Hi everyone, I am keen to pick up a copy of the 1973(?) Hobbit that is green faux leather and comes in a slipcase. I believe the edition was released for a number of further years, and an example can be seen here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Hobbit-J-R- ... kid%3D5129654105491838947


I also like the Michael Hague hardback Hobbit, which is also green faux leather, the illustrations are very different to most other illustrated Hobbits.

You can ask here about signed items, but you are alerting members to the item and you need to be very careful with Tolkien signatures, so many at the moment are fakes.

Sadly from this seller's Ebay history on Tolkien signed items, 100% have been fakes including this one

Is it just me, or is this guy asking very high prices for the items he has listed?

I completely agree, if only I was a serious buyer.

We are happy to provide photos and additional information for SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY.

Someone mentioned wanting one of these recently. I just saw this and thought I'd post it. It is that special edition of Roverandom (25 copies).

Seems to have been re-listed but at £150 higher starting price than 3 weeks ago.
