 The Hobbit: Or, There and Back Again: An Illustrated Edition

With text by J.R.R.Tolkin

Arthur Rankin Jr and Jules Bass, Illustrators

Harry N Abrams October 1977

First Printing

First edition with clear jacket in near fine condition. The cover is unfaded and the pages are clean with no inscriptions or markings. The book has been stored in original publisher's shipping box and so does not have the damage that often happens to these volumes, particularly to the hinges due to weight of book. The clear jacket has only light rubbing with no tears or chips. Because the jacket was so fragile, this edition was only printed one time. This is a very rare volume and important addition to your Tolkien library.

Beautifully illustrated hard cover with the band of adventurers climbing along the side of a mountain on the front, the dragon's hoard on the back and a white spine with black printing. The clear mylar dust jacket features the red dragon which is threatening the band climbing the mountain and has the dragon which is guarding it's hoard with Bilbo hiding behind a rock and white printing on the front and back. The covers are in almost pristine condition

The front and back endplates are black with an illustration of Bilbo Baggins. 220 pages that are crisp, clean, unmarked and uncreased with many, many illustrations from the movie featuring a large, 3-page fold-out illustration.  This book is quite heavy and I have seen them often with damaged spines. Because of this, I will be mailing well padded and boxed to avoid problems and to insure safe arrival.
