This is a 2nd Impression Dust-Wrapper, but in such poor condition, it is certainly not going to add the asking price of £5000 to a 2nd Impression Hobbit, or much at all.

Missed this remarkable comment from the seller

"The dust wrapper is in fair condition"

On that basis all my dust wrappers are in awesome condition

One bid in the last auction, they ignored 'buyer beware'.

Urulöké,

I forgot about all these.

I can't believe how many books Andrew (Trotter) fits on those shelves!

Neil (Deagol), I like the "Uncommon magazines, journals and offprints" picture--very nice stuff.

Jeremy (Urulöké), I really like those bookcases.

Pieter's (Beren)collection makes everyone jealous.


Need to update my profile on the Tolkien Library, lots more books and bookcases since then

It is not even released yet, but you can get signed copies of Jemima Catlin's Hobbit from Mark Faith, would it not be better if HarperCollins issued signed copies (they do have a website tolkien.co.uk), and not have to pay a £12 markup on the Amazon price from Mr Faith

eBay Item #231033693012

If you want a signed copy, then it may be worth waiting to see what does appear on tolkien.co.uk


There are signed copies on sale in Waterstones stores.


HarperCollins have told me that

"Approximately 1,000 signed copies are being distributed to independent bookstores and branches of Waterstones. " and tolkien.co.uk will also have signed items for sale.
