About this Item

(1979). First U.S. edition, first printing. Blind pen impressions to both covers, else about fine, in white comb-bound illustrated cardstock covers; no dust jacket, as issued. One corner within is mildly soiled, but otherwise the interior is pristine, unused. Thirteen full-color glossy plates, removable for framing, within plain-stock calendar pages. The Brothers seem uniquely suited to their subject here, and though their backgrounds pay too much homage to Maxfield Parrish, their Hobbits are especially fine. Bookseller Inventory # 4683300
