London: Allen & Unwin, 1963. J.R.R. Tolkien. 2nd Edition. Original Cloth. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen & Unwin in 1963. A beautiful copy of a very collectable book. This is the Fourteenth impression (overall) published in 1963, in a correct original Fourteenth impression dustjacket. The book and dustjacket are both in Very Good Plus condition with almost no loss to the dustjacket. The only fault is a dark smudge to the white portions of the front panel of the dustjacket just above the center mountain and the sun outline. The maps show no foxing, clean and bright. There are a few tape ghosts to the first blank page, probably from the removal of a bookplate. The dustjacket is only lightly soiled, not price clipped, with almost no edgewear or rubbing noted. The books cover shows some tanning to the edges, with a small amount of fading, mainly thru the white portions of the spine. The corners are not bumped, and show no wear or fraying whatsoever. No previous owners name or any writing noted. A wonderful collectable copy. Housed in a custom dark green leather slipcase stamped with the Dragon design to the front boards, with the JRRT monogram to the rear panel. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions.
