Tolkien Farmer Giles Of Ham Hb Book

50th Anniversary Edition

Edited by Christina Scull & Wayne G Hammond


127 page (22cm x 14cm)(approx) hardback book published by Harper Collins 1999.


Dust-jacket reads:


This amusing tale by the author of The Hobbit is set in the Thames valley of England in a distant and marvellous past, when giants and dragons still lived. Its hero, Farmer Giles, is actually quite unheroic, but through good luck and the help of his dog Garm, his grey mare, and the magic sword Caudimordax or ( tailbiter)), he tames the wilt dragon Chrysophylax and wins great wealth.
Like The Hobbit and Roverandom, Farmer Giles of Ham was invented by J.R.R Tolkien to entertain his children, then grew and became more elaborate. It's final version is for readers of all ages who enjoy a good story told with imagination and wit.
This specail anniversary edition reprints the text first published in 1949, together with its origional illustrations by Pauline Baynes which Tolkien thought to be a perfect accompaniment to his tale. It also includes, now published for the first time, the earliest written version of the story and Tolkien's notes for a sequel.

Book in unread condition, dust jacket unclipped, excellent condition.
