Is there something wrong with the colour on the "blue" photo, or did the 1987 UH LOTR Set come with two different slipcase variants? I've only previously seen the green one.

(No mention of there being two versions on tolkienbooks.net)

1967 Hobbit for Sale

I have a 1967 (2nd impression of 3rd Edition) Hobbit for sale. Reasonable condition. Price-clipped. Some foxing to the jacket (which is otherwise clean and bright), small strengthening repair to outside corner of inside front flap (probably silver-fished), browning/light foxing to page edges, etc. Silverfishing (presumably) to the GA&U logo on spine. No foxing to pages, no inscriptions, stamps, tape marks, etc.

I'll be sticking it on eBay if no one wants it here (reason for sale is that I happened across a near fine/as new copy of the same year, so this one [which I was happy enough with] is now a duplicate). I've never sold a duplicate book, but I think it is time I started getting rid of stuff I will stick in a box and never look at again.

If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll provide some more detailed photos.

The Book is in NZ. Postage to UK would be about 10 pounds (possibly a bit less).

It is printed and bound in China.

I don't see any mention of "dogfark" throwing eggs at you. I'm surprised, as judging by his FB page, he REALLY hates you Tolkien Society types :)
