The very rare

The Hobbit Tolkien George Allen and Unwin 1965 1st Edition 15th Impression

snap it up for $2999

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HOBBIT-2nd- ... tible&hash=item4ab6ee5d04

The title does admit it is a 2nd edition and has some tape on the dust-jacket.

This could be a great investment as the movie of the Hobbit is about to be released later this year, and prices of the Lord Of The Rings went up after the movies relating to those three volumes. or in this case a very poor one.

Douglas Anderson is no longer involved with Tolkien Studies.

The end has been reached. I have ceased all involvement with Tolkien Studies. Things could have been otherwise, but under the new climate of Mordor-styled publishing, I don’t fit in. Like the scientists in the articles referenced above, I must question the value of putting a pay-wall between a scholarly journal and its audience. It certainly doesn’t help scholarship by diminishing access to a journal solely in order to fill the coffers of its publisher and distributor. The old model is broken, and there needs to be a new one. A fair one.

The Estate are not going after people using Shire in their name but Enterprises (Saul & Co) are, FITS look out.

Nearly everyone in England, Scotland, and Wales have lived in an area called a shire for at least 1000 years

Another bizarre statement from FITS

"So few original jackets exist it was thought they didn't produce any due to paper shortages."

My copy has a dustwrapper, as did every copy that was made.
