THE HOBBIT, J.R.R.TOLKIEN, George Allen and Unwin, UK 1958 10th Impression RARE. Published in Great Britain by George Allen and Unwin in 1958, second edition, tenth overall impression. Only 4500 copies of this particular impression were published making this book quite rare. Specifics: Dust jacket - complete and in tact. Some very small rips and signs of wear along the top and bottom, particularly around the spine of the book but in otherwise good condition. Colours are good and unfaded. White detail is dull. Marks visible on the inner flaps, both front and rear, where a previous owner had taped the dust jacket to the book. Large blemish on the front inner flap, presumably caused by water damage. Hard cover - some slight signs of wear around the top and bottom of the spine. Marks on both the front and rear inside covers where a previous owner had taped the dust jacket to the book. Colour is excellent, no sun bleaching. Inside covers have some blemishes caused by what looks like water damage. Some other small marks are evident, please see photos for details. Pages - first page has been written on, please see photos. As stated previously, the book does appear to have suffered some water damage and this is evident on several pages. There are also some marks and blemishes throughout the book, fingerprints etc but nothing substantial. All pages are in tact, none missing, none ripped. If you have any questions or would like any additional photographs please contact me.
