I am new to this forum. I have in my possession a copy of the Hobbit and am wondering how much it may be worth?

The copyright page states:

Published by HarperCollinsPublishers 1999
Limited to a worldwide printing of 2,500 copies
This edition is based on the reset edition first published in 1995

First published by HarperCollinsPublishers 1991
Fifth edition (reset) 1995

Furthermore about 3 pages into the book one page has been "signed" (what i believe to be a printed signature) by Tolkien.

I have found a website with a similar looking book to mine and have listed it below.

See:

Hi 'the Don' and welcome
This is a nice book and looks good on shelf.
Whilst it was limited it was in fairly high numbers
I assume yours has a cloth type case rather than a faux leather?
this being the case they normaly sell on well known auction site for £150-£225
If I were selling it I would start bidding at .99p and attract interest or if not that brave say start at £100.
Maybe someone on here may make you an offer to save on the 10% fee?
Good luck
