hi folks. Im looking for a copy of the hobbit early 1st edition. 1st impression would be great but i cant see that happening. i'm really looking for a copy that i can have rebound and read. so it wont be in need of a dust jacket or great condition other than tidy pages.

any help or apoint in the right direction would be great. earliest i can find on ebay is a 5th impression at 1100 quids

thanks for any interest guys i will not be selling prints as i made this painting for enjoyment. I have a good printer that is very reasonable in price and will be making 20 signed numbered prints.

I think one of my favourite parts of tolkiens writting is the generous nature and kindness of his characters.

so keeping that in mind and with it being the old boys birthday recently it hardly seems fair to try and make a quick buck

about 5 of the prints have already gone.

once the prints are done i will post on the forum and take a few addresses of those interested

when its finished i will make a handfull of prints. i contacted pieter from tolkien library and told him i would send him a bunch to give out amongst the tolkien collectors he knows. i had alot of fun painting it and listening to the bbc adio books as i worked on it.

feel free to send me your address and i will send you a copy quite happily

I'm new to this site and am a big fan of all things tolkien.
i decided to do this painting on tolkiens birthday this year. I still need to add the border to it but thought i would put up a pic of it in progress.
hope you all like it
