The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1938. First American edition, first state with a bowing hobbit on the title page, and the error of Chapter VII mistakenly titled Chapter VI. Bound in publisher's original buff cloth stamped in blue and red; lacking the dust jacket. Very Good with light marking on the front and rear boards, spine ends and corners slightly worn, spine toned. Several hinges slightly exposed. The front and rear hinge papers have come unglued and the binding is slightly loose, pages mostly clean throughout, with the very occasional light soiling. About six pages have had the top corner folded over by a previous reader, instead of using a book marker. A nice, untouched, rare, collectable book.Please, no offers, I am going to let the auction run.More photographs can be sent on request.
