The Hobbit, J.R.R Tolkien, George Allen and Unwin, 1975 edition, 317pp

I currently have far too many books in my collection and so I am beginning to downsize.
As part of this downsizing I am selling this rare edition of 'The Hobbit'.

This is one of the world's most famous books and this has to be the definitive and most collected edition.
Printed from 1937, this particular edition is the last time that it was published in this form, featuring the iconic covers and colour illustrations together.
What makes this copy special is the impressive condition. The covers still maintain their brilliant blue-green colour and the pages are nearly all excellent, making it a real gem for collectors.
The colour illustrations were originally sketched by Tolkien and, combined with the wonderful story, makes for a great book for all ages.
A real gem.

Very Good condition
Very light wear to covers
Excellent inside except for stamp as photographed on page before title page.
A very nice copy.
