THE HOBBIT

J R R TOLKIEN

FIRST IMPRESSION

Very Rare

I have for sale one of the most popular books of all time and the ultimate jewel in any Tolkien collection. This is a true first edition/first impression copy of The Hobbit published in 1937.

Only 1488 copies were bound and this was the only one to feature all black and white illustrations and none in colour. A truly great book and absolute pleasure to admire.

So to the book itself:

Externally it comes bound in its original green cloth boards with black titles and decorations. The boards are in fair– good condition with some handling marks. Spine is tanned and spilt at top with rolled/cracked edges and minor loss. Fractional lean.

Internally the pages are remarkable clean with just minor marks on a few pages. A neat previous owner name on front map. No foxing, no page tears.

So overall a super rare book and with the Hobbit films now in full flow this will make any Tolkien /Lord of the Rings fan very happy indeed. A good way to get a first impression Hobbit at considerable less than advertised elsewhere.

Included lots of photos to speak a thousand more words but if anyone wants more please let me know.

Will be sent well packaged by special post/international signed.

Started at a mad low opening bid - No reserve !   

Also listed as a buy it now seperately.
