J R R Tolkien - The Hobbit - Hardback 1959 2nd Edition

Published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd. 1959. 2nd Edition, Eleventh Impression.  Hardback with dust jacket. 

Book has excellent tight square binding & unmarked covers with slight ageing to the spine end. Internally clean with no inscriptions. Illustrated in colour and black & white by the author with maps to endpapers. Original dustjacket is unclipped with some very small tears, mainly on the spine ends. Clean undamaged flaps. 
From the personal collection of my late Aunt & Uncle, academics who looked after their books. This was bought new in 1959.

I am also selling all 3 books in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers & The Return of the King) all 1st Edition (1957/59) -  please click on "See other items". 

Free UK postage. Please contact me first for a postage quote for any other country.  Cash on collection would be perfect & would allow inspection by the buyer.
