Well, the cover looks fantastic. Is the spine as good? (That's always been the problem for me, the edges of the spine seem to wear so quickly and leave lines of white...)

You're right. I don't think there's a perfect Puffin Hobbit out there (unless anyone can show otherwise!).


Pretty close to perfect?

Hi gololo,

Unfortunately I do not have a spare copy (just the one), but if I ever come across another one, I will pm you.

Had a look at your website. Very nice collection of hobbits. Congrats!

I share your enthusiasm in collecting foreign hobbits but it is quite a task at times.

But it is just a run of the mill first edition! Just happens to include a little piece of paper...

Indeed it is I suppose and again most would share your view. However for me, I am always attracted to something which would make the book a little different from the rest.

Silmarillion review copies - very nice. And while not worth this kind of money would certainly command a higher price than a "regular" first edition copy (in my eyes) just like a review copy of bombadil would command a higher price than a "regular" first edition.

And again, I know my own views would not be shared by the majority in all probability.

Thought it as a reasonable price myself!! Khamul - gotta pay up if you want something a bit different that the everyday run of the mill first edition! Though I know many would share your thoughts in thinking it was a mad price.

Congrats Laurel!! I bid on the auction also.

Never seen another review copy before and no idea how many would have been sent out.

I did find a Proof Copy some time back but I had to pay quite a high price for that one.
