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?

Selling amounts have certainly gone up massively in last few months for any hobbits with/without jackets. The last 2 1961 unjacketed copies on ebay went for £47 & £162 in UK and USA respectively so there is inconsistentcy Jlong refers too.

There is 1 on ebay at moment (already at £26 and days left)

My guess would be £70 if in reasonable condition. This being said i wouldnt pay this sort of amount and would even pause if it had a jacket.

Good luck - now until Christmas is time to sell I say.
