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.

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!
