I now have the first thirty GA&U hardback impressions (with Tolkien's design for the dust-jacket), from 1937 to the 50th Anniversary edition in 1987, and am stopping there, sadly two of these copies are price-clipped so am still looking for better copies

All four of the GA&U first edition Hobbits were 7s6d.

The Foyles edition was 2s6d.

The first hardback price rise was the 5th edition (1951) which was one shilling more, 8s6d.

This one is probably even more ridiculous, don't trust either signature, but if it was a real signature surely you would put it in a different book.
