Yep, that's worthless. Even decent 4th editions shouldn't be more than a tenner. They are two-a-penny. The epitome of "Not Rare".

Wonder how much they would try to sell an unsigned copy for?

Peter Harrington has always been on the (very) expensive side. I think he is aimed at a different kind of clientele than most of us.

Take £1000 copy of The Hobbit, put an abysmally chopped down facsimile jacket and ask for $12,500, whilst failing to mention that the crappy jacket is a facsimile. Rare Book Cellar never fails to disappoint. Hopefully no one is stupid enough to buy it.

Edit: When you look close up at the green on the boards, looks to me like it has been painted/stained in places where it is worn.

So many wonders here. First of all, not a 1st Edition.

Ummm...1000USD for a 2nd Hobbit with no dust wrapper?

Someone really paid $499 for this pre-order, I feel bad for them.
