J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit Rare 1938 True First 1st US Edition. This book is a true US first edition showing the bowing Hobbit on the title page (not the Houghton-Mifflin symbol) and the assorted errors. This book is in very good condition considering its age. The biggest defect is there is some spine separation in the lower 2 inches of the spine. There is a small pen mark under the first B on the cover and a pen mark running the crease of the front cover. The only marks inside the book are on the mark interior cover...there is a stamp of "3-8 1.19" and a sticker from Hudson's Bookshop. There is some slight discoloration and wear on the outside of the book. See pictures. There are NO missing pages. There are about 3-5 pages that appear to have been dog-eared at some point. Otherwise there is very little wear to the rest of the pages. No pages are torn. Please use pictures as a guide to the condition. I have attempted to document via pictures and in this description all obvious flaws. It is sold as is, there are no returns. If you need more info, just ask.
