J. R. R. Tolkien

 

 

Title

 

THE HOBBIT

 

 

Publication details

 

Houghton Mifflin, Boston, USA, c1987.

 

 

Format

 

Publisher's green leatherette, red and gilt decoration, in matching slipcase.

 

Condition

 

Book is very presentable, clean, tight and sound.

No inscriptions.

Slipcase is very good, label with slight rubbing and soiling.

 

 

 Notes

 

A good example of the Houghton Mifflin 'collector's' deluxe edition.

A most attractive edition for the bookshelf. Excellent clear type, good reproductions of the plates, binding thoughtfully designed. 

Bears a copyright date of 1966 but is actually ( I think ) 1987, or thereabouts - there were several printings. Please see photo of details, ISBN etc.

The distinctive illustrations are by the author. 

 

 

There is no 'buy it now' option, sorry.

 

No reserve.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
