Condition: LOVELY CONDITION. THE HOBBIT - BEING PUBLISHED FOR YOUNG READERS - IS SELDOM FOUND IN COLLECTIBLE CONDITION.
1938: JRR TOLKIEN'S THE HOBBITA LOVELY COPY FOR THE COLLECTOR Offered here for the first time, just before Christmas, is a true first edition of The Hobbit. It is in the second state with the seated flautist on the title page. Chapter VII is incorrectly labeled as Chapter VI. This unrestored copy is in lovely condition. It has slightly toned boards (much less than most collectible copies) and internally it is clean. The front and rear end papers (the maps) look lovely and have no marks. There are no names or bookplates in the book and the pages are still bright. The color illustrations are lovely as well. There are no missing pages. This is a rare find in this collectible state! With a title that was often read by teens, and the fact that it is 85 years old, most copies offered for sale, at higher prices than this, are in very rough condition. This lovely copy is truly a rare gem and the best deal in the world right now. Please see my seller rating and bid with complete confidence. Shipping to the US is free (with tracking) and shipping to the UK is $50 (with no tracking). I can offer tracking, but the price does go up substantially. I am also currently offering a rare first issue of Charles Dickens's third Christmas story, "The Cricket on the Hearth." Super rare in first issue and less than $300! A first issue Dicken's Christmas story from 1845, for less than $300, so please see my other items. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
