A great opportunity to grab this eBay 'Acceptable' copy of the Hobbit, though the seller appears to have forgotten to mention that this item is by eBay terms 'Acceptable'.

He does not point out these salient facts, but gives some guidance for budding collectors, and in his excitement forgot to post any pictures of the ex-library stamps.

"THE HOBBIT BY J.R.R. Tolkien

worthy of any collection
11th impression
would make an excellent addition to any collector / fans collection

some sun marks as per pics and some spine lean, previous owners inscription to FEP, ex-library with stamps, damage to spice(sic) as per pics, some brown (age) spots and dusty page edges

worth much more than the asking price
low starting price, this value only likely to increase with the impending film release.
"

eBay Item #141373097390

This is an interesting book, a 1st printing with commentary from the original buyer.

eBay Item #221519251942

The original buyer in 1962, stated that "This edition, alas, is spoiled by inappropriate illustrations".

I don't agree with these sentiments, but it is interesting that Pauline Baynes, was still being questioned as an illustrator in 1962.

Two questions

Does anyone know if this impression has any adverts in the back, if so are they same as these, from the second impression?

Is the list of GA&U offices the same as the second impression? (This, for perfectly understandable reasons, appears to the last time that the Leipzig address is listed as a GA&U office)

Thanks in advance.

Those are just slipcases for the existing collections though, aren't they? No news on when a new collection including the latest books may hit the streets?


Sorry, but no news at the present.
