The Wonders of...

Having just spent a lot of money on what I think is a rare item, eBay often comes up trumps with what can only be described as What????

I guess one of the advantages of being a Hobbit is you can easily hide inside other things.

Seriously, though - you have to ask what the seller is thinking. And if the seller isn't the same person as glued the book inside the cover of a different one, you have to ask what they were thinking.

"Sir John Retcliffe was the pseudonym of the German writer Hermann Ottomar Friedrich Goedsche (12 February 1815 – 8 November 1878) primarily remembered for his antisemitism and the extent to which his fiction indirectly contributed to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

No idea why you would glue the Hobbit into his book

It's the Trek Con sticker that makes this worth an order if magnitude (plus) more than its siblings. I guess.

Its not that long ago that the Bodleian Library shop was still selling these old posters for the 1987 exhibition. Maybe they still are?

The standard 'Bilbo comes to the Huts of the Raft-elves' Poster is available from their online shop.
