isn't a blank book with nothing on the pages just a sketchbook?

I mean it *could* be a publishers dummy, but equally it could be absolutely anything that just happens to have a sticker saying "HOBBIT" on.

I would have thought this item might be of interest to a collector, but would also essentially be worthless monetarily. Even with provenance showing that is a dummy for a particular edition, I can't imagine it being worth much...

I agree with you Stu,

this could quite well be a printer's sample (I guess to ask the publisher if this is the right paper and size and casing quality, etc.?) but it is really worthless to a collector as it stands. Anyone could slap that sticker in that corner with some typing on it saying it is whatever they want...

Now a publisher's dummy of, say The Silmarillion on the other hand...

...would be worth, I suggest, even less?
