Hi

I'm new to this forum and I hope you'll be able to help me.

Yesterday I found (and bought) in my local bookstore - The Hobbit Collector's Edition First Printing and would like to know the value of this book.

I have attached some photos

Any ideas ?

Thanks
Shac

There is one copy on ABE currently:

First impression of green boxed Hobbit

1st printing, Collector's Edition, green leather hardcover; in a green leather slip case. The book has red/gilt design on the cover and spine and green mottled text edges. The book has a name & date near the spine on the front endpaper, otherwise the book is in fine condition. The book has color and 2-color illustrations by the author. The cardboard slipcase has dulled surface staining along the cover edges on the label side, likely from moisture. The case has just a touch of wear at the opening corners, otherwise the slipcase is fine with a clean label and no internal damage.


US$ 143.50 plus shipping
