Just to add, because it wasn't clear in the initial auction, that I can ship internationally and if there are people here from abroad who would be interested you can bid on the book.

On all of your advice I've moved the starting price down to £250. Just wanted to say thanks once again for all of your help.

Thanks for the advice. Yes, I tried to photograph all the damage I could find, as I imagined most of the buyers would be interested in that rather than the good things about the book. And no, I didn't pay much for it (£5 - as I say, the seller clearly hadn't recognised that it was particularly early and it was just in a box of secondhand sale books) so I reckon I won't make a loss, even if it doesn't make the price on ebay. If the ebay auction doesn't get bids, does anyone here know of good places to sell these things?

Hello all,

First time I'm posting here as I don't really know much about Tolkien etc. Anyway, I picked up a second hand early edition in London today from a second hand seller who clearly had no idea what it was. It's not in good condition but I've put it on ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tolkien-Hob ... ks_UK&hash=item35b9f32fa4 - As I'm so clueless about the value of these things, and particularly the effect that damage has on value, maybe people can fill me in here. I picked a starting price out of thin air, so I don't know if it's a massive over-estimate. Apologies for interrupting the normal forum happenings, but would really appreciate your help.

Jacob
