How much would you pay for a first edition of The Hobbit? Probably not $260,000 right? However, that’s exactly how much a copy of this incredible book managed to bring in at a Sotheby’s auction that was held in New York recently. The book’s worth is partially justified by the fact that it was personally inscribed by J R R Tolkien in old English. The inscription is actually a quote from one of the author’s unfinished works named Lost Road.

The inscription says: “There is many a thing in the West-regions unknown to me, marvels and strange beings, a land fair and lovely, the homeland of the Elves, and the bliss of the Gods …” In 2008, another edition of The Hobbit sold for $95,000, which is still a lot but nowhere near the price of this particular copy.
