Content: This is a 1974 edition of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

 

Dust-jacket reads:

 

Seldom has a story been as widely praised as The Hobbit-by parents, teachers, reviewers, and especially by children themselves. Within a few years its hero, Bilbo Baggins, has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals: Alice, Pooh, Toad... As with all such classics enjoyment burgeons at each successive reading, and grown­ups as well as children feel the potency of its spell.

 

It is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves, in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner on this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving, unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resource­fulness and skill as a burglar.

 

Encounters with giant spiders in the labyrinths of Mirkwood and the evil goblins that live among the roots of the Misty Mountains, the palpitating delicacy of Bilbo's conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and the grand climax in the Battle of the Five Armies, are supremely exciting incidents. But there are homelier moments, too: good fellowship and welcome meals along the road, laughter and song, and all `the freshness of an early world'.

 

The Hobbit is in itself a complete and marvel­lous tale which may be read to the very young, or given to children of any age to read for themselves. But it is also a prelude to The Lord of the Rings, in which the true significance of Bilbo's success in riddles and the nature of Gollum's `Precious' are revealed.

 

These books-and first of all The Hobbit-speak of the nobility and delight of life. They speak too of the triumph of good over evil, and reaffirm our secret hopes that, whatever the odds, right will be victorious over might.

 

Condition: Dust-jacket good condition: small pieces missing from corners, minor creases/wear to corners/edges, very minor foxing front top right-hand corner, very minor dulling to spine, clean & bright, price-clipped (inside removable protective sleeve). Hardback excellent condition; minor shelf-bumps top/bottom of spine & rear top edge, very clean & bright. Pages very good condition; extremely minor/barely noticeable foxing spots & very minor dulling when the pages are viewed collectively top-on (page faces unaffected), very small/neat ink name top edge half-title page, page faces excellent condition/very clean & bright.
