Agree Stu
Am sure Cumbrian Dwarf will be happy with book. Price not too bad The one before went for £200 although there was one a few months ago that sneaked through @ £30! - missed it unfortunately.

these copies do seem to easily suffer damage for sure

At £5 you will make for sure and a good find.

Id say if it doesnt sell either lower price or maybe offer it out on this forum. There are lots of collectors and maybe someone might be interested at right price , whatever that may be ?

Hello and welcome to the forum
This is a nice book but must admit personally not my favourite edition of the Hobbit. This being said still collectable and a handsome find indeed assuming you didnt pay a massive amount for it.

I think you will find the damage will put many hardent fans off as it looks like it really needs rebinding to me along with some work /clean to some pages. In itself rebinding is not every ones cup of tea but i would personally always see a book rebound and saved rather than otherwise.

Value? well the damage I would say will a have a big effect and for me I think your opening price is a fair bit optomistic especially as it would cost a bit to get rebound etc. But ebay being ebay you never know. Id say have a go but be prepared to reduce by quite a bit to get a sale.

Hope you get a good price.

You are mixing two elements here-Policy Proposal and Claiming.

When you take out insurance you can pick any amount you want and with exception your insurer will not ask for evidence.

However when you claim I am not saying they will always ask for evidence I am saying that they may and have the right under the policy and my knowledge of the industry confirms this.

Clearly the value is a factor and in your example, no they are not likely to ask for a receipt/photo evidence of a phone and something like furniture but if you claimed for an expensive book/ ring/ watch etc they will ask for evidence of its existance and ownership and thus my recommendation best be safe than sorry.

I am afraid in the world we live there is every reason an insurer would ask for evidence when we suffer £millions of fraud every year. That is the reason why they should - to protect all us honest folks premiums.
