The Hobbit, J.R.R Tolkien, George Allen And Unwin, 1955, 315ppKey feature: The accompanying letter is of huge interestAbout the book: For sale is a very interesting find. This is a rare 1955 seventh impression of The Hobbit.It comes with the original color frontispiece, endpaper maps and line drawings throughout.What makes this especially interesting is the letter that was folded inside.The typed letter appears to show text from the book but with various edits.There is also unusual shorthand writing, although I do not know what his refers to. Potentially an incredible find, and certainly a rare book nonetheless.Bids start at 99p. Condition report: In Fair to Good Condition See photos for accurate description.Covers are worn and mottledSome splitting to spine sides and bottom/ top Nice inside with light wear onlyA quite good copy Letter reasonably worn with one or two marks and some light creasing Top edge of text block retains original green tint Please note that I am happy to post worldwide but please contact me for a price first!On 16-Oct-18 at 16:47:07 BST, seller added the following information: Just to clarify, in the description I write that the book has green to the edge of the text block.As can be seen from the photos, this is the not the case, and was actually a part of a description for a different book.Thanks
