eBay Item #301292509506

So I should pay £182.98 for a book published on 31/12/1961 (this book was first published in 1962 at least a day later) by HarperCollins (don't think they were around in 1962) and they state in the description

"Please note, the image is for illustrative purposes only, actual book cover, binding and edition may vary."

If you buy from this ebay seller, then check that the dust jacket is same one as in the pictures that they supply and is exactly the same as the description that they supplied.

Video interview with Peter Kenny about his Tolkien collection.

Having watched this, there is not much attention on his book collection, but instead focuses mainly on the films and collectables.

To be fair, Trotter, would any seller who describes a book in one sentence, be likely to spot this kind of mis-match? Clearly the jacket is still a third edition jacket; just not a 1975 jacket. I'm guessing this is a c1966-1969 jacket; by 1970 the jackets had both imperial & metric, didn't they?... he asks the man with every impression of The Hobbit...

The dust jacket is from the 1966 Hobbit, the seller stated that they used the wrong photo.

The 1970 Hobbit has the price in £.s.d. and decimal currency.

25s. = £1.25p.

Wish I did have all the impressions of The Hobbit, have the most expensive one missing :(
