UK 1st Impression Hobbit For Sale - NYC Book Fair

Apr 22, 2022
2022/4/22 16:39:44 (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time, London, Dublin, Lisbon, Casablanca, Monrovia

I was at the New York City Antiquarian Book Fair last night for the preview and Lucius Books (York, UK) had a 1937 1st Impression Hobbit with a rather rough jacket for sale at $60,000…just in case anyone with some spare change might be looking for a copy.

(FYI, it could possibly be reserved by now…)

But is the one next to the LoTR books a letter from Tolkien? Do you have pictures?

It is this item, which we discussed when it was sold at auction to Lucius Books https://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/n ... t_id=22366#forumpost22366

The Lord of the Rings appears to be this set.

Yep, Trotter is right on the LOTR set and letter. The Hobbit they had didn’t show up on their website the last time I looked.
