The Hobbit, or There and Back Again:
Published by George Allen and Unwin, London; 1979. First Deluxe Edition, second impression of the ever-popular classic tale, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again. This lovely book is in exceptional condition, beautifully bound in original black cloth with gilt design to the front board and gilt lettering to the spine. There is the slightest rubbing to the boards, but apart from this the book is tightly bound and inside the pages are clean and bright and beautifully illustrated, with all illustrations still present and appearing unread and as new. The book is housed in its original slipcase, which apart from some very minor bumping to the edges, is in excellent condition as well. In all, this is as near perfect a copy of the deluxe edition as any I have seen and would be the perfect addition to any Tolkien collection.
