I'm pretty sure you could still buy this new from Tolkien.co.uk until fairly recently (I'm referring to the Alan Lee signed version limited to 500 copies with the different information sheet, but otherwise identical to the non-signed one). They took a LONG time to sell.

I can't image that anyone would ever pay $500 for it (but if anyone wants to, I have a spare one in a box )


They could ask me as well, as I also have a spare.

I am struggling with the £110 price on this UK 1961 3rd edition Hobbit and the 'acceptable' condition from the seller, not a lot to go on from the seller apart from a picture of the 'acceptable' binding.

I wish they could have made the pictures a bit smaller, I can still almost make out the cover of the book.

eBay Item #301217006962

Fortunately they do not discuss much else about the book, such as is it in the original box, and does it have the original tissue paper, this information is possibly in a microdot on the photo.

I would agree, it looks like the auction was ended early, with no bids.

Do you not mean "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition and not "Unfinished Tales", signed by Alan Lee?

The book on eBay was one of the unsigned copies.

Very good price at the moment on a UK 3rd Impression Hobbit, without a dustjacket.

Seller seems to have messed up on Shipping costs, i.e. quoting £150 to send from the UK to Italy, so please bear this in mind if you decide to bid.

The seller has also not shown any images, or discussed the top of the book, which should have a green stain on it.
