That is because eBay is usually inconsistent. The book could sell for even more than that or possibly even less.

What would you estimate that it would sell for? :)

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.

I think in December is really going to be the ideal time to sell.

I would have to agree, after the last films prices did not start to go down again until the end of the publicity for the films and that includes DVD's, etc.

As the films are being padded out to three, that is three years of higher prices for early Hobbits and probably early Lord of the Rings as well. A sellers market for a while.
