By J. R. R. Tolkien.
Illustrated by Pauline Baynes
Houghton Mifflin Co, Boston, 1963. First U.S. edition
Illustrated | 64 pp. | 9" high x 5 & 1/2" wide
Pictorial hardcover in matching dust jacket. Black, white and orange illustrations.

CONDITION: Very good in a good dust jacket.
Dust jacket front flap is price clipped. Two 1/2" tears to upper DJ front cover at spine and fore edge. Chipping to DJ at upper edge of rear flap and spine. DJ is now housed in a mylar protective sleeve. Two small dents to bottom edge of boards. Binding is square, edges are crisp. No smudging, foxing, tears or dogears. No writing, bookplates or marks of any kind within. Clean and bright throughout.

The volume here offered is a first U.S. edition. Tolkien invented Tom Bombadil in memory of his children's doll, and wrote light-hearted children's poems about him, imagining him as a nature-spirit evocative of the English countryside.
