Pauline Baynes. 1st Edition, Hobbits, Lord of the Rings, Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #2219

Farmer Giles of Ham, The Rise and Wonderful Adventures of Farmer Giles, Lord of Tame, Count of Worminghall and King of the Little Kingdom, by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is his second major published work, preceded only by the Hobbit. Published in 1950, printed in Great Britain, this is the 1st impression of the 1st Edition, published by Houghton Mifflin. A Near Fine book, illustrated by Pauline Diane Baynes, the exterior boards show no soiling or bumped corners. The interior textblock is clean & bright, no previous owner names or any other writing. This was her first commission for Tolkien, who famously said of her Farmer Giles work, that it had "reduced {his} text to a commentary on her drawings". The book has a tight binding, no foxing or offsetting to the endpapers. There is some light fading to the spine of the original dustjacket, which is not price clipped. Near Fine condition, with some rubbing to the folds, along with a few minor closed tears to the edges, the largest one, about 15 mm's, to the top rear spine fold area. The blue and orange colors are bright and clean, no spots or soiling, just the minor fading to the spine. Textblock is clean and bright, without any foxing, no names or writing. Features two color plates by Pauline Baynes, as well as being illustrated on almost every page with her line drawings. Highly collectable, this is a lovely copy for any Tolkien fans collection. Housed in a custom blue leather slipcase, featuring the line drawing of Chrysophylax, gilt stamped to front and the JRRT Monogram to the rear. 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.
