I should say that I only asked if the seller could change to international shipping. S/he then suggested to change to a fixed price, which I agreed upon -- the auction had no bids by then, IIRC. Strangely enough, the seller didn't relist the auction until some days later, when a bid had been placed. I thought it was kind of odd -- but what to do? Sorry for stepping on your toes, Trotter: it wasn't my intention!


You did nothing wrong, well done on getting the item


If it is any consolation, Trotter, I only paid GBP 2.40 for my copy with Dust Jacket, and there were no other bidders. I expect another copy will be along soon enough :)


Got one at last, double Stu's outlay though

I can't remember if this has been mentioned but the ISBN is different in the copy that I got from my original copy without dust-jacket.

BookPeople Hobbit (dust-jacket) ISBN 978-0-00-792704-3
HarperCollins Hobbit (no dust-jacket) ISBN 978-0-00-748730-1

I don't have any of my books at hand at present, so can't recall if this Tolkien letter (a clipping of which is pictured in the auction below) has been published anywhere before, or not.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS 3in1 Book 1971 Rare Edition with 1972 Tolkien article

Nice one! As I said, wasn't sure. My Letters is buried in a box somewhere...

Large print edition of The Hobbit - doesn't show up on eBay often, and has a good price and condition to boot.

I thought these library binding covers were interesting to document (since they are after-market, not really something I would collect.) Some other completist might be interested though, and someone might ask about these covers someday and I wanted a record of them.

It's been on and off eBay for some time. Appears to find no buyer (I'd say the price is a bit intimidating)!

Edit: speaking about the trolls (as we say in Swedish): the book is now sold!

Here's a strange one, what with the books in a slipcase being readily available:
