I will be VERY surprised if this book actually happens, now.

Same book, clearly same dealer (under two different names). Two different prices. Bizarre...

With good jacket restoration running at £750 + for significant work the former is not cheap for sure.



I think the problem with restoration is that the general opinion (that I have read online) seems to be that a restored jacket is worth the same (if reversible) or less than the unrestored. Anything beyond very minor restoration is skirting dangerously close to facsimile territory, anyway.

Seems better to just keep the jacket fragments protected for posterity and stick a facsimile jacket on the book to make it look nice in the shelf (or possibly some combination of the two -- with the facsimile behind the genuine jacket, depending on the state of the original).

This is already bid up to 1,020 pounds with 8 days to go. I simply don't understand the logic of people bidding the price up so far in advance - there is just no rational logic in using eBay in that manner any more.

Out of interest, what is the sense from anyone who has purchased Jacket-less 1/1 and 1/2 Hobbits (within the last couple of years) of what they are actually worth?

Its back with different wording !


I reported it to eBay shortly after it was relisted -- don't suppose it will achieve much, though.
