller has not provided much information on the condition of the book, and only a few photos, so this item may go for less.

A very interesting area though would be if you have the original book and parts or bits of the original dust jacket, how are these valued?

I don't know.

I do not believe that this is a real signed item.

The seller is this bookshop in the UK (http://www.puddletownbookshop.co.uk/)

It may be better for members who think that the signature is not genuine, to email, sales@puddletownbookshop.co.uk with your concerns?

We have nine days to get them to pull the auction by direct contact with the seller.

You can also report the item to ebay if you want but I am confident that nothing will happen by doing so.
