As I have far too many books, I am currently selling a range of books for more space.

The Hobbit, J.R.R Tolkien, Unwin, 1966 first edition in this form, 278pp

Here is a unique copy of The Hobbit.
With stunning Art Deco binding custom fitted and the original 1966 edition of the hobbit inside, 
this book makes for a very rare buy.
This edition is highly prized by itself but in fine binding that mimics an antique book, this book is far rarer.

A very interesting and highly attractive copy.

In Good condition
(Please note that this re-bind was created by an amateur and shows signs of a rustic approach)
Covers are good with light wear
Inside is good with original Hobbit book glued using book-binding glue to inner covers, retaining original gilt front/ endpapers
Some overhang from covers, scent of glue and wrinkling - partly from patter of over
A very unique and attractive edition.

I'm happy to post worldwide but please contact me first to find out postage prices.
