The Children of Húrin by J.R.R. Tolkienedited by Christopher Tolkien *Signed by Christopher Tolkien & Alan Lee* *2007 First US Edition / First Printing* - Hardcover with dust-jacket; published by Houghton Mifflin For sale is the First Edition of The Children of Húrin written by J.R.R. Tolkien and edited by the author’s son Christopher Tolkien. Published by Houghton Mifflin, this is the first printing from 2007. 550 copies of the 1st Printing were issued with adhesive book plates signed by Christopher Tolkien and Alan Lee. 450 of these were sold at a release day event in New York City (Barnes & Noble, 555 5th Ave.). Provenance: I was at the event mentioned above and received the book, bookmark and poster all together. Please send me a message to request any additional detail/information. Bonus items: 20” x 15” poster (has edgewear) and bookmark originally sold together with signed book (if you do not want these items the book's price can be lowered by $25). Please note: the poster will not be included with orders outside the U.S. due to a proportionately high shipping cost. “The first complete book by J.R.R. Tolkien in three decades--since the publication of The Silmarillion in 1977--The Children of Húrin reunites fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, dragons and Dwarves, Eagles and Orcs. Presented for the first time as a complete, standalone story, this stirring narrative will appeal to casual fans and expert readers alike, returning them to the rich landscape and characters unique to Tolkien.” For more information see: www.tolkienbooks.us/me/coh/the-children-of-hurin-2007 For more collectible Tolkien books please see my other listings at: TolkienBooks See pictures and description for condition and please feel free to ask questions and/or request more pictures.
