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!

This seems to be a first U.S. printing in a library rebinding (case and endpapers). The seller seems to have his own definition of "clean" pages.

Greetings,

Thank you for the suggestion. I did check that article. It was useful in identifying some of the first edition points that I mentioned, but it makes no mention of any edition like the one I have. The book I have is an anomaly. I think I need an expert who has seen lots of first editions. Thanks again for the post.
