eBay really is a total toilet.

A real eBay bargain, £150 for a 1962 Lord of the Rings which "looks like a new book".

Ok, but it is only one volume of the book (The Return of the King) and it has no Dust-jacket but does have Unwin Hyman on the spine, which makes it more likely to be from 1987 than 1962.

IIRC, it was one of my 1950s Hobbits. The name of the bookbinder is Ian Barnes; he owns and runs Temple Bookbinders in Oxford - v. reliable guy.

ps - I'd be happy having Ian work on any of my 1950s Hobbits - or any of my 1940s Hobbits - or any of my 1930s Hobbits...

I think you are right and since i last looked at the auction it was 210, now its 365 so its too expensive for me (I'm a student).

My dream/goal is to have first editions of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, i also feel like they should be in near fine/fine condition or as good as possible basically. Though i realise this will mean spending alot of money!

What was the book though?
(Don't tell me one of your 1940 copies of The Hobbit!)
Anyone else any advice on loose gatherings/leaves? (--not that I don't appreciate your advice garm! )
