Another bargain (£10 book) from the same seller who seems to live in a dreamworld or possibly faerie, I think this is an eBay seller to avoid (£195 quoted).

£225 for a 7th printing (and does not look to be in that good a condition). It is a mystery to me how they arrive at these prices, I would have thought £10 would be a bit on the high side (even if it had the elusive blue sticker )

I think all the references that I can see in the papers are OCR (Optical Character Recognition) errors from the scanning. The computer is checking a dictionary for words which must include Hobbit and correcting to that.

I agree, a review must be in order, I'm sure a lot of Tolkein info has come to light since the last update, though the rabid boars that Chrisofylofax Tolkein rears to guard his fortress is confirmed and should be included.

Well spotted, I wondered if anyone would notice. For anyone who has not already seen it, here is his society.
