By no means a perfect copy, and I'm guessing the inscription is probably embarrassing (It is so annoying that sellers so often mention an inscription and then specifically avoid showing it). Still, might end up being a cheaper copy for someone who simply wants to complete their set.

These are an odd one. Half the time they go for a tenner (that's what I paid for mine) and then the other half seem to go for daft money like this. Considering the book is a just a cheap and nasty paperback with hard covers, a tenner seems like the right end of the price spectrum....

A very rare 1966 UK Hobbit, never seen one before priced at 95 pence in decimal currency.


So a grubby looking nineteen-seventies Hobbit ISN'T worth 50 quid?? Who would have thought it?

Seriously though, there is a lot of crap like this on eBay at the moment, and less good stuff than I have ever seen.

I think building a decent collection from scratch would be borderline impossible at present. I wonder of it will improve once the final "Hobbit" abomination has been and gone from cinemas and the "temporary" collectors get bored and move onto the next fad?

Note that this is a private auction, so I would very strongly recommend that any bidder only use a bid sniping service and not eBay proxy bidding, as there is an *extremely high* risk of shill bidding on private listings.
