I sorry but this seller should know better than to advertise this item as a 1966 or 1968 Hobbit, when in the pictures you can see it is a 1975 Hobbit.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOLKIEN-THE ... ction&hash=item1e7714f279

Some very confused quotes from the seller, seems to like Capitals for some reason.

"TOLKIEN: THE HOBBIT; UK 3RD EDITION 1966 HB DW - RARE LORD OF THE RINGS RELATED

TRUE UK 3RD EDITION 10TH PRINT

Publisher: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, 1968 (10th impression)
"

That would be 1975 (the 10th printing of the Third Edition was printed in 1975), where has 1966 or 1968 come from?

As Peter Jackson has moved back the last of the Hobbit films, to December 2014, I expect this to be further delayed until 2015.

Apparently some idiot is buying it - or something like it, from the same seller:

I bet PJ is trying to negotiate the film rights to this, as we speak.

It's really amazing to see how much it has risen in price just the last few years. My wife bought me Artist and Illustrator as a birthday gift in 2007 and she paid around 30 GPB. I thought HarperCollins kept reprinting it?

I think you are right, the book is still available and a long way from reaching over £1000

I'm sure that Findegil would have loved to have got this much for one copy of their book (£1012.51), but this is not a great bargain (though excellent book)

eBay Item #88246751

I'd love to know how many of these box-sets were made and sold, they do seem to have become very expensive on ebay with no real indication of rarity.

"I purchased this 2000 Millennium edition of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings from a bookstore specializing in rare books. However, as you can see, this is NOT a complete set! There should be seven books in a set, which spell out Tolkien's name. But here, I only have 5 of the 7---O, K, I, E, and N. "

I love the fact that he did not notice when buying, that books 1 and 3 were missing, and the slipcase

Surely you would notice that Book 1 (the start of the book) is missing

As I understand it you can buy these from thebookpeople.co.uk for £11.99 plus shipping, you could get 3 copies for the price of this ebay auction.
