You are considering 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 ex-library, coming from a branch in Superior, WI. The library info that was glued to the inside covers has been removed and resulted in some damage. See pictures! NOTE: This rare find WAS in poor condition with the cover nearly off. It also has some torn, dirty, and taped pages.There are NO missing pages and all illustrations (including the 4 color plates) that are listed under the "List of Illustrations" page are intact. The book has been professionally repaired with a new spine and retained as much of the original cover as was possible. All the pages are solid, but of course- any taped pages are still taped. If you are looking for a perfect book, this is not it and please don't purchase. The price reflects the condition. See pictures and use them to determine condition. It is sold as is, there are no returns. If you need more info or photos, just ask. Even in this condition- still very hard to find...don't miss out! Free Priority shipping.
