Agree. Whilst I would like this book, I like you Jlong think if i was to spend best part of £2k assuming it goes for that I would rather buy a letter, something signed or an older Hobbit.

Different people /different priorities i guess

As a matter of interest has anyone got a copy of this verses book already?

Yep its flying for sure. I was going to have a go but for this book too much for me.
The last one went for £1999 in April 2010 so who knows.
My guess will be £1400 !

The ironic thing is a copy was on Abe a few months ago for £200 and sold pre notifications going out!
DARN DARN DARN - o well !

Play the waiting game I'd say if you have the patience. You will with a bit of lady luck find your wants for less costs. Will film affect values- no doubt it will but whether these high prices hold will depend on general economy I guess.
Re the 87 hobbit I can only recall seeing 1 for £500 about a year ago. There was a question over condition I recall. Missing this copy myself.
My big regret was I was offered one of these in the early 90s for a couple of £100 but at time couldn't afford it- o well.

Good luck in your search

This is a nice book to be sure and one which rarely comes on ebay (2 in last 2.5 years).
What is a reasonable price ?
Good question and my answer would be 'the price you are willing to pay'

Like most of us on this forum I really wanted a copy and I knew I would have to pay a fair bit. Fate worked for me a little and whilst some would say blimey how much! I was happy to pay the asking price and I am sure had I not someone else would have done.

I am not sure what these were originally sold for? Anyone know? I guess £250 ?

The problem is hardly any ever come onto an open auction market so the current market value is a bit of a guess and if one came up tomorrow for £750 buy it now i am sure it would be snapped up.
Is it worth this sort of money - who knows?
