Offered For Sale is the First edition Third Printing of J.R.R Tolkien's Farmer Giles of Ham! This book comes with what I understand is the correct third printing dust jacket, showing fourth impression and price of 8s. 6d. net, and is protected in a mylar jacket. The dust jacket has a promotional listing of The Hobbit on the back showing the correct Thirteenth Impression and price of 12s. 6d. net. The dust jacket is completely intact but has a few chips in the corners and is missing a small piece at the bottom of the spine. The book is in pretty good condition, the binding is tight and straight but has some foxing issues from pages 12-21 as shown in picture above. I have tried to take the best pictures I can to show exactly what condition the book is in, but please ask if you would like additional pictures! All offers will be considered so don't hesitate to contact me! I am also offering FREE SHIPPING, so the final bid is what you will pay!!! Anytime that I buy a book I like to know exactly what condition it is in prior to getting it in the mail, and I would expect nothing less from anyone else! So I have tried to note all issues or defects and accurately picture all aspects of every book I am listing. I believe a picture is worth a thousand words and will be more than happy to send additional pictures or answer any questions you might have, so please do not hesitate to send me a message! I have been collecting Tolkien books for years and have a decent collection of rare and first edition books that I have decided to sell in order to pursue other interests, so check out the other items I have up for sell! Also, I have worked very hard to take care of the books in my collection. I have placed a mylar dust cover on all of the dust jackets and have kept all of the books free of dust and in a smoke free environment. All the books I am selling are in the same condition that I bought them in, and the ones that came new in packaging were only unwrapped and placed on my shelf for admiration.
