The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, 1st Edition, Later State

Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1938.

J.R.R. Tolkien. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings, Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Very Good Plus / Facsimile Only. A great copy of an extremely collectable book. This is the 1st Edition, 1st Impression, 3rd State, with the publishers device (flautist) on the title page. The maps are in the proper order as per the List of Illustrations. This book also has the half title page as called for, and has the corrected 'Chapter VII' on page 118. It features the 4 color and 9 black and white illustrations by Tolkien, all of which are present and in extremely clean and bright condition. The text block and maps are also very clean and bright, with a few odd stains to the edges of the textblock scattered thru the book. No names or inscriptions. Minor wear to the corners of the boards, rubbed thru to the top corners with a bit of fraying. The original cloth of the spine shows some wear to the top and bottom edges, and has considerable darkening to the cloth from exposure and soiling. The boards are soiled to the edges but overall Very Good. I have provided a one piece facsimile of the very scarce 1st Dustjacket, as well as a custom marbled paper slipcase to help protect and show off this lovely classic of modern fiction. 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. Item #1460
