London: Allen & Unwin, 1976.

J.R.R. Tolkien. De Luxe Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Near Fine / No Jacket, as Issued. Item #2413

An early issue of the Allen & Unwin De Luxe Edition of The Hobbit. This copy is the 1st impression, published in 1976, of the 1st De Luxe Edition of 1976, with the Tolkien line drawings colorized by H. E. Riddett. This book is housed in a custom slipcase as the original was missing. Bound in black buckram cloth, with gilt artwork on the front boards of Tolkien's 'Green Dragon" gilt stamped in red, silver & gold. The front and back boards shows a couple of tiny spots to the back, most probably from moisture that have removed the shine from the buckram. Gilt ruled compartments with Title, Author, and publisher on the spines. An lovely copy for the collector. No names, writing or faults noted in the book. Maps are bound in, rather than used as the endpapers. There are no bumps to the boards, with the few small spots to the buckram, while the slipcase features the JRRT Monogram to one side with one of his Dragons to the front. Overall a Near Fine copy of this wonderful book, housed in it's new custom black leather slipcase. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, Limited Editions, and odd bits of ephemera are available.
