The Hobbitby J.R.R. Tolkien Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1938, 1st American edition, 1st State.Bowing hobbit on the title page. Chapter VII mistakenly titled Chapter VI. The front and rear maps are the wrong way around. Wilderland map appearing at the front of the book, instead of at the back.Bound in publisher's original buff cloth stamped in blue and red. Near Fine with the lightest of soiling to covers and the lightest of bumping to corners. No signatures, inscriptions or book plates. A very sharp copy of Tolkien's fantasy masterpiece, with illustrations by the author. The original dust jacket retains the vibrant colors; with losses, chipping and closed tears. It is also missing the front return flap and the rear flap is detached. The rare dust jacket is protected by a removable archival cover.
