Good luck with the sale. I think it is admirable to do what you are doing.

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.
