I think it is now as clear as mud, response from the seller via email, why have they included pictures of a rebound copy??


Thanks for the info on the signature.

Yes, I originally bought the book through a reputable book locator who I believe found it at the Tolkien bookshelf based on the signature sheet in the book.

The item text is word for word (pretty much) for how it was listed when I initially purchased it.

Yes, the cloth is in the original binding based on information I received prior to purchasing the book (see item text).

The book has been well maintained and must have originally been bought for collection purposes based on its condition. Of course I am speculating here as I don't know the previous owners but just looking at it, while you can see its an older book it is not weathered or worn looking.

I hope this helps. Note my return policy if you are not happy with it.

thx
Dave

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hobbit-First- ... tible&hash=item415c811495

The Hobbit - First Edition Second Impression 1937

Starting price $3400 Buy it now $5600


Additionally, you will see in one of the pictures a note with JRR Tolkiens's signature dated June 1973. Now I have never had this signature verified but it is possible it is his true signature as Tolkien Died September 1973. Eitherway, this comes with the book.


or it was produced on an Inkjet by dunedain
