Hello all,

First time I'm posting here as I don't really know much about Tolkien etc. Anyway, I picked up a second hand early edition in London today from a second hand seller who clearly had no idea what it was. It's not in good condition but I've put it on ebay - eBay Item #230752989092 - As I'm so clueless about the value of these things, and particularly the effect that damage has on value, maybe people can fill me in here. I picked a starting price out of thin air, so I don't know if it's a massive over-estimate. Apologies for interrupting the normal forum happenings, but would really appreciate your help.
