Even more confusing. These aren't remotely rare.

Weird and expensive combination. This guy has loads of books in David Miller siipcases. The slipcases look nice, but they are - without exception - always too big for the books they house (really obvious in this case). One can only assume he measured on the large size when ordering. Like buying trousers when you know you are a bit fat.

Lot 63 (Books and Maps, 26th September 2017)

Tolkien, J. R. R.: The Hobbit or There and Back Again. George Allen and Unwin Ltd, London, 1937, First Edition, First Impression. With frontispiece and 9 plates or illustrations (all but one full-page), map endpapers in red and black by the author., PP310, (ii)publisher’s advertisements. Original Publisher's green cloth, lettered and decorated in dark blue. CONDITION: (Original un-restored condition). Covers little rubbed; inscription to front blank endpaper dated 1937; the frontis has been, crudely coloured which has resulted in light offsetting to title page; otherwise a very good and firm copy. (Only 1500 copies were printed of this first edition, first impression).


Sold for £3,700

Look away now if you are squeamish

I expect the buyer will cut the page out of the facsimile Hobbit and replace this page in the book, the paper would not look right if they did so, would not match the rest of the book.
