Probably not worth anything at all with pages missing.

"Please Note: pages 1057 to 1088 are missing in this copy. This is a binder's error, the pages were not removed and there is no evidence that they are gone until one does a close collation of the book."

Not a 1976 Deluxe Hobbit.

eBay Item #331261790772

"This book is in near perfect condition, the only sign of wear is a slight fading of the authors name on the spine which can be seen in the photos.

The book comes without a box which has unfortunately been lost. There is no damage to any of the pages and the hard cover is free from dents/scratches.

This is a rare 1st edition collectors item, please see the link for an example of this edition on the jonkers rare book site: https://www.jonkers.co.uk/products/detail/productid/5185

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to see more photographs, happy bidding. Please note: There is a fixed reserve of £50 on this item.

Official description:

"Deluxe edition. First edition in this deluxe format. Black buckram with dragon embossed on upper cover in white, gold and red. Colour frontis, 7 colour plates and 6 black and white plates. Double page map"

I reserve the right to end this auction early/at any time.
"

The copy of the page below gives it away, not from 1976, the link to Jonkers appears to be a 1976 Hobbit, not the 4th Impression 1986 Hobbit as in the case.

That copy of the 1984 Deluxe Hobbit has been annoying me for the last couple of weeks in my eBay searches. I almost sent the guy a message suggesting he made his listing a bit more accurate, but couldn't be bothered in the end. I figured anyone would look at the copyright page picture before buying (even though it was only in "tinyvision" when I looked).

or if you did not get the bargain above in the three times it was sold, how about this, third time you sold it would be over £1000.
