I have had a bit of success with UK Hobbits recently

Every impression from the 3rd Printing of 1942 to the 24th (10th Impression of the 3rd Edition in 1975), apart from one

I only collect Hobbits with Dust-Jackets and they have to be not priced clipped, hence why no 1st or 2nd Printings, a small number of editions (three) need to be replaced because they do not fit my criteria.

I've been working on this set for a long time and have just completed it, getting the 6th printing in the mail today (I've been really zeroed in on Hobbits lately!). I still need a couple variants (for 5th/7th printings) but essentially this a complete set of the second edition U.S. Hobbits. I love how these look without their jackets! So I hope you'll forgive me for showing them off

Congratulations, Berelach
That's one small step for mankind, one giant leap for you.. :)))

Beautiful Berelach. Congratulations on completing the set.

Also, the colours remind me of the new deluxe HC editions.

You guys who have been collecting Hobbits lately, what can I expect to pay (with a little patience) for a g/vg US 5th printing?

Same question for a UK 3rd edition (any printing).

Thanks!

Not sure about the US 5th, but UK 3rd editions, anywhere from £20 - £40 for a decent jacketed copy.
I just found out about this amazing thread and the word amazing does not do justice!

Thank you very much for sharing the collection!

Someone on reddit asked to see my collection, and easiest to load it here...

I think this is about half of my collection (which is a lot smaller than most of the other collectors on here). The rest are boxed -- I boxed up a good 50 or so a few weeks back, and there must already be at least 150 boxed before that. I only use two book-cases, so stuff just gets moved off periodically to make room, and I didn't bother unpacking a lot of stuff when I moved to NZ...
