Incidentally, here's the problem with eBay (& collecting Tolkien in 2014 generally):

Worldwide "hobbit" search: 73,411 hits.
Of this, only 7,249 (<10%) are books!
Over 40% of the items are classified under "Clothes, Shoes & Accessories"!

I just wish that they would cut out the middle-man and ship it straight to the land fill where it belongs.

A good portion of those books could just be pulped straight out of the bindery as well, given that far too many of them are probably the one-or-two-Tolkien-books-with-a-dozen-different-titles by David Day.

As a society, I genuinely think we have a massive problem with the constant cycle of worthless crap that we produce, using finite resources and creating pollution in the process.

Not sure why anyone would want a copy of The Hobbit signed by random (in this context) other people...

This is interesting, but also a bit of a "Wonders of" on account of who pays 750 quid for a book based on a single picture of the dustjacket?
