I don't get it. Why is a scruffy ex-library '61 Hobbit up at 80 pounds? Makes no sense at all!

Thanks for the info, this seller won't ship to the US so I will keep looking. Its that thick slipcover that did it for me. Is this a full size or pocket edition? And will an ISBN be of help here or no?


It is the same size as the regular 70th Anniversary trade edition. ISBN is 9780007830626. I've personally never had much luck with ISBN searching.

Anyone have any info on this auction? This may be common as dirt but I haven't soon too many listings for this with a slipcase like this.


They actually come up pretty often and usually are fairly cheap. They were produced by HarperCollins for The Book People (a UK book club). The Book People sold them off a few years back for 5 pounds including postage (which was a bargain).

They are printed in China, but are pretty good quality - probably better than the trade edition, IMHO. The Slipcase is good quality, also.

I don't recommend this but if you want to get a signed, only by the editors and not the author, and numbered edition of this book then you can get it here, my recommendation is not to bother, they want £60 as well

Am I the only one who thinks they put zero effort into the cover, which is odd after writing so many words?

The buckram is more prone to delamination from the underlying board on the TT as well. Presumably there was just a different batch of materials used for some or all of the TTs, which is less durable. I can't see any other explanation - It is either process or materials.
