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.

Aaaaaarrrggghhh
I brought the Verses but guess wot? Went through the checkout etc to then only get an email cancelling the order. In fairness to the seller he did email me and advised that regrettably this book and the other one had both just been brought by one person.
So going back to a previous thread clearly Abe allow multiple buyers to go through checkout? Suppose this makes sure book sells but it's a bit of a odd way if doing business selling an item twice?
Neverind maybe next time!

Following on from this great article I was by chance on abe books earlier and spotted a book right at top of a search under 'Recently added'

I had been after a copy for a while and brought it straight away as a good price.

Some 20 minutes later I received an email as it was on my watch list advising it was for sale?

This suprised me but maybe thats computers for you?
However it may offer a possible explanation re recent book offered which started the artice! ie if i had brought this one again I bet it would have let me all through checkout etc even though actually sold.

Interesting?
