The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen and Unwin in 1961. A beautiful copy of a very collectable book. This is a 2nd Edition, Thirteenth impression overall, published in 1961, in its original and correct non price clipped Thirteenth impression dustjacket. The book is in Near Fine condition, virtually without fault. The only fault is a bit of toning to the spine of the dustjacket, shows no staining, no chips or loss to the lovely brightly colored dustjacket. A slight bit of foxing to be found on the edges of the textblock. No previous owner's name or any other writing noted. The books cover is clean, bright only the slight bit of darkening to the spine. No bumps or bruises to the corners, no wear or fraying whatsoever. An early collectable copy that shows beautifully with the very nice dustjacket. Now housed in a custom black leather slipcase with The Mountain and Dragon design to one side, and the JRRT monogram to the other. 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.
