The Hobbit by Tolkien 1942 Children’s Book Club edition. If you know your Tolkien, you'll know what this book is and why it is special. It is one of the 3,000 printed for The Children's Book Club in 1942. Condition described in full detail above. I have inspected every page and these are all the faults I can see. Please ask for more photos if you want to see any of the rest and I'll be happy to oblige but I'm at my limit of 12 for the listing and there are no more problems with this edition to report. The shipping price shown includes insurance cover to £1,000. If it sells for more, it will cost another £2.I will ship internationally but please ask for a price for your country. I will accept returns if you have a genuine complaint (I've missed a fault or the book is damaged in transit) but not because you've changed your mind or similar. In the event of a genuine return, I will pay for shipping both ways as per normal eBay policies. Ask all your questions now please!
