Cool item purchased at an Estate Sale. I have only seen (1) other of these and it was unframed and torn. Rare Poster-Tolkien-'Drawings For The Hobbit'-50th Anniversary Show,Oxford 1987 Authors home, Bodleian Library, Oxford-Poster approximately 23.5"x16.5 -FRAMED 25" x 17.5". Information found on poster:Author of the Hobbit and the LOTR trilogy, J.R.R. Tolkien taught at Exeter College, Oxford and the writing of these classics was done there over the course of his real career as a mathematics professor, so there is a certain sentimentality around this exhibition of the original drawings for the book that began it all, 'The Hobbit', on the 50th anniversary of it's publication. The library gift shop even carried the poster for a while but no more and it becomes more difficult to find every year. Poster looks in excellent shape, frame also excellent shape. Very small tear on back of picture/frame-see pictureSee pictures, ask questions, sold as is. Thanks for looking!
