A $6,500 hobbit
The Hobbit that is, the book, as in a signed second edition recently sold on abebooks.com. You can see the list of the top 10 sales in AbeBooks for October here. Of course, there are copies of that book, and many others too in that site for far less; have a look sometime, it's an excellent umbrella site for used book dealers across the U.S. The library sometimes searches for out of print titles there.
