£102 for the last item, madness.

Would any one here ever consider this item for $225 USD?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/J-R-R-Tolki ... tible&hash=item1c2f213070

"Third edition fifth printing (19th impression overall) of J R R Tolkien's The Hobbit published by Allen & Unwin in 1970; hardcover with very good replica dust jacket, not price clipped (shows £1.75) in a book that itself is bright, square, and in very good condition. A good read and a great writer."

I can not think why you would want a replica dust-jacket on a 1970's Hobbit, as you can get them with original dust-jackets.

This copy should also not have a £1.75 on the dust-jacket, my current thinking is that £1.75 copies were probably 1972 copies. This copy should probably be priced as 25s/£1.25.

Late Hobbits like this seem to be going for silly money at the moment. I expect they will all be back to a tenner in a few years when the buyers all realise that there are literally millions of copies floating about. Right now we have a wealth transfer out of the mitts of the stupid going on.

Sorry about meddling with that previous post Jlong --I was just seeing if I could throw up an image of the item. It's a little large, but compressed it was tiny. Crazy prices though. You could literally have picked up dozens of 1970's impressions a few years back for pennies --& look at the prices now!
