The Father Christmas Letters, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Published by Allen and Unwin in 1976, this is the First Impression. A collection of illustrated letters from Father Christmas recapping the activities of the preceding year at the North Pole. The letters were written by the author to his children. When Tolkien's children sent letters to Father Christmas, he answered with elaborate drawings and detailed responses telling of the North Pole and all its inhabitants. These letters are an important part of understanding Tolkien's method of myth-creation but, moreover, they are gorgeous to look at. The book is in Near Fine condition, with the pictorial cover very clean and bright. No loss of color to the corners or edges, but shows some very minor rubbing, top of the spine lightly bumped. Pages are all clean and bright, no other markings or faults noted. The 1st printing of the 1st UK Edition, published in 1976. 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.
