£102 for the last item, madness.

Would any one here ever consider this item for $225 USD?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-R-R-Tolki ... tible&hash=item1c2f213070

"Third edition fifth printing (19th impression overall) of J R R Tolkien's The Hobbit published by Allen & Unwin in 1970; hardcover with very good replica dust jacket, not price clipped (shows £1.75) in a book that itself is bright, square, and in very good condition. A good read and a great writer."

I can not think why you would want a replica dust-jacket on a 1970's Hobbit, as you can get them with original dust-jackets.

This copy should also not have a £1.75 on the dust-jacket, my current thinking is that £1.75 copies were probably 1972 copies. This copy should probably be priced as 25s/£1.25.



Late Hobbits like this seem to be going for silly money at the moment. I expect they will all be back to a tenner in a few years when the buyers all realise that there are literally millions of copies floating about. Right now we have a wealth transfer out of the mitts of the stupid going on.

Certainly these are out of my price range! And I agree that assembling a collection piecemeal over eBay (or other sources) should put you back a lot less, but isn't that always the case when considering buying from higher end dealers?


Agreed. I just think the price on these just seems excessively daft, even by dealer standards!

If anyone wants to pay 450 pounds, they can buy mine!!! I've got em all since the mid 80s still in shrink (or the card sleeves for the earlier ones).

Seriously, I think the price is a very high, given how much these generally sell for (maybe a tenner a pop).
