The book is an ex library book and possibly a library edition of the Hobbit - IT has NO front and rear maps I have researched this book to the best of my ability and have found that some library editions of the first printing of the Hobbit did NOT contain maps


A lot of libraries rebound books (these were not specific library editions). The Hobbit has the maps on the bindings and when the book was rebound the maps were disposed of with the original binding.

Bargains like this don't come along very often, so don't all bid at once.

J.R.R. Tolkien Four Books Boxed Set (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings) by J.R.R. Tolkien 1986 Ballantine Paperback.

only $99,999.99 or £62,912.86 (bit disappointed that postage was extra otherwise may have snapped this up )

This has been discussed on the lotrplaza forums by myself and another member of the plaza, any views on the prices quoted and best way to sell?
