The Hobbit US Collectors Edition, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published in 1973 by Houghton Mifflin. This copy is still sealed in the original shrinkwrap, with no scuffs or markings noted. Green leatherette with red and gold foil stamping in matching slipcase with green, black and gold label, illustrated with full color plates, and monochrome line drawings, maps, top edge stained, complete with all plates and unabridged. The photo's of the opened book are taken from a similar copy as this one is still sealed. It is possible that this is a Book Club Edition as there are no markings to indicate either way to the sealed exterior. One bump along the edge of the entry to the slipcase, did not break the plastic, but indented the edge a bit. Digital photo's are 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.
