quote - "Who knows where else Peter Jackson will take his films he Has done the Lord Of The Rings,now the Hobbit and there has been rumours that something will be done concerning this book after the 3 Hobbit films have been done."

- can we say 'dick'ead' on this forum?

I think I already mentioned this (post #920 here) previously gentlemen. (Although there was nothing gentlemanly about that language garm! )

Anyway...

Another classic a1greatwesternsales786 listing!

TOLKIEN: SILMARILLION - 1/3 HB - JOHN HOWE ILLUS DW - LORD OF THE RINGS / HOBBIT

Title would suggest 1st/3rd wouldn't it? Copyright page (below) also confirms this to indeed be the case. But check out the description:

TRUE UK
1ST EDITION
1ST PRINT
J.R.R. TOLKIEN
THE SILMARILLION
DUST WRAPPER ILLUSTRATED BY
JOHN HOWE

He has re-listed his 1966 Hobbit with 1975 on the copyright page, too many problems from this seller for me

Anyone noticed this auction?
This Hobbit has been advertised 3 times and every times it appears to sell it gets readvertised almost instantly afterwards!?!?!?
Wonder what is going on there then

I have noticed. Exactly the same photograph & same description. When it happened once I just thought the original sale had fallen through; non-payment, etc. But, as you say, it's now been listed multiple times, so payment failure seems unlikely. All in, a bit suspicious...

This seller has been on my radar for quite some time.

Here's another one:

J.R.R .Tolkien, The Hobbit 1st Deluxe, 1976 edition w/slipcase (eBay ID: frank55550_0)

This listed just three days ago (The seller has relisted this item or one like this), but it's unclear if this is the same copy. (EDIT: The seller has just confirmed it is the same copy, relisted due to non-payment.)

There is also another copy, just about to end, with a suspiciously similar photograph:

The Hobbit or There and Back Again Deluxe Edition 1976 1st Impression (eBay ID: lukysingh2013)

Nice books, but look at how similar those photos are below.

Yep
maybe we need to keep a list of these ?
Why would you relist within 1 days / 3days etc . There is no way the ebay resolution process has taken place thus these sellers have lost there fees ? Why would you anyone do that ?
It just doesnt sound right?
