Fifty New Poems for Children an Anthology : Basil Blackwell Oxford Publisher: Basil Blackwell, Oxford Publication Date: 1922 Binding: Hard Cover Edition: 1st Edition / 1st Impression Item Description: Basil Blackwell, Oxford, 1922. Hard Cover. 1st Ed. 20 x 14 cm., 63 pp. no date printed in work [1922]. Although the book does not give a publication date for the 1st Impression, 1922 can be assumed. It contains pieces published in 1922 and the British Library catalogues also list it as 1922. The collection includes 'Goblin Feet' by J. R. R. Tolkien (misspelled Tolkein several times). Dark charcoal paper covered boards with printed paper title label on spine, and title label laid onto front with woodcut by C. T. Nightingale of a pixie throwing apples down from a tree. CONDITION. Very Good. Overall tight binding and text in good condition internally. No marks, underlining or torn pages. Charcoal paper over original boards with black and white woodcut by C.T. Nightingale posted on front board. Paper edges rough cut. Housed in a removable Brodart protector. "Goblin Feet" was published in Oxford Poetry 1915 and subsequently reprinted in the anthology offered here. It represents Tolkien's first work published in book form. This book is not recorded in Hammond’s bibliography. This is the First Edition of "Fifty New Poems for Children," which was published without a date; subsequent editions (or impressions) have 1924 (2nd ed) or 1929 (3rd ed). A wonderful and prized find for the Tolkien enthusiast and collector. I have some other very scarce and collectible Tolkien books listed. Win more than oneauction and save on shipping. Although my listings indicate that I am only shipping to North America, I am open to shipping to Europe but please message me for a shipping quote first as the shipping rates are for North America only. All shipments are tracked and insured through Canada Post.
