Thank you very much for your comments, Trotter.

That IS the book I was referring to, and you've certainly given me some food for thought. I have to admit, I found some unsigned copies and was staggered to see how much the asking price was for those and when I found THIS one I very nearly needed some smelling salts!

It is, sadly, the credit crunch that's made me think about selling the book in the first place.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Folks,

I've just joined, specifically so I can find out about, and hopefully sell, a limited edition of The Hobbit. It's the 1987 50th anniversary edition, bound in green leather and signed by Christopher Tolkien. I understand the first 100 copies were signed, and this is number 13. It is in unread condition.

The only other copy I have found online is available for purchase at just under £3,000 so, naturally, I'd be delighted if I could sell my copy for about that amount, although I'd appreciate any comments regarding how to value this particular book. I'm more of a reader than a collector, so this is all a bit new to me!
