I would have to agree, after the last films prices did not start to go down again until the end of the publicity for the films and that includes DVD's, etc.

As the films are being padded out to three, that is three years of higher prices for early Hobbits and probably early Lord of the Rings as well. A sellers market for a while.

From the Tolkien Society website

Tolkien in Lovewill be broadcast on Friday 3rd August, 11.00-11.30, telling the story of how J. R. R. Tolkien met and fell in love with Edith Bratt in Edgbaston, Birmingham. More information here.

John Garth is one of the people interviewed.

The Hobbit, The Musicalwill be broadcast on Saturday 4th August, 10.30-11.00. In December 1967 choristers at New College School, Oxford, performed an adaptation of The Hobbit. Some former choristers talk about their memories of taking part, with the songs performed by the present New College Chamber Choir. More information here.

Radio programs are available worldwide from the BBC, so I will update with the listen again links when they are made available.

He has taken out the old nonsense about how some dealers describe books as rare, when they are not, pots and black kettles come to mind.

The same seller is also selling a very rare 1971 Hobbit, who knew these were so rare, for $399 with no dust-jacket.
