Tolkien The Hobbit 1946 + Dust Jacket Very Rare (lord Of Rings Related)



THE HOBBIT

J R R TOLKIEN

1946 – First Edition

OVERALL FOURTH IMPRESSION

VERY RARE

GEORGE ALLEN AND UNWIN

I have for sale a very early and much collectable edition of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. First published in 1937, this copy is a fourth impression from 1946 and includes the very rare original dust jacket.

It comes bound in its original green cloth boards with black titles and is in good condition and solid throughout considering it is now heading on 70 years old!

The slightly leaning boards have maintained their colour well as shown and just a little rubbing on corners/edges. Internally the book is clean and printed with war economy paper. Unusually there is NO inscription. A little foxing to maps and front few pages but no tears or any other damage noted.

What is special about this sale is the book includes the original dust jacket despite having a rough life! At one stage the jacket has suffered numerous severe tears and knocks. Only the front flap is unaffected. The original ‘selotape’ has been removed and archival tape used to strengthen. Regrettably there are still some pieces missing though a good restorer could help further I am sure.

So overall an early copy of The Hobbit and one that is rarely seen at a reasonable price.

To give everyone a chance at offerding I am going to start at a mad .99p with .

Any questions of course please ask. Please can I ask the winning buyer to arrange payment within three days of the sale completion. Any overpaid postage will be refunded once dispatched.

Due to its value I will only send this item special delivery thus providing full insurance protection both for the winning buyer and myself.
