RARE Tolkien THE HOBBIT 1978 GUILD PUBL Leather & Gilt

"A FEW WORDS ON TOLKIEN COLLECTIBILITY...

I have been collecting Tolkien books for over 30 years and it really galls me to find people selling items for ridiculous prices claiming they are "rare" or "highly collectible"; and what's worse is, naive people are paying it~!

Another couple of new books.

English and Medieval Studies
Edited by Norman Davis and C.L. Wren

"Presented to J. R. R. Tolkien on the Occasion of his Seventieth Birthday, with dedicatory verses by W. H. Auden, this book was originally released in 1962 by Allen & Unwin. I believe it is wonderful to see that now after 50 years HarperCollins honors this moment by reprinting this wonderful book. The most amazing thing is that the book actually carries "George Allen and Unwin Ltd" on the front of the jacket, and I don't see any mention of HarperCollins on the front - so we can probably expect a perfect reproduction of the original first edition. Since it is now long out of print it is nice to see that HarperCollins reprints this book and making it available to a wider public."

Exploring the Hobbit
Corey Olson
"With the blessing of the Tolkien Estate to back his work, he will be writing a book called Exploring The Hobbit. It’s being published by Houghton Mifflin, and is due to grace bookstores come September 22, 2012. That date holds special meaning for Tolkien fans, as it’s the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien."

If any of the failed bidders do not get this wonderful book, they are welcome to my copy at the same price

(I'd buy another copy for a fraction of this price)

This is not the original slipcase, looks like David Miller's slipcase instead, but why not state that in the description

(Very good slipcase but seller should state not the original)

Starting Price £1,250.00

1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The true 1st Edition, Allen and Unwin 1963 Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". The books are housed in a slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "triptych" artwork. This cloth bound slipcase is particularly sturdy and in excellent condition. This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and original silk bookmark sewn in. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to publishers records, 1000 or less published, some rumours say only 300 sets produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson. These sets very rarely come up for sale. minor marks to book covers and pages edges. Previous owners name top FEP of the Two Towers and Return of the King and on page with the Lord of the Rings poem in the FOTR. There is also some ink inscriptions in the FOTR and ROTK volumes on the FEP/inside book cover/BEP. Maps present in FOTR and TT, not in ROTK. Interestingly the previous owner to whom the inscriptions are written by is the costume designer for the famous Benny Hill t.v shows and his name was Christos panoupolus, whom passed away only last month.
