1971 1st/4th UK edition filled with Pauline's wonderful illustrations. No jacket as issued, scuffing to edges, cover colors faded to pink. Note the 4th impressioj has a white border around the cover edge while the 1st does not. Minor damage to some pages, please ask for details- markfaith@festivalartandbooks.com Importantly, signed by Tolkien. This is a unique association copy signed by J.R.R. Tolkien to his nurse Mrs Beaton who was caring for him. There are very few signed book copies this late as Tolkien was quite fed up at this stage with being bothered by fans. The distinct pen style and wear and tear to the book led it its authenticity of this unique association copy, thus such a high price. If you are looking for truly unique items, please contact us or if you have unique items for sale. We buy rare Tolkien books and art. www.festivalartandbooks.com
