J R R Tolkien - The Hobbit
J R R Tolkien's The Hobbit
Harper Collins 1996 edition. Paperback. Illustrated throughout in both colour and black and white by Tolkien himself.
The Hobbit was originally published in 1937 and was altered quite significantly by Tolkien in both 1951 and 1966 to bring it more in line with The Lord of the Rings. This edition most closely resembles the 1966 edition. The five colour plates by Tolkien are absolutely beautiful (two I had never seen before) and there are also several black and white drawings and maps.
Condition: A little scuffed at the corners. Crease to front bottom right corner.
Dimensions: 7.5" x 5"
