Personally, would have put this in the "Interesting Ebay Auctions" thread rather than the "Wonders of".

Not surprised by the price at all (even in this condition). Not too often you come across this cover (and the first print with this cover).

This item is so bizarre I had to post it. Some of the Tolkien and LotR items they produce are just so strange...

I think that's where I differ from some collectors. I have no real desire to have ratty old copies of books just for completeness. Imperfect, yes, on a very hard to find or unimportant item, but ratbag books just make the bookshelves look scruffy (and mine are very neat!)

As a collector and someone who looks for completeness, you can only get the copies that appear, as far as as I can see this edition has not appeared at all on ebay or abebooks or any other auction site in the last 8 years.

I will probably not allow it to make my bookshelf scruffy, but am very happy to own a very poor copy of what looks to be the rarest copy of the UK Hobbit
