Item Description: HarperCollins, London, 2016. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: Slipcase New. New hardback anniversary gift edition in a slipcase. This sumptuous gift edition includes a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, the only edition where one can now read the original version of the story before Tolkien re-edited it to become the one enjoyed by readers since 1951. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937, with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design, nearly a dozen black & white illustrations and two black & red maps by the author himself, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted shortly afterwards. History was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter 5, when Tolkien decided in 1947 to revise the text to bring it better into accord with events as they were developing in its 'sequel', The Lord of the Rings - mean that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. This special printing reprints the first edition, so that readers of all ages - not just 'children between the ages of 5 and 9', as Rayner Unwin famously declared in his report on the original submission - can finally enjoy Tolkien's story as it originally appeared. 312pp. Like most of our stock, we have this book at a lower price in our shop premises if you would like to call in. Size: 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 306827

The book features the original dustjacket with the Mountains and Dragon design by the author. The dustjackets has a couple of closed tears, one to the upper front panel and another to the upper rear panel, no loss noted. A bit of rubbing and wear to the top of the spine, some minor color loss at the flap folds. The boards show no soiling or marking, no shelfwear to note. The text block is clean, without foxing, a previous owners name to the front pastedown, hidden by the dustjacket flap. No other markings, no bumped corners, clean boards, virtually without fault. The dustjacket is not price clipped, and has no markings. A beautiful clean copy, one of the copies with the dark reddish brown boards stamped in blue, that are very hard to find. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien. The maps are in excellent condition, with the red and black ink still showing clear and bright against the endpapers. Both maps have no foxing, no marks, or previous owners names.

Stated 8th impression on front flap, not price clipped, noted as printed in Great Britain.

The boards show no soiling with a slight moisture ring to the front boards, the only markings, the slightest bit of rubbing to the spine fold edges, no significant shelfwear to note.

It shows only the most minor of rubbing, with absolutely no loss of color to any of the edges or fold areas. An absolutely fabulous dustjacket. A beautiful clean copy, one of the copies with the dark reddish brown (rust) colored boards stamped in blue, that are very hard to find. Contains the full color frontispiece "The Hill: Hobbiton-across-the Water", as well as the original line drawings by Tolkien.

Overall, a very collectible copy and more affordable for the flaws mentioned. Comes with custom made clamshell protective case. You could spend £50,000 plus for a fine condition copy of this edition. Please ask for additional photos. Bookseller Inventory # 01235
