My comments were based on a statement in the latest edition of Collected Books concerning first editions of the Hobbit. It stated that some first edition library copies of the Hobbit have been seen without the end maps. I revised my ebay listing to state that. Thank you for the comment.

The author's name is wrong in the listing - it should be 'J.R.R. Tolkien'.

The book is an ex library book and possibly a library edition of the Hobbit - IT has NO front and rear maps I have researched this book to the best of my ability and have found that some library editions of the first printing of the Hobbit did NOT contain maps


A lot of libraries rebound books (these were not specific library editions). The Hobbit has the maps on the bindings and when the book was rebound the maps were disposed of with the original binding.

Greetings,

thank you for the comment. I have revised the item on ebay to clarify my meaning of clean - and changed the listing to the pages being fairly clean.

thanks!
