Here is a very rare treat indeed!  An extremely scarce and unique edition of Tolkien's The Hobbit.   It's the "deluxe edition" 2004 from Harper Collins.  It is still in its shrink wrap and is therefore mint.
 This is the only copy of this rare edition we have ever come across STILL IN ITS SHRINK WRAP....and we won't open it. That will be YOUR decision to make!
It's just a rare find in rare condition for the serious Tolkien collector.
