A great edition of this wonderful fantasy classic by JRR Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings. This is the first deluxe edition, published by George Allen & Unwin in 1976; ie it is the first impression of this edition. Bound in black leather, it has a multi-cloured dragon on the front. However, please note that this copy lacks the slipcase, hence the low opening price.


Can you change the description please on eBay?, this book is not "Bound in black leather"

I have also listed a first deluxe Hobbit from 1976, unfortunately without the box.

This book was listed for sale for years by an Oxfordshire bookshop. The owner asked me who SRT might be; he thought it might have been S.R.T.O. (Simonne) d'Ardenne, but I replied I wasn't so sure. (I'm pretty sure the signature isn't Tolkien's, either. Since when did he sign his name with only one 'R'?)

As it happens, a glance at the Scull-Hammond Chronology shows that Tolkien didn't become d'Ardenne's supervisor until 1932. So, it ain't her!

OMG that is so K00l!

I have never liked the hyperbole used by flatsigned.com. Though I am sure they have sold a lot of perfectly legitimate books, I have never had the slightest desire to bid on something they are selling.
